From Michael Moore

"From the start, my teaching was infused with my own history. I would try
to be fair to other points of view, but I wanted more than 'objectivity';
I wanted students to leave my classes not just better informed, but
more prepared to relinquish the safety of silence, more prepared
to speak up, to act against injustice wherever they saw it.
This, of course, was a recipe for trouble."
– Howard Zinn

Howard Zinn on
'Patriotism & The Fourth of July' | 'War is Not a Solution for Terrorism' | 'Why War Fails' | 'From Empire to Democracy' | 'Obama's Historic Victory'

Check Out Howard Zinn's: 'A People's History of the United States'
"One of the most important books to read in your lifetime."
– Michael Moore
