American history is rich with stories of social change inspired by the actions of motivated individuals and organized groups. Today's activists are no different - facing long odds against powerful and systemic special interests. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with young but very experienced organizers George Goehl, Ai-Jen Poo, and Sarita Gupta, all involved with a nationwide citizens' initiative called the 99% Spring, which took place the week of April 9, 2012. Organizers aimed to train 100,000 Americans to teach about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses, and the streets. The program concludes with a Moyers essay on what citizens can do to find out who's paying for all those political ads running on their local television stations.
The image of "the intellectual" as a person unaware of mundane reality changed with the advent of broadcasting, which turned deep thinkers into celebrities, experts at using the media to transmit their views. From experimental thought inspired by two world wars to the youth rebellions of the 1960s, this program presents historic footage of the political and economic theorists who helped mold 20th-century Britain. Bertrand Russell reveals what turned him from philosophy to politics, William Beveridge explains his stance on the welfare state, Milton Friedman defends monetarism, and Germaine Greer defines key concepts of the Women's Liberation Movement. Also featured are J. M. Keynes, Isaiah Berlin, Herbert Marcuse, Tariq Ali, Ralph Miliband, Selma James, Keith Joseph, and Francis Fukuyama.
