“If those in charge of our society – politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television – can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves.”
— Howard Zinn
It is no longer ‘if’ – it is where we are now.
We need to remember, though, that just because something is, doesn’t always mean that it will always be. The tools for change remain in our hands – we just have to remember to use them.
