Have activists taken the bumper-sticker adage "Think Globally, Act Locally" too literally? The author of this text, Randy Shaw, argues that they have, with destructive consequences for America. Since the 1970s, activist participation in national struggles has steadily given way to a nearly exclusive focus on local issues. America's political and corporate elite has succeeded in controlling the national agenda, while their adversaries - the citizen activists and organizations who spent decades building federal programmes to reflect the country's progressive ideals - increasingly bypass national fights. The result has been not only the dismantling of hard-won federal programs but also the sabotaging of local agendas and community institutions by decisions made in the national arena. Shaw urges activists and their organizations to implement a "new national activism" by channelling energy from closely knit local groups into broader causes. Such activism enables locally oriented activists to shape America's future and work on national fights without travelling to Washington, DC, but instead working in their own backyards.
