Historical Parallels to the Post 9/11 Political Scene

In this speech first delivered at the 2003 MLA in San Diego and currently hosted by the Colorado Campaign for Middle East Peace, Grover Furr outlines "five striking parallels between the post 9/11 situation today and that of WW1 and the post-WW1 period. They are: laws; imperialism; class oppression; racism; war profiteering; and media propaganda."

"What Can We Learn from the Teens?: Protest, Rebellion, Commitment: Then and Now"
