Who Says Progressives Don’t Like to Fight?
The Progressive’s Guide to Raising Hell will take you into the “no holds barred” world of activism and campaigning. Your guide is master tactician, consumer advocate and political street fighter Jamie Court. In his guide to raising hell, he’ll show you a simple method for winning any political battle of wills, by staying true to your values and using them to reveal the greed and arrogance of your opponents, be they politicians or multinational corporations.
Court, President of Consumer Watchdog, the enormously successful consumer advocacy organization based in California, is a longtime organizer of successful ballot campaigns and reform initiatives. In the book, he offers battle-proven, step-by-step directions to force and expose your opponent’s mistakes, and leverage public opinion in the direction of progressive change. Court provides real world examples like:
- Purchasing social security numbers of California’s governing bodies to show the need for privacy legislation;
- Going toe-to-toe with California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger;
- Taking on Google’s privacy policies, and winning;
The book’s release comes on the heels of the BP oil spill and just before the runup for midterm elections–perfect timing to enhance any discussion of populist rage, Obama’s failure to deliver, and how to make change happen every day. Court is raising the flag of direct democracy, providing us with the DIY blueprint for political change.
Progressive’s Guide takes the fight from closed doors and halls of power in Washington and brings it home to you. He believes it is in states and communities that true political successes can occur.
