Doug Paterson is a lifelong revolutionary who has been active as an organizer and agitator since the 1960s. He is an absolute fountain of wisdom and experience. Brett sits down with Doug to discuss theater-as-resistance, campus activism in the 60s, fighting cops in the streets, the anti-war movement during the Vietnam War, draft dodging, parallels between the 60's and today, how to reach out to (and organize in) rural areas, and the continued relevance of Karl Marx in today's world.
Anyone who is an activist/organizer today has plenty to learn from Doug, he is deeply knowledgeable, perpetually engaged, and truly fascinating. Do yourself a favor and listen to this episode, you won't regret it!
