      Free trade union federations in France, Italy, Germany, and elsewhere helped establish stable conditions for democracy and public support for the Marshall Plan in Western Europe at a time when Stalin was entrenching Soviet control in Eastern Europe and trying to undermine Western democracy.   DEMOCRACY AND DEMOGRAPHICS IN THE USA is a wakeup call and conscience-awakening book. It is a roadmap showing how Democrats can use the power of demographics to "Build Back Better" (Biden) on.

    The lands of Eastern Europe had been under the Domination of the German, Russian, and Austro-Hungarian governments until after World War One, at which point they became independent. These independent nations all tried democracy, hailed as the best system by which to introduce the principle of national self- determination to a fledgling nation.   If you read the speech, which can be found at h ttp:// /, you will see that Wilson was referring specifically to the fact that Germany was not a democratic country, that its attacks on unarmed merchant vessels bringing supplies to European countries at war would not have been possible had it been a democracy.

    Origins. After the autonomous Student League for Industrial Democracy merged with other groups to form the American Student Union in , the League for Industrial Democracy still tried to keep a campus presence. In the late s and early war years they organized summer institutes to educate students in union organizing and sponsored lecture tours by Joel Seidman and LeRoy Bower. Grassroots organizing builds community groups from scratch, developing new leadership where none existed and organizing the unorganized. It is a values based process where people are brought together to act in the interest of their communities and the common good. Networks of community organizations that employ this method and support local organizing groups include National People's Action.
