During the Q&A period, it was pointed out that both Zinn and Chomsky have the same approach to the presidential election as Bernie Sanders, a socialist, and Sam Webb, a communist. The question of voting for the "lesser of two evils" was addressed, as well as the myth of elections being the zenith of democracy.
Howard Zinn is a former Boston University professor and author of A People's History of the United States, which examines historical grassroots movements and their impact on American society. Noam Chomsky is a renowned professor of linguistics at M.I.T. and an analyst of U.S. foreign policy.
This speech was recorded on September 27, 2004, at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston.
