Incremental change isn't going to get the job done. We need a revolution.
Introductory note: We can get to the major nonviolent direct action described in very last link at bottom of this post, but first we need to start small. Make no mistake though: Just because actions are easy or small doesn't mean they can't create powerful shift in our country and the world. The small actions I'm about to describe are powerful, probably more powerful in the end than the action described in the link at bottom of this post.
The good news is that revolution has begun, but there's a way each of us can help increase the momentum and support exponentially. At first the method may seem deceptively simple but read on and check the links below, you may be rather surprised at the power you hold in your hands today to kick this puppy into high gear:
It's time for us to speak up in casual conversations in our daily lives and in more formal settings as individuals and in groups. It's time to say the emperor has no clothes. There is real power in this. It takes away the stigma of speaking up, makes it easier for others to speak their own minds. People already know the emperor has no clothes. Our revolution will slide into high gear when we, the millions, help them feel comfortable saying it out loud. This is our task. To embolden them. Once we do, we will have entered a virtuous cycle and there will be no stopping us. Check this out. . . HOW WE KICK REVOLUTION INTO HIGH GEAR AS INDIVIDUALS: http://occupywallst.org/forum/we-have-the-power-to-turn-this-world-around-this-o/ .
Also please visit this link to see how we can KICK THE REVOLTION INTO HIGH GEAR IN GROUPS and take it to an even higher level, past the tipping point: http://occupywallst.org/forum/we-dont-see-the-power-we-have-in-our-hands-to-tran/
In addition to the minor and major nonviolent direct actions discussed at thst last link, direct, we need to also act on our own. Every chance we get, in a strategic, calm and considerate way, we need to make it plain, in the most casual of conversation when the topic comes up. Having more and more and more people doing this IS the revolution because once we hit that virtuous cycle, we will discover that we have more in common than we have separating us.
Once we discover that, we Americans will be able to make decisions from a position of unified strength instead of demands from a position of divided weakness.

We have the power in our hands right now to do this:
