The spark was slow to start, but it has grown since. Tea Partiers challenged conservative politicians to keep their promises; Walmart and fast-food workers went on strike for a raise; Wall Street found itself Occupied; the deaths of unarmed young men touched off a 21st-century black freedom struggle. The movements swelled, intersected, and spread around the country, helped along by social media. At their core, they were all challenges to who wields power in the US, regardless of political allegiance.
Necessary Trouble offers listeners an understanding of today's new radicals - the troublemakers of all stripes who refuse to sit any longer on the sidelines and wait for things to improve.

A valuable perspective about organizations disrupting the current status quo,
Liked the perspectives about the 'n' groups creating trouble - their worldview.
Disliked the simplicity that since Capitalism has problems the answer is Socialism - is taken as a given without any strategic analysis or historical perspective.
Nevertheless an important perspective about "what's going on" for those who wish to attempt to understand.
