New. 1416590560 Review "Give Me Liberty is a splendid introduction to the historical meaning of American citizenship--and the challenge of sustaining its promise in a new century."--Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University "[A] primer on how to become a citizen activist"--Suki Casanave, The Washington Post "A passionate, practical guidebook to reclaiming and reinvigorating participatory democracy."--Dennis J. Seese, Library Journal Product Description As the practice of democracy becomes a lost art, Americans are increasingly desperate for a restored nation. Many have a general sense that the "system" is in disorder--if not on the road to functional collapse. But though it is easy to identify our political problems, the solutions are not always as clear. In Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries, bestselling author Naomi Wolf illustrates the breathtaking changes that can take place when ordinary citizens engage in the democratic system the way the founders intended and tells how to use that system, right now, to change your life, your community, and ultimately, the nation.

The title "Give Me Liberty", is taken from Thomas Paine's "Common Sense". Paine's writing suggested a world with right to property, right to freedom, right to privacy, etc.. This lady is the exact opposite. She does not want freedom, she wants the government to run our lives as the book suggests. This book should be titled, "I hate America, and want rights similar to prisoners".
