Persevering No Matter What with Margaret J. Wheatley (repeat)
New Dimensions | August 21, 2012 | 5:00 am

How is it that some people devote their lives to a cause or a person or place, while some others give up and quit? How is it that even in the midst of failures, betrayals, reversals, some people still remain focused and dedicated to their cause? What keeps us persevering? What drags us under when we experience set-backs, failures, criticism? Margaret Wheatley says, “We really don’t know what is going to happen; we don’t know what the future is. We can work as much as we can and with as much diligence and vigilance as we can to create a positive future.

Howard Zinn on Emma Goldman, Anarchism & War Resistance
Alternative Radio | August 22, 2012 | 9:00 am

Emma Goldman is largely an unknown figure today. She deserves wider recognition. She was born in Lithuania and died in 1940. She spent many years as an organizer in the United States. She was a major anarchist thinker and activist as well as a passionate advocate for women's rights. Anarchism today is mostly viewed negatively. It's seen as a synonym for disorder and chaos. Few recognize it as a political philosophy rooted in the ideals of the Enlightenment. Noam Chomsky calls it "the libertarian wing of socialism." Anarchism not only opposes the institutions of state coercion and violence, it questions the very legitimacy of the state. Howard Zinn gave this talk on Emma and Anarchism a decade ago in Caimbridge, Massachusetts
