Hardcore National Geographic

I think this is important but also kinda weird. It almost comes off as a joke... But it's not: National Geographic's profile on the 25 year old movement, straight edge. Narrated by Thurston Moore.

From National Geographic:
Youth can be a minefield: drugs, sex, violence, and peer pressure. One group has an extreme way of dealing with it. They call themselves Straight Edge, and while they are being classified as a violent gang in areas such as Salt Lake City and Reno, they aren’t like any other gang you know: they reject drugs, drinking, smoking, and even casual sex. They’re rebels against a society in which everything goes. National Geographic goes inside this growing youth movement caught between being a refuge for Americas kids and a dangerous gang wanted by authorities.

Here are parts one three four and five.
