Finding Freedom through Communication

The U.S. Constitution – according to Howard Zinn

“The Constitution, then, illustrates the complexity of the American system: that it serves the interests of a wealthy elite, but also does enough for small property owners, for middle-income mechanics and people who make up this base of support are buffers against the blacks, the Indians, the very poor whites. They enable the elite to keep control with a minimum coercion, a maximum of law – all made palatable by the fanfare of patriotism and unity.”

-Howard Zinn, A People’s History of the United States
