Recap: The People Speak!

Howard Zinn, the late historian and author of “A People’s History of the United States,” is famous for his retelling of the sanitized American history taught in government-approved school.

Two members of the DFW Alliance of the Libertarian Left attended a viewing of Zinn’s “The People Speak” at 1919 Hemphill, an activist headquarter in downtown Fort Worth. I don’t want to give a review of the movie, as I’m sure that can be found elsewhere, especially since I have never read either book that the movie is based on. The stories told won’t be a surprise those who favor consent-based solutions to social ills since the government’s only tool is violence.

1919’s building was really inspiring too. A free library is organized by members of the local Industrial Workers of the World and participants are self organizing activism. I was short on time and a bit chilly to discuss any future activism, but for those interested, the 1919 calendar lists music performances and meetings taking place in the near future.
