Amy Goodman quotes ~
• “War coverage should be more than a parade of retired generals and retired government flacks posing as reporters.”
• “The media — stenographers to power.”
• “I really do think that if for one week in the United States we saw the true face of war, we saw people's limbs sheared off, we saw kids blown apart, for one week, war would be eradicated. Instead, what we see in the U.S. media is the video war game. ”

Paul Goodman
b. 9-9-1911; New York City, NY
d. 8-2-1972; New Hampshire

Sociologist, poet, writer, anarchist, and intellectual Paul Goodman is best remembered as the author of Growing Up Absurd: Problems of Youth in the Organized Society (1960) which analyzes the causes and effects of “the disgrace of the Organised System, of semimonopolies, government, advertisers, etc., and the disaffection of the growing generation”, and in turn an inspiration to '60s student movement.

Goodman was also a co-founder of Gestalt Therapy in the 1940s and '50s.

Paul Goodman quote ~
• ...“But perhaps there has not been a failure to communicate. Perhaps the social message has been communicated clearly to the young men and is unacceptable.”
• “Wrong training can be a very innocent thing. Consider a father who allows his child to read good books. That child may soon cease to watch television or go to the movies, nor will he eventually read Book-of-the-Month Club selections, because they are ludicrous and dull. As a young man, then, he will effectually be excluded from all of Madison Avenue and Hollywood and most of publishing, because what moves him or what he creates is quite irrelevant to what is going on: it is too fine. His father has brought him up as a dodo.”

Mikhail Gorbachev
b. 3-2-1931; Privolnoye, Stavropol Krai, Russian SFSR, USSR

Poster Text: The decision to give the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize to Soviet President Michail Gorbachev was one of the most controversial in the history of the award. the members of the Nobel committee felt that Mr. Gorbachev was at least partly responsible for the dramatic changes in Eastern Europe in 1989. And they wanted to reward Mr. Gorbachev for his efforts to make his own nation more free and open. But in the months ofter the award was given many people criticized the choice. They pointed to Mr. Gorgachev's use of force against people struggling for independence in the Soviet republics of Lativia and Lituania. And they questioned whether the Soviet leader truly believed in democracy and freedom. As with Henry Kissinger, most people have strong feeling about Michail Gorbachev winning this great honor. But there is no doubt that in the 1980s, Mr. Gorbachev did more to change the world than any other leader.

Very little is known about Mikhail Gorbachev's past. But experts do know that he was born in southern Russian in 1931, and that his first job was driving a tractor. In 1950, he took the first important step in his career when he entered Moscow State University. Only the best students or those who know top officials get into this school. Mr. Gorbachev trained as a lawyer, but he decided to become an official of the Communist Party. In 1980, he became a full member of the Politburo – the top decision-making group in the Soviet government. At the age of 49, he was placed in charge of the country's agriculture. When Konstantin Chernenko died in 1985, Mr. Gorbachev took over as leader of the Soviet Union. His first task was to try to improve the nation's economy. But he was not very successful. In the early 1990s, Mr. Gorbachev was fighting to hold his nation together, and to make it as strong and wealthy as the nations of the West.

The Brothers Grimm

b. 2-24-1786 - d. 12-16-1859
Hanau, Germany

The Grimm Brothers were philologists, combinating the study of literary criticism, history, and linguistics from written historical sources. Though beginning their university studies with law (following their father) the brothers are best known for transcribing and preserving the tales of the peasant classes.

The brothers are also considered as precursors of the German democratic movement. In 1837, they and five of their fellow professors, known as the Göttinger Sieben (The Göttingen Seven), were dismissed from their positions for accusing King Ernest Augustus of Hanover as violating the constitution. (FYI - Ernest Augustus was the uncle of Victoria, who became queen of England in 1837).
