Even when I was a libertarian I loved Public Enemy. I'd say I disagreed with most of their politics, but loved the music. In the end you can only resist the awesome booming truth of Chuck D's voice for so long.

Where did the term libertarian originate? As far as I can tell, libertarians are just anarchists right? Is there any difference between libertarianism and anarchy?

Yay! I was about 7 when PE got big so I kind of missed out. My older brother's friend got this VHS but his mom found out and threw it away.

Yeah, I was a bit too young and white to get in to this one at the time, and in high school for whatever reason my friends and I were all really in to Fear Of a Black Planet but didn't pay much attention to the rest of their output. I picked this up on VHS when I was maybe 17 or 18 and working at a video store, and I'm pretty sure I've still got it in my closet.
It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back has always been my favorite. I've loved just about everything they put out. Even their new stuff is better than most of everything else coming out of hip hop.
It's mine too, but I got in to it late.

I was like, ten years old and newly arrived in the United States when PE got big. I'm white and my family lived in the suburbs, and I was like, genuinely terrified that the SW1s were going to come up to Westchester and give me a personalized beatdown.
What I'm saying is that Chuck D and Co. were really good at what they did, because I'm pretty sure that was at least part of the point.
