July 30, 2010Q: What is the greatest tribute an activist can be given? A: The enmity of those in power. To that end, the FBI has today offered a great tribute to the late, great Howard Zinn, in the form of a 423-page declassified FBI file, covering Zinn's activities from 1949 to 1974: essentially a list — vetted by America's "best and brightest" and their faithful assistants of the period — of everything Howard Zinn did during the McCarthy Era, the Vietnam War, and all points in between to stymie the government and promote social justice and a more open society. Happy reading — and thanks, Howard; you will be forever missed.
