Howard Zinn: “We Cannot Tolerate War”

Howard Zinn: “We Cannot Tolerate War”

January 27, 2010

Courtesy of Democracy Now, watch this footage of Howard Zinn’s speech at Boston University on November 11, 2009, on the subject of America’s three “Holy Wars”: The American Revolution, the Civil War, and World War II.

From a transcript of the ending of the talk

“No matter what we’re told, what tyrant exists, what border has been crossed, what aggression has taken place. It’s not that we’re going to be passive in the face of tyranny or aggression. No! But we’ll find ways other than war to deal with whatever problems we have because war is inevitably, inevitably the indiscriminate massive killing of huge numbers of people and children are a good part of those people.

Every war is a war against children.”
