Definitely not my book, but I can highly recommend the Essential Bernie Saners and His Vision to America to all Bernie supporters. It's an excellent, really well-written book, and it's especially great for people who like having conversations with others about Bernie. Reading this will boost your knowledge and help you discuss Bernie's vision with others.

Best of all, you can pick it up for $10 on Amazon right now.

Big money is center to right; it prefers control and manipulation to ensure profit at the upper echelons of politics. The Democratic party wants to appear left leaning with social policy regarding gender and race, but in all other matters it is right of center. Center wouldn't even be bad if it protected a stable middle class, but that's not the case.

I just finished reading Clinton Cash. If you have any doubts about where the Democratic party is headed if she wins the election, read this book. It will give you a clear understanding why the Democratic party under Clinton will push for more fracking, the Keystone Pipeline, further uranium sales to Russia, strip mining and more war. And if you have any doubts at all about what will happen with affordable education, then the parts in the book describing the millions of dollars the Clintons have made with Sylvian/Laureat will help you understand that the very politicians who say they will help make education more affordable actually profit from it not being affordable.

So I'm not even sure the Democrats are centrist. They are right of center.

He wishes to help regulate, that's part of his job. He would likely want to pay more taxes as well, but that doesn't mean he's going to donate to the government before legislation is passed. It's reasonable for legislators to patronize companies they wish to regulate. His Senate office isn't involved in the Amazon book deals. Good for him for standing up for what's right even though the company helps him sell books.

Here's what you can do:
Step 1: Go to your local library's contact page (now is a good time).
Step 2: Contact them and ask them to order copies of:

> Where Do We Go From Here ISBN 978-1250163264 [to be released Nov 13^th]
An Outsider in the White House ISBN 978-1784784188
> [Our Revolution]( ISBN 978-1250132925
The Speech: On Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class ISBN 978-1568585536
> * Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution ISBN 978-1250138903

Step 3: Smile that public funds are supporting the political revolution and disseminating our message.
Step 4: Pass on the idea if you think it worthwhile.
Step 5: Lean into standing up, exercising your voice, and fighting for what you believe in.

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.

u/cringris · 4 pointsr/SandersForPresident

All well and good to accuse people of being shills, but that doesn't make them wrong. Silver and Enten have both addressed why the missed on trump several times. As I'm sure you would agree that a lot was different this election. Most notably divergence from traditionally held ideas about primary contests and the effect of party elites. Even in this year at least on the dem side Endorsements turned out to be a pretty good predictor.

u/magnumdb · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Not so much. They've been voting against their own interests forever. This was to be expected to happen again. Why do they vote against their own interests? Read this book:

What's the Matter with Kansas?: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America

u/NeverHillary_2016_ · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Not being patronizing by saying you might not know Hillary well but here are some resources you might enjoy if you haven't seen/read them. After taking them in tell me if you still think Trump is more scary than the Clintons:

  1. Clinton Cash
  2. No One Left To Lie To

    There are many more but the Clintons and Hillary must be stopped. They turned politics into pay-to-play cesspool and it isn't acceptable. Also I think the TPP ends the sovereignty of all member countries and will never vote for someone who supports it.

    I love Jill Stein and I wish I would have been sending her money instead of Bernie.
u/Compuwiz85 · 4 pointsr/SandersForPresident

There's this book that was written in the 90's about our generation. It's called The 4th Turning. You might be interested in the theory that generational behaviors follow circadian rhythms and that we may in fact BE an echo of the Greatest Generation, or at least in the same position in the cycle. Check it out!

u/pandamander · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

The free market is only free if government regulation keeps it a level playing field for all comers. Teddy Roosevelt and FDR both saved capitalism when inequality and rigged monopolist markets risked everything. Bernie will do the same.

