Macktown is a problem-child city that was intentionally cut off from and forgotten by general society as an example to other cities of how not to resist government control. It was forced to learn to operate under its own government policies, laws, and by the common bond of its citizens. Left to itself to collapse under the strong arm of poverty, the citizens emerge strong and the stories capture their struggles and psychological battles; the frustrations, determination, and radical ideologies inspired during their plight of survival. Reaching from the early sixties to the late 1980s, from the desperation of the streets to the power of government, not only are the stories of Macktown thought-provoking, but there is a learning curve that goes outside the box of the influence of street knowledge and into a reflective appreciation for unconventional politics and community empowerment.
