“Insightful and honest, this no-nonsense guide to tackling some of our biggest social problems is exactly what we need right now.”–Amy L. Best, Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, George Mason University
Changing the world is a skill. Right now, we’re bad at it…but we can learn how to be good at it.
That’s the powerful message at the heart of this transformational book. Deftly and accessibly pulling together decades of social science research, Dr. Lynn explains what we know about how to create social change—and what we’ll need to do to address our biggest problems today.
The result is a bold, inspiring—yet realistic—prescription for how to pull ourselves out of our current divisive, dysfunctional crisis…and get our society on track:
How we get in each other’s way as we work for social change—and how we can work more collaboratively.
How we can get millions—if not billions—of people of all backgrounds and beliefs united around a common cause.
How to avoid the power struggles, purity tests, and ideological bickering that hinder so many good causes.
How the people of the world can gain the upper hand over our feckless, corrupt governments and greedy, exploitative corporations.
Why the typical liberal, conservative, libertarian, and socialist prescriptions for reining in our major institutions are either wrong or incomplete.
The tactic nearly every single movement embraces in order to boost their numbers in the short term…that ultimately ends up crippling them in the long term.
The golden rule of successful social movement strategy, according to the guy who literally wrote the book on how to topple oppressive dictators.
The wide array of ethical, nonviolent techniques we can use to bring about positive change—and which ones are best for our current situation.
Why you absolutely should not, under any circumstances, imagine that you need to give up your most cherished beliefs—or bully other people into giving up theirs—in order to address our biggest problems.
How to talk to negative, stubborn, or closed-minded friends, acquaintances, and loved ones—so they won’t shut down or retreat even further into their own shell.
How to cultivate change in your own community that’s aligned with the big, global changes we need.
How to identify what you’re maximally capable of giving to changing the world—and how to give it without neglecting your other obligations, giving up all your free time, or burning out.
Why all our hopes for “change” have been dashed in recent years—and why you shouldn’t give up hope just yet.
There’s no magic formula for curing the world’s ills—but this book comes close. Whether you’re itching to get more involved or already struggling to make a difference, The Greatest Movement in Human History tells you everything you need to know to make the world a better place as quickly and effectively as humanly possible.
