This is the most down to earth, common sense book I’ve on how to effect social justice in America. It describes the boring but hard work of organizing the left to work for and promote social change while accepting that this must be started within the political system we have. And it explains why we need to move away from elite identitarian ideologies obsessed with symbolism, language, influencers, academic jargon, and hierarchies of oppression, and focus on organizing collectively for real social change that most people would embrace if they only understood how it would benefit them.
