“There has always been, and there is now, a profound
conflict of interest
between the people and the
government of the United States.”
                          ~Howard Zinn

The ultimate end of all revolutionary social change is to establish the sanctity of human life, the dignity of man, the right of every human being to liberty and well-being.       ~Emma Goldman

The right to rebellion is the right to seek a higher rule, and not to wander in mere lawlessness.
                           ~GEORGE ELIOT, Felix Holt

Resistance to improvement contradicts the noblest instincts of the race. It begets its opposite. The fanaticism of reform is only the raging of the accumulated waters caused by the obstructions which an ultra conservatism has thrown across the stream of progress; and revolution itself is but the sudden overwhelming and sweeping away of impediments that should have been seasonably removed.
~HORACE MANN, Thoughts

“Every generation needs a new revolution.”
~ Thomas Jefferson quotes (American 3rd US President (1801-09). Author of the Declaration of Independence. 1762-1826)  Similar Quotes  http://thinkexist.com/nationality/american_authors/

They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."  ~Ben Franklin, 1759

“We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.”
~Howard Zinn

“I think people are dazzled by Obama's rhetoric, and that people ought to begin to understand that Obama is going to be a mediocre president
— which means, in our time, a dangerous president
— unless there is some national movement to push him in a better direction.”
~Howard Zinn
"I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a 'thing-oriented' society to a 'person-oriented' society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church, exactly one year before he was killed. Here is a link with teaching ideas and related resources including a reading of part of the speech by Michael Ealy from Voices of a People's History of the United States: http://zinnedproject.org/ materials/ a-revolution-of-values/
We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.
~Benjamin Franklin, (attributed) at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
