It feels like modern politics has got a bit lost, doesn't it? In the world of rightwing populism, it's a lonely place for progressives, liberals and socialists alike. But scratch the surface of radical history and you realise there's always been hope. You're part of a movement that began centuries ago, made incredible progress, and continues to struggle for democracy, liberation and equality to this day. So forget the gloom for a moment, and start talking about the Suffragettes. And the Chartists. The Peasants' Revolt of 1381 and the founding of the NHS in 1948. Because those who own their history, own their future.
