Howard Zinn


Historian and former guest on New Dimensions, the late Howard Zinn, once said: “To live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”



Justine Willis TomsAs a listener to New Dimensions I know you appreciate how these deep dialogues encourage us to live “in defiance” of what wants to depress us and bring us down. I’m not suggesting that we should put our heads in the sand and not be aware of the challenges of this post-modern era. I’m suggesting that we not let it stop us from making our own creative contribution to the positive good for all.

Besides this reminder, I’m also putting out a request. I’m the principal fundraiser for New Dimensions and I’m seeing our revenues dwindling. If you are fan of New Dimensions and are inspired by our in-depth interviews that break away from mainstream media’s sound-bytes and infotainment, please consider becoming a member/donor now. We are supported by our listeners. Please click here to contribute now.

With much gratitude,
