Howard Zinn: Our Problem Is Civil Obedience

 I miss Howard Zinn. I love Howard Zinn.
And he lives on in my heart and soul and those of 
millions of others. Bless the courageous ones
who come here to teach us so much!

Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.

- Howard Zinn
