Has anyone talked about the hypocrisy of his BEZOS act coupled with this information?

That is, how does he reconcile his assertion that Amazon doesn't pay fulfillment workers a living wage while simultaneously leveraging this labor by selling Our Revolution and Where We Go From Here on Amazon? I imagine a substantial portion of his book income came from sales on Amazon.

u/Chartis · 17 pointsr/SandersForPresident

The last chapter of Bernie's book 'Our Revolution' is quite strong is telling this aspect. I encourage users to buy it from a local Mom & Pop if possible, or ask their library to bring in it if they don't already have it.

u/KopOut · 15 pointsr/Enough_Sanders_Spam

>Some interesting points, but I don't buy it. Bernie is working for a better America without his personal interests being much of a priority. He could have been feeling a bit entitled at one point being caught up in everything, but he's not there anymore.

You can even buy his new book to read all about it...

I saw this as a graphic in Bernie's book Our Revolution.

From the book on that page:

"It is not a coincidence that the decline of the American middle class virtually mirrors the rapid decline in union membership. As workers lose their seats at the negotiating table, the share of national income going to the middle-class workers has gone down, while the percentage of income going to the very wealthy has gone up. There is no question that one of the most significant reasons for the forty-year decline in the middle class is that the rights of workers to join together and bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions have been severely undermined."

What you do is buy a copy of Bernie's book - either Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in or his other book Bernie Sanders' Guide to a Political Revolution.

From there I followed the instructions on their Instagram page:

>Send your copy to the office with a note to Bernie and he will sign it. Please include a return envelope with postage paid. Use the media mail postage rate, its cheaper. Send it to Bernie's campaign office called Friends of Bernie Sanders to PO Box 391, Burlington, VT 05402. It takes a while for him to have time to sign, so please be patient, but he would be happy to sign it for you!

I sent my book in a box and included a 10 X 14.5in. self-addressed postage paid bubble envelope so that after Bernie signed it, they could return it to me. Also, it took about 2 and a half months for me to have the book sent back, so it will take a while. But it's worth it for a signed Bernie book if you ask me! <3

I read/listened to it. A lot of it is narrated by him and Mark Ruffalo (which is pretty cool too).

Now you're just talking out of your ass. Read his book. Read some articles. Bernie Sanders grew up with his brother in a Brooklyn rent-controlled tenement apartment where he and his brother slept in the living room because the apartment was so small. His father sold paint for a living. His mother died when he was a teenager; his father was dead by the time he was 21. All of his father's family, and some of his mother's were killed in the Holocaust.

Edit - here, I'll help you. Amazon has excerpts of his book https://www.amazon.com/Our-Revolution-Believe-Bernie-Sanders/dp/1250132924

That is precisely what he has been doing. It is the biggest reason he ran, and as an observer it was more important to him even than winning the last election. He made a point of saying whenever he stumped. He talks about a political revolution, a movement of young people getting involved in politics, constantly. And lots of people are running for positions all across the country because of it. Go to /r/political_revolution and see all the people he has inspired to run for office. Go to his movement's website, or read his book Our Revolution

He is focused on grooming successors for his ideology, so it's mind-boggling that you'd say he should as if he isn't.

u/eightdx · 3 pointsr/WikiLeaks

I never read the book,but here is a synopsis from the Amazon page:


In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all―and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on.

They also print his filibuster from 2010 in book form, which was all about corporate greed and the decline of the middle class.

I guess it depends on your definitions for words? I think he spent a lot of time addressing the systemic issues of which corruption is one. In the primary race, he tried to be tactful about invoking corruption in relation to the party and,uh, other candidates.

It's complicated?

u/ocean_spray · 2 pointsr/Political_Revolution

That seems to be the case:

EDIT: Amazon also has it for only $16 something instead of $27. -- $13 for the Kindle version.

I'm just about to place my pre-order and I thought of this:

Do others here know that Amazon offers a donation to your charity of choice? I chose Democracy Now! because they have such high quality reporting and interviews. You have to set it up and order EVERYTHING through AmazonSmile.com rather than Amazon's regular site. Some items you purchase are eligible for the donation and some are not. But, all must go through Smile. And, no, they don't tell you how much is being donated.

I order a lot from Amazon and figure some donation is better than nothing. I know they are terrible to workers, but most retailers are and until others deliver to my house I know I'll continue ordering.

Bernie's Book on AmazonSmile.com:

u/Rvb321 · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

I'm a big fan of the economist Richard Wolff and his podcast, Economic Update.

Some organizations to consider joining or supporting are
Democratic Socialists of America and Socialist Alternative.

I also encourage everyone to read Bernie's book, if you haven't already.

I would also highly recommend everyone read A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

Finally, I encourage everyone to watch the Noam Chomsky documentary, Requiem for The American Dream, on Netflix.

My article cited his cash advance on his “book” a book which although it retailed for $27, sold at an average price of $9.35 a copy:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/1250132924/ref=mw_dp_olp?ie=UTF8&condition=all

The sales on the ghost written book were lack luster, some 200,000 copies:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-made-1-million-2016-while-slamming-rich-people-campaign-trail-621131%3famp=1

This puts Bernie’s advance at a ridiculous 42% of sales.

A typical earnings out for a book is 10% of which 33% is paid as an advance and 11% on delivery with the remaining 66% paid out in royalties. This would be 1% on signing, 3.3% on delivery and 6.6% of royalties as a portion of total sales.

Bernie got 42% on signing.

Connect the despotic dots.

u/FrostyFoss · 1 pointr/television

Of course! That's just the cover price, real price is $16.

u/frby7resyg · 1 pointr/conspiracy

His book was released on November 15, 2016.

Because all politicians are bad it's okay that Bernie is the same?

If more people voted for Bernie, the DNC wouldn't've stolen the election? Bernie wouldn't've bent over for them and come out in support of Hilary?

The guy is a crooked tool just like the rest of them.

u/pplswar · 1 pointr/SocialDemocracy

I have both editions of the book and there's nothing in there (sadly) that is outdated. The Kindle or electronic edition of OR will be roughly the same price of Outsider in the House also.

u/today9142017 · 0 pointsr/CringeAnarchy

Excellent point. And I appreciate any allegory that uses fruit.

May I suggest some important offerings from some of the most prominent Socialists in the USA, Past and present. Good reading my friend.

He made $391,000 from the sale of his book "Our Revolution"


> “It was a bestseller, it sold all over the world, and we made money. So if anyone thinks I should apologise for writing a bestselling book, I’m sorry I’m not going to do it.”


How much did one of these books cost? between $7.73 and $10.00

So he either sold between 39,100 copies to 50,000 copies all over the world. And the fucking thing is 464 pages.


A moment of honesty...nobody but Bernie acolytes read this damn thing.


And he only paid a 23% effective tax rate. Sad.
