Resistance is great but it’s not enough. Since 1971, there has been a very effective anti-democracy movement aimed at replacing it with plutocracy. Trump is but a symptom of this problem so solutions have to be much more than merely anti-Trump. Legendary author Frances Moore Lappe (Diet for a Small Planet) teams up with millennial political organizer Adam Eichen to publish Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want. The anti-democracy movement has had success at convincing Americans that government doesn’t matter,  we should just surrender all power to the “free” market. But democracy is about human dignity, the authors argue, and we are indeed winning. Many are learning that participating in change is invigorating!
