San Francisco, CA
Howard Zinn chronicled U.S. history from the oppressed point of view, but according to Glenn Beck the use of the term "oppressed" in reference to America is merely historical, and today's voices of discontent are more aptly described as victimhood mongers and whiners.
In this walk surveying social movements originating in San Francisco (or nearby), Zinn and Beck are used as touchstone perspectives in examining social movements past and present.
