“Young people are the future of our country”
As the Democratic Party’s internal wrangling among the Obama, Clinton, and Bernie circles picks up steam, Bernie Sanders is releasing a handy-dandy handbook for teens interested in engaging in his socialist “political revolution.”
Teen Vogue began pushing Bernie’s latest attempt to spread his “political revolution” to teens back in May. Teen Vogue, it should be noted, has recently published articles that provide for teenagers a “how to” on anal sex, explain that opposition to Sharia Law is “hate speech,” and deride the Bible as “fake news.”
Teen Vogue first reported about Bernie’s teen manifesto, due to be released on August 29, back in May:
If you’re still feeling the Bern months after the presidential election, now’s the time to get your latest Bernie Sanders fix: The Vermont senator is coming out with a book this summer geared specifically towards teaching young people the ins and outs of political organizing and change-making.
Titled The Bernie Sanders Guide To Political Revolution, Sanders’ book is a one-stop shop for teenagers hoping to learn more about progressive causes and how to mobilize around key issues they care about. The book features helpful infographics and illustrations in the hopes of breaking down complex issues like income inequality, climate change, healthcare, law enforcement reform, prison system reform and student loan debt so that students know what they’re up against and how best to tackle these problems.
What does Sanders hope young people get from the book? He wants to help them understand how current government structure works, show them how to create change that reflects their values, inspire them to organize around causes they care about and introduce them to other resources to propel their work forward.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) 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.
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.
It’s not yet clear if this new Bernie book is intended to compete with Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, but here’s what Amazon has to say about it:
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.
