Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned
Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned features Socrates Fortlow, an ex-convict determined to challenge the violence and anarchy in his world and in himself. Like Socrates the Greek, Socrates Fortlow asks a lot of questions in an attempt to understand his world but, unlike his Athenian predecessor his take on the world is from the ghetto - from the bottom up. Not everyone will agree with Socrates' ethical solutions but no one will deny his pugnacious ability to grapple with the most important moral dilemmas of our time. Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned showcases the Socratic dialogues of our time.
