''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?


Review quote
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.
Review quote
Reality keeps endorsing Bernie Sanders. Pass it on.

A decent, honest person. It''s pretty unusual in the political system.
Review quote
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.
Biographical note
Bernie Sanders is serving his third term in the U.S. Senate and is the longest serving Independent member of Congress in American history. As Chairman of the Budget Committee, he helped write the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, one of the most significant pieces of legislation in modern American history. Now, as the newly-elected Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP), Sanders will be in an even stronger position to continue his leadership on the fight for Medicare for All, for combating climate change, and for making public colleges and universities tuition free.
