You write: "What they [19th C. Transcendentalists] don’t tell us is, how that happens."

But they do. Thoreau is pretty explicit in "Civil Disobedience." Emerson's "Divinity School Address" is a call to action based on his Transcendentalist beliefs.

Philip Gura offers good insight into this question in his American Transcendentalism; see esp. the chapter titled "Self and Society," pp. 209 ff.
