what is the truth in a world full of lies? why fear distraction when truth is now lie? why even waste a breath on nonsense or conjecture when talk is hot air not even worth heating one on a cold day? t

What a great human being we have lost as a global community. Truly saddening. Chomsky's comment on Zinn's passing: "His writings have changed the consciousness of a generation, and helped open new paths to understanding and its crucial meaning for our lives. When action has been called for, one could always be confident that he would be on the front lines, an example and trustworthy guide."

“If those in charge of our society - politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television - can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves," - Howard Zinn ExposingtheWicked: I think what Zinn was trying to convey was that if we let those who lead us dictate our ideas and our very way of thinking, then they've got control over us. By infiltrating our minds and making us blindly believe what they want us to believe, they no longer have to try to control us; they already have. And I think that quote is a great example of #7 in the L.A.S.E.R.S. manifesto (We want to think our own thoughts).
