Just as I have written, the Trump presidency is going to be an ideal time for socialist recruiting.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is writing a book for teens interested in progressive politics, called "Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution."
The book, designed as a how-to guide for students eager to begin work as political activists, is out on August 29th, The Guardian reported according to The Hill.
In a forward to the book, Sanders notes that he overwhelmingly won younger voters among all demographics during his 2016 bid for president.
Sanders also told Teen Vogue that the book will explain to a younger audience how to get involved with America's democratic system.
"Young people are the future of our country," Sanders told Teen Vogue. "As citizens of the United States, they have a responsibility to participate in our democracy and to help create a government which works for all, rather than just the few. This book will expose them to an unusual political campaign, the excitement of politics and what being a progressive is all about."
According to Teen Vogue, the book also includes dozens of infographics about issues like income equality and money in politics that Sanders made famous during his 2016 presidential bid.
From the blurb for the book:
In the Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution, Independent congressman, presidential candidate and activist Bernie Sanders continues his fight against the imbalances in the nation’s status quo, and shows you how to make a difference to effect the changes America―and the world―need to create a better tomorrow.
Throughout the Presidential campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders promised voters a future to believe in through his progressive platform and a vision for America worth fighting for. This vision calls for an economic, environmental, health care, and social justice revolution beyond the stagnant agendas of Democrat and Republican politicians to build an equitable future for all Americans―especially the younger generation that will inherit the consequences of decisions made now.
Inside this practical and inspiring guide to effecting change in today’s world, you’ll learn how to:
· Understand and navigate the current system of policy and government
· Work to change the system to reflect your values and to protect our society’s most vulnerable
· Organize for the causes you care about most
· Resources for further reading and organizations to get involved with
With more than two decades of Washington D.C. insider knowledge and experience, Senator Sanders knows how to fight and change the system from within, a system desperately in need of reform in health care, immigration, taxes, higher education, climate change, and criminal justice.
The political revolution is just beginning. What role will you play?
