An extended quote composed of numerous individual murrine components framed with opaque black on the vertical sides. Cut, polished and beveled on all sides. The late American historian, playwright, and activist Howard Zinn is quoted here:
“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”
