Just history

Howard Zinn is a well known US American historian. I don't share his views on some parts of history but I do agree with his general approach and most of his views. Here you have an interesting speech of his.

Now the Chavez National Assembly also wants to rewrite history...once again (link in Spanish). They will try to see who else they can discover as "anti-imperialist fighter". I have no problem with that as long as they call thieves thieves and the bandits bandits, whatever the political creed. I wonder if they would be interested in inviting people who do not consider themselves pro-Chavez to a live debate. I wonder if they would welcome an open discussion with lots of professional historians.
