In classic Earthworks' easy-to-read style, 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right
offers inspirational yet practical advice for anyone wanting to reclaim democracy in America, outlining what steps can be taken to restore a balance of political power through everyday actions...and why they matter so much. From the simplest efforts (why bumper stickers count) to more committed ones (become a precinct captain) and everything in-between, this small volume packs a punch.
Aimed at anyone who is disgruntled with the current political quagmire of lies, deception, uncertainty in Iraq, or anyone who recognizes that our most basic freedoms (free speech, privacy, fair elections, truthful and transparent media, to name a few) are slipping away, this book is a call to action. It encourages readers to stand up for their values, to reclaim patriotism and faith, and, together, to build truly democratic communities. 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right outlines a strategy for progressives to strengthen the bonds that unite them and offers concrete steps to express those shared values in the world every day.
