Book: We the People - a Call to Take Back America
Restoring Democracy... America faces its greatest threat since the Civil War. The worst fears of our forefathers are being realized as powerful corporate interests have taken over our culture and representative government. We the People now face a fundamental choice: take back our country ... or do nothing, and become victims of tyranny and empire.
"There's nothing childish or 'cartoonish' about the ideas, strategies, and analysis in this brilliant book. It should be available everywhere as a quick, accurate primer on what has gone wrong in our country...and what we might do to right the capsizing ship of State." -Peter Coyote, actor and author of "Sleeping Where I Fall."
"Thom Hartmann has done it again! He's like America's Civics Teacxher, telling us everything we need to know about what democracy really is, and how to protect it when threats abound." - Marianne Williamson, co-founder, Global Renaissance Alliance and author of "Healing the Soul of America" an d "Everyday Grace"
"We The People" is a deadly serious comic book that covers virtually all important issues facing Americans and the democracy under which we live, This is one of the most informative and authoritative socio-political analyses of our time. Its warnings and remedies should be taken to heart before the freedoms that we have taken for granted for so long shall be systematically stolen from us. You must read this book and urge others to read it." - Frederick Sweet in Intervention magazine
"This is a blockbuster of a book, a thoughtful and hghly provocative analysis of American political traditions and our current politica situation. An easy nd compelling read, it should be on everyone's reading list." - Ken R. Bain, PhD, historian and founding director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at New York University
"Pick up a copy - or ten - and give them to someone you know in junior high school, or a senior citizen, or a busy person who might appreciate an overview with cited sources that takes a surprisingly systemic look at our complex of problems and correspondingly sophisticated set of potential positive paths. The time they take - and the time they save with this entertaining and economical tour de force - may be reflected in the democracy we take back." - Tom Hastings, in The Peaceworker
