Howard Zinn! The tank team discusses the great historian, author, activist, playwright, intellectual and professor of political science, Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922 - January 27, 2010). Listen to the show to hear about the man that has been a long time influence on the tank crew. Also, movie discussions of A Serious Man, Midgets vs. Mascots, The White Ribbon, Zombieland, Couple's Retreat, a visit to our mailbag, a special quote from Eugene Debs and more!
We were not born critical of existing society. There was a moment in our lives (or a month, or a year) when certain facts appeared before us, startled us, and then caused us to question beliefs that were strongly fixed in our consciousness-embedded there by years of family prejudices, orthodox schooling, imbibing of newspapers, radio, and television. This would seem to lead to a simple conclusion: that we all have an enormous responsibility to bring to the attention of others information they do not have, which has the potential of causing them to rethink long-held ideas.
- Howard Zinn, 2005
