    If you feel like the world needs to change but you don't know how to get started on doing your part this book is here to help It features 50 personal essays of political action from people all over the US and each essay has several tips for how you can do something similar in your own lifeA few of the ideas are starting a political book club registering voters in likely or unlikely places taking action with your family reading news and watching less TV news and so onBut remember these are just normal people They have day jobs just like you They have families and demanding kids just like you Sometimes they feel like what they think or do doesn't matter just like you The only difference is that they've chosen to take a few minutes out of their month or day or week to do something that makes them feel better about themselves and about the direction of their communityBut this lies in all of us We all have the power to throw off the restraints of despair and rekindle some hope in our lives and the lives of those around usI should probably disclose that the essay on page 30 is mine But this isn't about personal promotion I assure you All the proceeds from this book are funneled back into MoveOnorg I have read the essays in this book and I find them truly inspiring I hope you will tooAnd with that I'll leave you with these bits of wisdomYou may encounter many defeats but you must not be defeated In fact it may be necessary to encounter the defeats so you can know who you are what you can rise from how you can still come out of it Maya AngelouThe world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look at it without doing anything Albert EinsteinWhatever you do may seem insignificant but it is most important that you do it Mahatma Gandhi

    This is a description of things anyone can do to become a catalyst for change and help reclaim democracy The actions run the gamut from things that take little effort to things that take a considerable amount of effortThe first step is to connect with other people Start a website or blog and let people know that it exists Speak out online Email the President and other politicians Spread the word about online petitions Vote no matter what Register voters in unlikely places Get your office to vote Maximize the vote on election day Participate in a phone bankThen there is the news media Read watch TV news less If you know that a piece of reporting is biased don’t sit and fume respond to it Tell the media about uncovered events Start a political book club Try your hand at writing an op ed piece If you don’t like the media make your ownIn the area of politics start with writing to Congress Support clean elections Volunteer for or help run a campaign Donate money or host a house party Run for office if only to force the incumbent to actually debate the issues Investigate your state’s laws about initiating a constitutional amendment; if it’s possible do it Serve your community Take action with your family Host a political salon Help others express their political views If possible get a socially responsible day job or bank with or invest in groups that strengthen communitiesThis book is excellent The individual essays are written by actual MoveOn members Some of the actions may seem like common sense but everyone needs occasional reminders These actions can be done by anyone regardless of age income level amount of available time or walk of life Anyone who wants to get involved in this thing called democracy would do very well to start right here

    This book is really simple a list of ways to influence politics and find fulfillment in that arena each helpfully explained by the accompanying essay The methods are a mix of personal and social easy and hard; the book also has many sidebars with tips and tricks to accomplishing each goal If your local library has a copy go ahead and read its non partisan advice for how to be a political citizen You may change your life in an important way


  5. Aaron Aaron says:

    Not bad though some of the suggestions felt like repeats or felt too impractical And of course since it's from MoveOn all the stories are from a leftist point of view which resonates with me of course but I appreciate diverse viewpoints in my reading Still a good inventory of ways to make a difference
