There are the true words uttered Zinn in 1970, which makes us aware again Matt Damon.
I start from the assumption that the world is turned upside down, that things are all wrong. The fact that the wrong people are in jail and the wrong people outside.
The fact that the wrong people are in power and the wrong are not in power.
That the assets are distributed in this country and around the world this way and it does not require small reform but a drastic redistribution of wealth.
I start from the assumption, we do not need to talk much about it, because all we need to do is just think about the present state of the world to realize, everything is turned upside down.
If they do not think, but only listening the TV, reading only academic stuff, then you get the idea, it's not all that bad.
Or just few things go wrong.
One has only to distance himself a bit and look at the world, then you're shocked.
So we must start from the assumption that the world is completely wrong.
And our topic is also wrong, civil disobedience.
As soon as you say the topic is civil disobedience, then you say, our problem is civil disobedience.
But that is not our problem.
Our problem is civil obedience.
Our problem is the number of people around the world who obey the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war.
Millions have been killed because of this obedience.
We know that from Nazi Germany.
We know the problem at that time was the obedience that the people there obeyed Hitler.
The man obeyed, but that was wrong.
They should have ask questions and offer resistance.
Had we been there we had shown them.
Even in Stalin's Russia, people were obedient.
All these people were like a flock.
Do you remember the bad old days where people were exploited because of feudalism ?
It was bad at that time in the Middle Ages.
But now we have Western civilization, the rule of law.
Only, the rule of law, the injustice maximized and made the rule, as it was before the law.
This has made the rule of law.
In all countries of the world is the law of the favorite of the leaders and the plague of the population.
We must recognize this finally.
We must overcome national boundaries in our thinking.
Nixon and Brezhnev have more in common than we with Nixon.
J. Edgar Hoover has more in common with the head of the Soviet secret police than us.
It's the international dedication to law and order, which connects comradely the leaders of the countries.
That is why we are always so surprised when they meet, laugh and shake hands here, smoking cigars.
They like each other, no matter what they say.
What we're trying, I suppose, is to return to the principles, goals and spirit that are in the Declaration of Independence.
This spirit is the resistance to illegitimate authority and power, which deprived people the right to life, liberty and happiness.
Therefore, it suggests itself to change under these circumstances, the current form of government or to abolish it.
However, the emphasis is on to abolish.
But in order to enforce the principles of the Declaration of Independence, we have to place ourselves outside of the law.
We must stop to obey the laws that require the killing, or how the assets will be distributed, or people because of small offenses thrown into prison and keeps other people from the prisons who have committed enormous crimes.
My hope is that this spirit stop off not only in our country but also in other countries, because all need it.
The people in all countries need the spirit of disobedience to the State.
This is not a metaphysical thing, but a thing of power and wealth.
And we need a Dependency of Understanding between all countries of the world who are striving for the same thing.
