Last week the FBI just released its massive files on Howard Zinn, whom they began spying upon in 1949. Not sure why the eminent historian merited 423 pages of monitoring by our federal government; it seems to me like a grossly misguided use of resources. Perhaps this insightful quote of his helps to explain why the late Zinn was such a perceived threat:

“The rule of law does not do away with the unequal distribution of wealth and power, but reinforces that inequality with the authority of law. It allocates wealth and poverty in such complicated and indirect ways as to leave the victim bewildered.”
