A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn  MAY 12 1998

I'm reading this book called "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn. Pretty good book so far. The basic premise is that the govt. of the land which is now the United States of America functions solely for the benefit of the rich. Which is pretty accurate I guess...I agree with a lot of what Zinn has to say.

Except for the word "solely." I don't like that word. Socio-political and socio-economic situations don't deal in absolutes. Do they?
