Which Side Are You On?
Program #TERS003. Recorded in Chicago, IL on June 19, 2004.
Historian Howard Zinn says, "You can't be neutral on a moving train." Indeed, in a time of crisis you can't sit on the fence and wait for others to make the decisions for you. An engaged citizenry is the essence of democracy. The classic union song asks, "Which Side Are You On?" If we are all rendered as mere spectators and onlookers then what does that say about our democracy? It's easy to blame the media which to a some extent contribute to a general feeling of helplessness and fear, thus leading to apathy and inaction. But individuals cannot escape responsibility. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
