The Tipping Point: When Do Americans Hit the Streets?

By Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall

"In my experience, the first step in reducing our susceptibility to this pro-corporate messaging is making a conscious decision to increase our level of civic engagement -- even in activities that aren't overtly political, such as Girl Scouts, Rotary and Lions Club. In getting to know our neighbors and joining community groups, we model (the most powerful teaching tool) and inspire family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers to do likewise. The idea is to disrupt Americans' individualized relationship with their TVs, Computers, Ipods and Androids and get them to interact with each other instead."
