Listed on these pages are films, music and books that I have found to contain progressive messages and ideas or some other valuable tidbit. Not all of these selections are necessarily overtly promoting socialism or socialist values, but they have nevertheless resonated with me and, intentionally or not, taught me something important about the world we live in, how things really are, and how they ought to be. Sometimes I glance back through these lists and wonder why I included certain items, but it must have contained some passage or scene that made me think. So, these are just suggestions for you to consider. You just might get something beneficial out of them, or you may not. Your call.
