American war correspondent Martha Gellhorn
Power, Illusion, and America’s Last Taboo
by John Pilger, from his address to Socialism 2009 in San Francisco, California on July 4, 2009, September 2nd, 2009

[Anti-American is] what governments and their vested interested call those who honor America by objecting to war and the theft of resources and believing in all of humanity. There are millions of these anti-Americans in the United States. They are ordinary people who belong to no elite and who judge their government in moral terms, though they would call it common decency. They are not vain. They are the people with a wakeful conscience, the best of America’s citizens. They can be counted on. They were in the south with the Civil Rights movement, ending slavery. They were in the streets, demanding an end to the wars in Asia. Sure, they disappear from view now and then, but they are like seeds beneath the snow. I would say they are truly exceptional.
