It's OK to Be Angry About Capitalism
It's OK to Be Angry About Capitalism | Senator Bernie Sanders
3 posts | 6 read | 5 to read
A progressive takedown of the uber-capitalist status quo that has enriched millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the working class, and a blueprint for what transformational change would actually look like Its OK to be angry about capitalism. Reflecting on our turbulent times, Senator Bernie Sanders takes on the billionaire class and speaks blunt truths about our countrys failure to address the destructive nature of a system that is fueled by uncontrolled greed and rigidly committed to prioritizing corporate profits over the needs of ordinary Americans. Sanders argues that unfettered capitalism is to blame for an unprecedented level of income and wealth inequality, is undermining our democracy, and is destroying our planet. 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? Sanders believes that, in the face of these overwhelming challenges, the American people must ask tough questions about the systems that have failed us and demand fundamental economic and political change. This is where the path forward begins. Its OK to Be Angry About Capitalism presents a vision that extends beyond the promises of past campaigns to reveal what would be possible if the political revolution took place, if we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and if we would work to create a society that provides a decent standard of living for all. This isnt some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it.

F*** yeah Bernie! I am angry that I live in a country without universal healthcare, affordable childcare, affordable college tuition, etc. I do agree that the big money politicians in both parties have an interest in keeping the status quo with some things. Am I a social democrat? Sometimes probably. This is Bernie‘s story of the 2020 campaign and the first two years of Biden‘s presidency. He discusses many problems and some solutions.

JamieArc Love me some Bernie! I may have named my dog after him. Her name is Ladybird “Birdie” Sanders 😁 3w
Megabooks @JamieArc that is a fantastic name! 3w
Ann_Reads Awesome review! I was going to hold off reading the book until April, but decided to start reading it today. 3w

For those who have heard Bernie speak before (or read his other books) much of this will sound familiar. Still, his earnest hope and unapologetic honesty is exactly what‘s needed as we navigate these difficult times.

Bernie has a new book coming out. He offers his suggestions on what can be done.

batsy I read this brief interview with him last night. Love! https://nymag.com/intelligencer/article/bernie-sanders-new-book-its-ok-to-be-ang... 1mo
Suet624 @batsy that‘s a funny article… still didn‘t talk about the book! Hahaha. When I used to work for him I would remind him about Valentine‘s Day. He grumbled then about it too. 1mo
batsy @Suet624 "Why is Valentine's Day in the middle of the week?" ? 1mo

Ann_Reads @batsy Thanks for posting the link to that article. I enjoyed reading it.
@Suet624 Thanks for the information. I decided to order the book, as it sounds like this might be Bernie's last planned term in office. That thought makes me sad, as he is one of the few politicians I have any trust in and respect for.
Suet624 @Ann_Reads He‘s one of a kind, that‘s for sure. I have tremendous respect for him. 1mo
batsy @Ann_Reads My pleasure! I enjoyed it, too. Nice to get a glimpse of his personality. 4w
Suet624 @Ann_Reads @batsy. Because you‘ve mentioned his personality, I just have to add that he‘s very much a persnickety old grandpa (even before he became a grandpa) with a side of very rare humor. Not much of a conversationalist but very genuine in his concern for women, children, seniors, veterans and the poor. 💕 4w
batsy @Suet624 Yes! That aspect of him comes off really well in that short profile. But so glad to hear of his genuine care for the oppressed from someone who's worked with him 💜 4w
