    Post: TruthOut Aug 10 Why Feds Fear Thinkers Like Howard Zinn

    Posted by Sharon Kramer on 8/05/10

    Zinn, who died in January at the age of 87, did not
    advocate violence or support the overthrow of the
    government, something he told FBI interrogators on several
    occasions. He was rather an example of how genuine
    intellectual thought is always subversive. It always
    challenges prevailing assumptions as well as political and
    economic structures. It is based on a fierce moral autonomy
    and personal courage and it is uniformly branded by the
    power elite as “political.” Zinn was a threat not because
    he was a violent revolutionary or a communist but because
    he was fearless and told the truth.
