It s been years since I had read this book and it is shameful that one forgets any of it This is the book that probably captures the essence of Howard Zinn as my intellectual hero More than an academic Howard Zinn was the type of person that never forgot the struggle of growing up poor He never forgot the challenges the strife and never lost the compassion for others even as his fortunes improved A former bombardier Zinn arrived at the notion that war was just a way to brutalize all those involved to justify the atrocities commuted by both sides It ultimately solved little despite moral justifications And without maligning the soldiers that fought in it Zinn simply kept asking the uestion of how it could eliminated Rather than any bitterness Zinn is the most hopeful of any of the historians and social issues writers He sees hope in the most minute human demonstrations of compassion He seems small improvements even as change has to break through endless resistance and often leave those seeking it bloodied and beaten Mostly I admire Zinn because he cared about people their right to happiness education health fulfillment He cared about the people without lobbyists profit sheets exploitable natural resources In today s world that s somewhat radical notion a socialist notion I suppose Howard Zinn reminds us to turn the tables and think of it as a human notion and responsibility Revolutionary change does not come as one cataclysmic moment beware of such moments but as an endless succession of surprises moving zig zag towards a decent society We don t have to engage in grand heroic actions to participate in the process of change Small acts when multiplied by millions of people can transform the world p 208
