Karl Hess: Toward Liberty
A tribute to former Barry Goldwater speechwriter Karl Hess (1923-1994), often described as the "most beloved libertarian," who became a spokesman for a social philosophy called appropriate technology (AT). He encourages the audience to examine social issues and to think of society as people rather than institutions.