See Robert Reich's Saving Capitalism -

u/innociv · 5 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Welp. I was pretty against him for the longest time. I never liked the whole "good politician = good liar" thing. I never understood how democrats would blindly defend Bill Clinton like they do. He was just Republican-lite. The only thing worse than another Clinton to me is another Bush. Good book, by the way.

u/melroseartist · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

This is why Trump could win... he will dig up every bit of dirt and most of it is true....I had never read this book but I've been listening to "Hitch" online a lot lately... sadly he is no longer with us but he was super well respected (google his credentials) and his investigative journalism lives on...

u/TonyArnold2 · 13 pointsr/SandersForPresident

For context, the author of this article, Thomas Piketty, is one of the most prominent and influential left-wing economists in the world. His book, Capital in the 21st Century, was extremely well-received.

u/SernyRanders · 13 pointsr/SandersForPresident

A book recommendation on a sad day for democracy:
>With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful

>- Glenn Greenwald

u/PescespadaIsland · 6 pointsr/SandersForPresident

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

u/Sanders4WH · 4 pointsr/SandersForPresident

I would recommend a couple pieces of media to you. One is a movie and one is a book. The movie is 'Inequality for All'. I think you can watch it here:

I also recommend the book 'Saving Capitalism' by Robert Reich. You can get that here:

u/Q-01 · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Hi, u/Jkirk3279,

Thanks for your response. I'm going to try to go point by point and address your concerns.


> You’re demented. You believe these Conspiracy Theories

The fact that the U.S. has shifted toward a financial oligarchy is not a “demented” conspiracy theory. It is the professional opinion of many economists and political scientists. And their conclusions are backed up by data. A recent co-study by political scientists at Princeton and Northwestern University confirmed it:

And here are a few other sources which cover this topic well I think:








    > you ALSO believe that a minority unable to get enough votes to nominate their candidate can "dismantle" the Democratic Party.

    I think I get what you’re saying here (but let me know if I’ve misinterpreted) — How can a group that wasn’t effective or powerful enough to win a convention believe they could be powerful enough to do an even more dramatic and seemingly more difficult task of dismantling a party? If you can’t do the little thing, how can you do the big thing?

    What I’ve suggested is sort of unknown territory, so I can’t say how things would shake out. But I can say two things.

    a) We are not a tiny group. We’re close to half the party. More, if you count Independents. We don’t have to storm the capitol, stage a military coup, or do anything other than simply walk out en masse. If we walk away from the party, it loses half its constituency and either implodes, disbands, and re-forms quickly, or it limps along for a while as a very different party. It loses its reach. It becomes almost purely corporate, and loses much of its claims to authenticity. And given that the party has alienated and made feel unwelcome an entire generation of voters (well, really almost everyone under 40) – who were intended to eventually take the reins – it’s just a waiting game. It’s simple math. If you don’t replenish your numbers, you go extinct.

    b) This campaign has solidified a social network among groups that were not really connecting before. It has excited and engaged a huge number of people who were not participating in the past. It’s set up a social infrastructure that is not going to just disappear. This group, in the past, was a disparate and dejected wash of people. But as an energized and organized group – and one that has a distinct identity (“Not me, us”) – we are a considerable threat. If we aren’t courted HARD and incorporated into the party, we’re going to form our own. And we’ve already got many of the tools and voter data that we need.


    > You didn’t have enough votes to win at the State Convention, you claimed the Democratic Party cheated you

    If you'd like to debate any of the individual points presented above by /u/duder9000 , I'd be happy to discuss. Which of them did you disagree with?


    > and now you’re predicting BOMBINGS.

    I’m not suggesting that someone is going to bomb the convention in November. What I am saying is that if the Party continues to take obvious moves to silence and stop us… riots seem like a predictable eventual result. And at that point, the Party could respond one of two ways — either backing down, opening up the circle, and saying “OK, let’s listen to their concerns and see how we can win them back” (de-escalating) or by digging in and cracking down harder (escalating). If they respond to riots with escalating actions, I’m simply suggesting that the tension and responses would escalate.



