You Can't be Neutral on a Moving Train.
I am sad to read that Howard Zinn, America's foremost historian and political commentator has died.
For those who have never read his works I begin by telling you should go out and get a copy of A People's History of the United States. A history of the people of the country not the spokespeople or false figure heads. History is not the George Washington's, nor is it the Barrack Obama's.
Thank you Mr. Howard Zinn
May He Know True Peace
“I'm worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they're doing. I'm concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that's handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers.” Howard Zinn
