and VERY pertinent topic of "the history of history".
"Michael Parenti is a towering prophetic voice in American life. We need him now more than ever.” ~ Cornel West
“Parenti offers a valuable rebuttal to the drumbeat . . . from the right.” ~ New York Times Book Review
“A penetrating and persuasive writer with an astonishing array of documentation to implement his attacks.” ~ The Catholic Journalist
“Here at home and throughout the world people are fighting back against the forces of wealth, privilege, and militarism ~ some because they have no choice, others because they would choose no other course but the one that leads to peace and justice.” ~ Michael Parenti
Michael Parenti is one of my heroes. He is a much respected lecturer and historian and the author of many excellent books and in this speech he addresses the way the ruling elites manipulates our perception of history and the events that determine history.
This is a very engaging and intelligent lecture and I encourage everyone to watch it. I found it to be one of the fastest 1 1/2 hours I have spent inages.
