We the people have to get busy

Continuing from this post, more from People Get Ready. If we don't get off our asses and get involved it won't get done:

"The people who dominate the political economy at present are determined to use their considerable resources and influence to prevent the development and expansion of democratic infrastructure. Indeed, at many turns they consciously seek the actual destruction of that infrastructure. [...] Furthermore, the present rulers have spent the last forty years trying to convince everyone the becoming part of an aroused and engaged and organized citizenry is unnecessary and a waste of time. [...] The humane and effective solution to the economic crisis requires that (1) the political system be rejuvenated into a powerful democratic infrastructure and (2) draws people into public policy debates as effective participants" (206-07).
