Summary
  • The Majority of Americans oppose the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and bristle at Wall Street bailouts, yet most remain passive and appear resigned to powerlessness. Why aren't we all out in the streets? In Get Up, Stand Up, Bruce Levine offers radical new insights into the epidemic of political passivity in America. Drawing on phenomena such as learned helplessness, the abuse syndrome, and other psychological principles and techniques for pacifying a population, Levine explains how major US institutions have created helplessness and fatalism. When such defeatism sets in, truths about economic injustices and lost liberties are not enough to set people free
  • The situation, however, is not truly hopeless. Get Up, Stand UP describes how we can recover dignity, energy, and unity in order to wrest power away from the corporatocracy. In other countries and during other periods of American history people have successfully resisted domination. Get Up, Stand Up details those, strategies and tactics that oppressed peoples have employed to gain power and put that power back in the hands of We the People
