Socialism: ‘Let’s Share Things’

“Socialism basically said, hey, let’s have a kinder, gentler society. Let’s share things.”
Howard Zinn, Madison, Wisconsin, 2009

While we’re sharing things, how about we share the fact that Howard Zinn was a member of the Communist Party USA during the worst years of Stalinist repression?

On July 30, 2010, the FBI released one file with three sections totaling 423 pages on Howard Zinn, a best selling radical historian, teacher, playwright, and political activist. . . .
In 1949, the FBI opened a domestic security investigation on Zinn (FBI File # 100-360217). The Bureau noted Zinn’s activities in what were called Communist Front Groups and received informant reports that Zinn was an active member of the CPUSA; Zinn denied ever being a member when he was questioned by agents in the 1950s.

Read more of the fascinating story of Zinn’s years in the Communist Party and his association with key figures of the 1960s “New Left.”
