Columbus Day Question: Why Are We Celebrating?

In the clip below, radio host Thom Hartmann speaks about the facts of Christopher Columbus so-called "discovery" of the Americas, echoing much of what you might have seen in the cartoon by The Oatmeal that we wrote about earlier today. Hartmann also links Columbus' savagery and the mentality of conquest to modern-day issues including wealth inequality, corporate control of government, and the war in Afghanistan. "This isn't just a story about Hispaniola," Hartmann says. "The same has been done to indigenous people worldwide. Slavery, apartheid, the entire concept of conservative Darwinian economics have been used to justify continued suffering by masses of human beings."
