Video: Ralph Nader on the "Epidemic of Self-Censorship" and the need for "Peaceful Tomorrows"

By BillyClub - Posted on 18 September 2011

A roundtable discussion was held on September 12, 2011, at Busboys & Poets in Washington, D.C. It featured the People's Lawyer, Ralph Nader. He brought up his concern about the "epidemic of self-censorship" in the country leading up the launching of the illegal and immoral Iraq War by the Bush-Cheney Gang. Mr. Nader also quoted learned historians on the Fall of Rome and Greece to remind the audience that if citizens fail to speak out, they risk losing all of their "freedoms." He then read into the record the statement of the "September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows." It had been issued on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.To see the full video on this event, "A Forum on the Precarious State of the American Republic, the US Constitution & Civil Liberties, Post-9/11," go to: Vimeo.
