Matt Damon Reads Howard Zinn on Civil Disobedience

Matt Damon reads from Howard Zinn’s speech “The Problem is Civil Obedience” (November 1970) from Voices of a People's History on Vimeo.

(There is More After The Ad)

I am not advocating the ideas of Howard Zinn here. I don’t know enough about him. He appears to be some sort of anarcho-socialist. I don’t agree with everything in the video, but I do agree that we should not blindly obey the state.

Conservapedia actually says Zinn was a communist: http://www.conservapedia.com/Howard_Zinn

Ron Paul on Racism

I like this quotation from Ron Paul. He is basically saying that liberty and respect for the individual are the answer to racism, not big statist government schemes.

Here is the source of the quotation:
