it turns out that choosing to protect and give immunity to those responsible for systematically torturing people and not prosecute anyone for war crimes is a very bad thing that just leads to history repeating itself.

Howard Zinn speaking at a Mayday festival in 2007

“It means that the children of Iraq have as much of a right to life as our children. It means that people who have come here from another country should have exactly the same rights as people in this country. It means that everybody has a right to healthcare no matter who they are, no matter where they come from…

If we really followed the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, that all people everywhere have the same right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, then we could not have war anymore. We are violating that principle everyday as our troops do mayhem in Iraq, and as we build up a military prepared to do mayhem in Iran or some other place… If we want to have a humane and truthful definition of patriotism then we have to distinguish between the government and the people. And we have to understand that the interests of the government may run counter to the interests of the people…

It’s ironic that we are building walls around the world to keep people out. We are building a wall along the southern border of California to keep Mexicans out of the territory that we stole from them in the Mexican War. And now they are building walls in Israel to keep Palestinians from moving to wherever they should have a right to move. You may recall when the Berlin wall was built we were outraged, and when the wall came down everybody was celebrating and happy that this was freedom. And now we’re violating the spirit of bringing down walls.”
