David Swanson


David Swanson, author of War is a Lie, discusses the October 6th event (don’t call it a rally) in Washington’s Freedom Plaza, modeled on Egypt’s Tahrir Square revolution; how to get the MoveOn crowd interested in war/peace issues again, instead of public school lunch menus; and the benefits of bringing our war money home, diverting 1+ trillion/year away from the military industrial complex.

  1. Give it up. The only thing the massive protests during the Vietnam war accomplished was getting the oligarchy to realize that they needed a volunteer military.

    Until the vast majority loose their bread and circuses, absolutely nothing will change. And when they do, it'll be far too late. Get what you can for yourself in an ethical manner right now. You're wasting your time trying to wake up that vast, vast majority of idiots.

    1. People ARE waking up Winston. Listen to Alex Jones at infowars.com, the fastest growing radio program in the world with 24 million listeners last month. Instead of complaining about bread and circus, get involved. Tell your friends and family to wake up, grow up and SHOW UP on October 6.

  2. Will this event, like so many of the others break along culture war lines? So, will the Paulites be there, how about Ron Paul?
