“The human mind, which is capable of so many remarkable things, is also capable of rationalizing the greatest of evils.”

It’s been a tough couple days for literature with both JD Salinger and Howard Zinn’s deaths, but for Zinn there’s a recent local connection.

In 2007, to correspond with Martha Rosler’s “Bringing the War Home” exhibition at the Worcester Art Museum, the WAM invited Howard Zinn to speak at Tuckerman Hall. Thankfully, they recorded it.

It’s an hour and fifteen minutes long–and why shouldn’t it be? With the country’s two wars in full swing he had plenty to talk about. It’s definitely worth a listen.
