Radical! Films to inspire your inner anarchist. by dave gunn
Anarchists, vegans, anti-fascists, environmentalists, queers, punks, egalitarians, atheists… This is a collection of films that in one way or another embrace radicalism, non-conformity, and counter-culture; films that shine the light on a system that is oppressive, unsustainable, and on the verge of collapse; films that inspire you to look at things in a more critical way, and maybe even quit your job and revolt; films that cater to the sensibilities of the ultra-left-wing and post-liberal.

Anarchists, vegans, anti-fascists, environmentalists, queers, punks, egalitarians, atheists…

This is a collection of films that in one way or another embrace radicalism, non-conformity, and counter-culture; films that shine the light on a system that is oppressive, unsustainable, and on the verge of collapse; films that inspire you to look at things in a more critical way, and maybe even quit your job and revolt; films that cater to the sensibilities of the ultra-left-wing and post-liberal. These are political documentaries, punk films, left-wing children’s movies, tree-hugger films, and spotlights on subcultures that rejected what they were given and told to do; films that question authority and societal standards; films that believe in equality amongst species, genders, sexual orientations, and race; films that interrogate and mock capitalism; films that reject careers, academia, and tradition; films that give you the whys or hows behind abolishing the current system.

And yes, I do believe anti-capitalism, atheism, environmental sustainability, egalitarianism, and respect for non-human animals are INHERENTLY anarchist principles.
