Discover the Networks

The continuing controversy over Frances Fox Piven puts me in mind of Discover the Networks a website run by David Horowitz’s Freedom Center. Discover the Networks is an easy-to-use and very worthwhile guide to the American political left. I found the site tremendously helpful while researching Radical-in-Chief. Discover the Networks updates frequently, and I’m pleased to see that it’s already incorporated some of my own research on modern American socialism and community organizing. Take a look at the Discover the Networks’ entry on Frances Fox Piven for a sense of how helpful this site can be. When you’re engaged in active debate with the left, it’s always good to know who the players are. Discover the Networks is an invaluable resource. Get to know it.

I talk about this with Michael Breen on my latest Q&A. Breen is one of our best Korea-watchers, one of our soundest ... Read More
