Howard Zinn (1922-2010)
Most normal people want to contribute and give back.
Some people take it to an extreme and are willing to risk their lives.
These are noble impulses.
The problem is not thinking the whole proposition through.
Are you really “serving your country” by going where the devils in Washington send you to?
The greatest shame in America is that many of the nation’s most honorable, hard working, courageous people are serving the government instead of the nation’s highest principles.
There is s world of difference as Howard Zinn makes so eloquently clear in this short clip.
