Interview with Saul Alinsky, Part Eight
Saul Alinsky is, along with Thomas Paine, Henry George, and Dorothy Day, one of the great American leaders of the nonsocialist left.

A sci-fi comedy, a fish-out-water-story, and a buddy-road-journey plus an intellectual quest. When Crik gets accidentally sucked from now into 2112 by a malfunctioning chronoscope, he must prove to the future’s authorities that in our time, he was the agent of change who put society on its path toward harmony with nature. If he can’t prove he was the future’s founders, then the future authorities must return Crik to the exa
