Swim against the current even a dead fish can go with the flow by Jim Hightower( Recording )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don't look around, but the corporate and political powers that be want you to put this book down, right now. It definitely is NOT on their approved list ... Swim against the current is one of those books that the power elites don't like seeing in stores, much less in your hands -- not merely because it challenges their established order, but especially because our book reveals paths that folks like you can use to escape their rigid, hierarchical structures and discover a bit more satisfaction in life. They prefer that you pick up one of those escapist novels over there across the store, rather than finding out that the greatest escape of all can be from stultifying conventional wisdom. We Americans are constantly harassed into thinking that we can't break the mold that those in charge have made for us. But as a friend of ours puts it: "Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt those who are doing it." It's the uplifting stories of mavericks that we tell here. They've broken free of the corporate tentacles, free of business-as-usual politics, free of top-down elites. They're figuring out new ways to do commerce, ways to create political channels that empower grassroots Americans, and ways to live their lives

Bill Moyers journal. writer Barry Lopez( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final edition of the Journal begins by examining the new populism: after a report on Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, proud and vocal inheritors of America's populist spirit, Bill Moyers sits down with populist agitator Jim Hightower to look at the history and legacy of people's movements and to discuss how ordinary people can reclaim their political power. Then, Moyers is joined by the award-winnng writer Barry Lopez to discuss nature, spirit, and the human condition. Through novels, essays, articles, and stories -- and collaborations with musicians, playwrights, photographers, and artists -- Lopez has arguably become the messenger of America's ecological unconscious. An introduction to the new public affairs program Need to know and a heartfelt thank-you to all who have made Bill Moyers journal a success conclude the program ... and the series
