For Daniel Ellsberg, the similarities between today’s wars and the Vietnam War are frightening.
“It is amazing that we are in a situation that is at a hopeless stalemate again,” Ellsberg said. “It is another case of those in charge not willing to do something for fear of being called names.”
That is why Ellsberg conveyed the message that truth-telling, no matter the consequences, is worth the risk. Ellsberg screened the Oscar-nominated film about him, “The Most Dangerous Man in America,” on Wednesday night in front of about 350 people in Ford Hall at Ithaca College.
