According to Dr. Levine:
Many Americans are deeply demoralized by decades of oppression, and
they have lost confidence that genuine democracy is possible. Drawing
on phenomena such as learned helplessness, the abuse syndrome, and
other psychological principles and techniques for pacifying a
population, Levine explains how major US institutions have created
When such fatalism and defeatism set in, truths about social and
economic injustices are not enough to set people free.
However, the situation is not truly hopeless. History tells us that
for democratic movements to get off the ground, individuals must
recover self-respect, and a people must regain collective confidence
that they can succeed at eliminating top-down controls. Get Up, Stand
Up describes how we can recover dignity, confidence, and the energy to
do battle. That achievement fills in the missing piece that, until
now, has undermined so many efforts to energize genuine democracy.
