Bringing Democracy Alive
Program #ZINH021. Recorded in Denver, CO on October 05, 1998.
According to Howard Zinn, democracy is people on the move, doing something about issues they care about. But the media doesn't report these kinds of activities. We're taught to think that democracy is the three branches of government, and citizens going to the polls to vote. In reality, only great movements bring democracy alive, when numerous small actions converge and change results. Getting together in solidarity with others to resist injustice is a victory in itself. If social change comes about, good. If not, it's still worth doing.
Recorded at the Turnhalle at Metro State College.
