Abolish War - Oldies but goodies

Howard Zinn in May 2006 in Los Angeles.
Born on August 24, 1922 Brooklyn– Died on January 27, 2010


Favourite part is around 7'32' "Governments in history have never been dependable in taking care of the needs of people. After all, governments are not set up for that purpose. Governments are set up to serve certain interests and not the interest of the people."
"Occasionally it can get friendly when there's a great people movement that compels it to be friendly.
So it's really up to us, it is up to the people of the world to abolish war."


In one of his last interviews, Zinn stated that he would like to be remembered "for introducing a different way of thinking about the world, about war, about human rights, about equality," and for getting more people to realize that the power which rests so far in the hands of people with wealth and guns, that the power ultimately rests in people themselves and that they can use it. At certain points in history, they have used it. Black people in the South used it. People in the women's movement used it. People in the anti-war movement used it. People in other countries who have overthrown tyrannies have used it."
