A Conversation with Historian, Author and Activist Harvey Wasserman
“Those who fail to learn the lessons of history condemn THE REST OF US to repeat it.” — Swami Beyondananda
This week Wiki Politiki is fortunate indeed to welcome one of the foremost progressive historians, anti-nuclear activists, and outside-the-matrix political “uncommontators” of our time, Harvey Wasserman.
Harvey is a life-long activist who speaks, writes and organizes widely on energy, the environment, history, drug war, election protection and grassroots politics. His breakthrough book, Harvey Wasserman’s History of the United States, was first published by Harper & Row (NY) in 1972, and featured an introduction by Howard Zinn.
His mission is the permanent shutdown of the nuclear power industry (he actually originated the phrase “No Nukes”), and the birth of Solartopia, a democratic and socially just green-powered Earth free of all fossil and nuclear fuels. Unlike many activists these days, he knows what he is FOR, and his sharp commentary cuts through both neoconservative and neoliberal BS. His recent article, 57 Unpatriotic Ways the Corp/Dems Have Enthroned Trumputin skewers the Democratic Party establishment corporatocracy, and he is indeed a “clear voice in the bewilderness.”
