This lecture from the Pacifica Radio Archives features historian Howard Zinn, author of "The People's History of the United States", discussing Christopher Columbus. When Columbus encountered the American continent by accident in 1492 there were tens of millions of indigenous Indians already there practicing various forms of tribal spirituality. In order to legalize the plundering of the lands of these indigenous people, the Pope proclaimed the Doctrine of Discovery, a law that said that only Christians could hold title to lands, and that lands inhabited by non-Christians were available for the taking. In his lecture, Zinn shares excerpts from Columbus' journals and examines popular misconceptions and realities about him that are rarely talked about as Columbus Day and the "discovery of America" are celebrated year after year.
