Our problem is civil obedience  (Howard Zinn Quotes) But remember, this power of the people on top depends on the obedience of the people below. When people stop obeying, they have no power  (Howard Zinn Quotes) What we have is a more sophisticated form of imperialism, which is economic. But lurking in the background, always ready to go, is an armed force  (Howard Zinn Quotes) What motivates me is the desire to bring up a whole new generation of active citizens who believe in peace and social justice and will work for it  (Howard Zinn Quotes) I always emphasize the historic role of people of color in organizing and protesting to achieve justice  (Howard Zinn Quotes) The power of a bold idea uttered publicly in defiance of dominant opinion cannot be easily measured  (Howard Zinn Quotes) Why do we have to be a military superpower? Why can’t we be a humanitarian superpower?  (Howard Zinn Quotes) I didn’t want to spent a lot of close time with someone who believed that fun is a bourgeois indulgence  (Howard Zinn Quotes) I’m worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they’re doing. I’m concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that’s handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers  (Howard Zinn Quotes) But by this time I was acutely conscious of the gap between law and justice. I knew that the letter of the law was not as important as who held the power in any real-life situation  (Howard Zinn Quotes) Being fired has some of the advantages of dying without its supreme disadvantages. People say extra-nice things about you, and you get to hear them  (Howard Zinn Quotes) I knew that a historian (or a journalist, or anyone telling a story) was forced to choose, out of an infinite number of facts, what to present, what to omit. And that decision inevitably would reflect, whether consciously or not, the interests of the historian  (Howard Zinn Quotes) Is not nationalism - that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder - one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred? These ways of thinking - cultivated, nurtured, indoctrinated from childhood on - have been useful to those in power, and deadly for those out of power  (Howard Zinn Quotes) The chief problem in historical honesty is not outright lying. It is omission or de-emphasis of important data. The definition of ‘important’, of course, depends on one’s values  (Howard Zinn Quotes) People who have no respect for human life or for freedom or justice have taken over this beautiful country of ours. It will be up to the American people to take it back  (Howard Zinn Quotes) Each situation has to be evaluated separately, for all are different. In general, I believe in non-violent direct action, which involve organizing large numbers of people, whereas too often violent uprisings are the product of a small group. If enough people are organized, violence can be minimized in bringing about social change  (Howard Zinn Quotes)
