Wars are packaged and sold – A tribute to Howard Zinn

Join us tonight (28 January 2010) at 9pm on Bush Radio 89.5 fm to pay tribute to Howard Zinn who passed away yesterday. Zinn was a historian, activist and professor emeritus in the Political Science Department at Boston University. He was the author of more than 20 books, including A People’s History of the United States.

Zinn died of a heart attack at the age of 87. He is survived by his daughter Myla Kabat-Zinn.

Zinn was active in the civil rights, civil liberties and anti-war movements in the United States, and wrote extensively on all three subjects.

Several of his talks have been featured on Bush Radio (featured prominently in the BUSH AGAINST WAR campaign) and tonight we bring you “Three Holy Wars” – which was recorded on the 11 November 2009 in Boston on Veteran’s Day.

From the introduction to tonight’s talk:

“The conventional view of U.S. wars follows a formulaic line: We are innocent victims of unprovoked attacks. The sleeping giant wakes and reluctantly goes to fight. All military action is imbued with benevolent intentions: human rights, democracy, and liberty. There are parades and flag-waving. Solemn ceremonies and gun salutes at funerals honor the fallen. But who asks for what and for whom were they killed? Who benefits? Weapons manufacturers and mercenary contractors make out like bandits. That’s a taboo subject. Resources? Empire expansion? Don’t go there. Stick to patriotism. You can mouth the typical prattle of they died for freedom. The Afghan war is Operation Enduring Freedom. And war crimes? That’s what they do, not us. Tribunals? Same deal: for them. Wars are packaged and sold just like any other commodity. Propaganda is skillfully used to win over the population. “
