As Utah Phillips has said, Ammon Hennacy was the original
"Catholic anarchist pacifist, vegetarian,
draft refuser in two world wars, tax resister,"
one-person revolution in America."
MORE WORDS from AMMON A. HENNACY
Born in 1893, Ammon Hennacy was a socialist and atheist in his youth; he embraced freedom of speech and thought when they were still mainstream values in North America.
Due to his anti-capitalist agitation he was imprisoned during the First World War where he learned about the revolution of the heart in solitary confinement. Having gained this wisdom and ability to love his enemy, Ammon began to travel the U.S. and Canada, teaching and spreading love wherever he went.
He worked tirelessly as a proponent of pacifism, anarchism, and the Sermon on the Mount. As a true personalist, Hennacy took direct action, picketed, fasted, and spoke to countless people wherever and whenever he could. Ammon joined the Catholic Worker Movement when he discovered that the Worker had similar values to his. He practiced what he preached, and through his wit, charm, courage, love, and wisdom, created friends out of enemies.
Lovarchy-Shalom Producers are currently in the development stage for a creative piece regarding Ammon Hennacy and the radical tradition of the U.S.A.
