Howard Zinn why do you have to be such an extremist?
How is it that criticizing this man is an act of treason to humanity and reason? I want to like Zinn, but he is just relentless. There is nothing civil or reasonable about Zinn’s rhetoric. He seems like a nice guy with a good point, but more than that, he would have us all bowing to Castro and any other communist leader/thug. How Zinn can think that Castro and co. are better leaders for the masses than our very flawed leaders is beyond me. It certainly intimates more going on beneath the surface of Zinn’s civil veneer.
