A visual, fast moving and engaging presentation of stories to show what ordinary people can do to change their own worlds without governments. It is equal parts personal story, radical history and organizing philosophy based on crow's experiences as a radical and anarchist organizer in the US, with a focus on the creation of the Common Ground Collective--the largest anarchist/horizontal inspired organization in modern US history formed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
