'Galvanizing and uplifting' The Guardian
'Bernie Sanders has changed US politics forever' Owen Jones
It's OK to be angry about capitalism. It's OK to want something better. Bernie Sanders takes on the 1% and speaks blunt truths about a system that is fuelled by uncontrolled greed, and rigged against ordinary people. Where a handful of oligarchs have never had it so good, with more money than they could spend in a thousand lifetimes, and the vast majority struggle to survive. Where a decent standard of living for all seems like an impossible dream.
How can we accept an economic order that allows three billionaires to control more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we accept a political system that allows the super-rich to buy elections and politicians? How can we accept an energy system that rewards the fossil fuel corporations causing the climate crisis? How can we let it happen any longer? We must demand fundamental economic and political change. This is where the path forward begins.
It's OK To Be Angry About Capitalism presents a vision of what would be possible if the political revolution took place. If we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and work to create a society that provides them. This isn't some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it. Is it really too much to ask?
An attack on the status quo from every conceivable direction ... galvanising and uplifting ... Precisely because Sanders is such a straightforward thinker and writer, he insists on some facts that the political establishment - on both sides - wilfully ignores. * The Guardian *
I can't wait until everybody reads this book... it's like holding a little piece of hope in your hands. -- Emma Dabiri
Bernie Sanders opens his latest book with a compelling thought: conventional wisdom says you get more conservative in politics as you grow older, but he finds himself going the opposite direction. The 81-year-old writes exactly how he speaks - with passion and in his signature blunt style ... The book embodies Sanders' politics. -- Prudence Wade * The Independent *
Sanders lays forth a well-reasoned platform of programs to retool the American economy for greater equity ... the plutocrats might want to take cover. * Kirkus *
Our favorite democratic socialist ... Yes, it is okay to be angry about capitalism, and it's even better to do something about it. -- Yaseen Al-Sheikh * Jacobin *
A noble purpose ... a powerful new book. -- Charles Kaiser * The Guardian *
Reality keeps endorsing Bernie Sanders. Pass it on. -- Naomi Klein
A message of hope and courage - that collective action can rid the world of injustice. -- Owen Jones
Gives us a glimpse of what politics could be like. -- Yanis Varoufakis
Only Bernie Sanders can break the power of capitalism. -- Paul Mason
A decent, honest person. It's pretty unusual in the political system. -- Noam Chomsky
Sanders' success today shows that much of America is tired of rising inequality and these so-called political changes and intends to revive both a progressive agenda and the American tradition of egalitarianism. -- Thomas Piketty
