Anti-Wage-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 466-467

(August 24, 1922 – January 27, 2010)

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, historian and author

I have been asked to imagine this situation: "The progressive third party movement has captured the White House, 60% of Congress and 30 Governorships. What do we do now?"
Establish a guaranteed annual income for every family in the nation, thus eliminating the need for "welfare".

Guarantee adequate housing for everyone, using rental subsidies and interest-free loans.

Notes for a Gathering
by Howard Zinn


  • I liked Howard Zinn's appearance in the documentary The Corporation (which still remains the scariest documentary I've ever seen). Sad that he's gone.
