United Progressive Alumni : FYI - Continuing Education : Must-Reads



The Internet has and will allow information sharing like nothing else in history. But finding the most well-written and relevant documents is still difficult, even with search engines. Here then we'll be listing some of the articles, essays, and features that can best educate and inform us as activists.

Formal Consensus - A primer on perhaps the most democratic yet efficient decision-making system available. Progressives everywhere should read this before they build their organizations or projects. If you think democracy is about voting, prepare to be challenged.

The PR Industry's Secret War on Activists - An excerpt from the book "Toxic Sludge Is Good for You" by John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton. Few activists are aware of the dirty tricks and extraordinary lengths corporations and their public relations lackeys are willing to go to discredit and destroy progressive movements. Read this piece to know the enemy better - and in particular, to know how they plan to deal with you if you challenge them.
