The class, in addressing citizenship in an age of corporate power, will cover a range of sub-topics including elections, activism, the commons, globalization, localization, climate change, public banking, the “new economy”, the rights of nature, and policy making. The class links to, supports, and is supported by the work of Paul Cienfuegos, Jim Hightower, Move to Amend, David Korten, the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, Democracy School, Global Exchange, Jim Tarbell, the Alliance for Democracy, and the many other people, programs, and institutions working to counter the anti-democratic elite and corporate forces at work in our government and economy.
The only prerequisite for this course is an open mind. There is a $25 facilities fee, payable to Mendocino College. Justice Rising: Grassroots Solutions to Corporate Rule, edited by Jim Tarbell and published by the Alliance for Democracy, will be the principal resource material. Other reading materials will be distributed at class.