    Given that you’ve come to a Sanders-specific sub-reddit, made zero attempts in your post to establish any common ground or connect on any level, but simply to insult me and say, in essence, “You’re so stupid and insane on every level and we won’t ever agree” — I’m just trying to figure out what you’re trying to do?

    Did you come here to insult a group of people thinking that would change their minds? Did you know that you wouldn’t change minds (so didn’t attempt to establish any credibility or kudos or ethos with us), but just decided that you would get some pleasure purely out of the act of hurling insults, regardless of its uselessness? Are you here because you’re being paid as a employee of the Clinton campaign’s Correct the Record group and you’re at work? Are you just a troll? What’s your goal? Why are you here? I know that it's really unlikely that you'll respond sincerely, but, I figure it's at least worth a try.

u/Listen2Hedges · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

That’s not surprising. Propaganda works. There’s a book you might want to check out called Manufacturing Consent that explains why the media pushes certain ideas even if those ideas are lies. The book was written in the 80s but it’s just as true today as it was then.

u/jjhardwork · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

Unfortunately her trustworthiness is so low that no one believes her. As Christopher Hitchens pointed out on his book on Bill Clinton: There is No one left to lie to. The whole world knows a penny is worth more than a promise from a Clinton.

u/apothanasia · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

The filibuster book is kind of a ramble, obviously.

Reich's Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few is pretty devastating and echoes many of Bernie's themes. The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future by Joseph Stiglitz is good too. And Tony Judt's Ill Fares the Land.

u/BrightBlueSea · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

I just finished Outsider in the White House. It's not a auto-bio, but a memoir of his multiple campaign efforts - failures and success - and how he learned to govern and legislate in toxic evironments. I'm recommending as it illustrates how he gets things done.

u/bunnylover726 · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

I keep giving away my Bernie books to people who are on the fence then buying new ones. Expensive, but so far effective (The last one I gave was to a lifetime Republican who read it cover to cover actually).

u/glabius · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

If you really want to know, read "The New Jim Crow" it explains the phenomena rather eloquently.

u/eldergias · 11 pointsr/SandersForPresident

I wasn't aware that you could use tax dollars to buy books on Amazon. Could you please tell me how you go about doing that? Or do you have no idea what you are talking about?

u/reid8470 · 14 pointsr/SandersForPresident

The first book was titled "Outsider in the House", as in House of Representatives, published in 1998. You can look at it here:

"Outsider in the White House" is an update/modern version of "Outsider in the House", hence the word "White" added as if it were painted on... because he's now running for president. It's a new, abrupt stage in his life.

u/netizen539 · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

I think you need to read up on what Bernie is proposing and where his ideas come from. So as long as we're throwing around links to books.

u/randogo · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

This is the book Bernie is talking about, Outsider in the house.

u/sigmir · 8 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Hah! They did charge for this -- Sanders later published the full text of this particular speech as a book

u/ddp · 5 pointsr/SandersForPresident

That was right out of Manufacturing Consent last night, if you ask me.

u/BernieOrTrump2016 · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Watching this as I type this. Though they had me at Christopher Hitchens. Have you read No one left to lie to?

u/AuthorOfTheFuture · 3 pointsr/SandersForPresident

In his new book Bernie defines Socialism as

"A central government controls the production and distribution of goods to establish an equitable distribution of labor and property."

u/Wagnerian · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

Michelle Alexander, author of 'The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness' -
>If anyone doubts that the mainstream media fails to tell the truth about our political system (and its true winners and losers), the spectacle of large majorities of black folks supporting Hillary Clinton in the primary races ought to be proof enough. I can't believe Hillary would be coasting into the primaries with her current margin of black support if most people knew how much damage the Clintons have done - the millions of families that were destroyed the last time they were in the White House thanks to their boastful embrace of the mass incarceration machine and their total capitulation to the right-wing narrative on race, crime, welfare and taxes. There's so much more to say on this topic and it's a shame that more people aren't saying it. I think it's time we have that conversation.

u/CSKemal · 15 pointsr/SandersForPresident

He had an entire book

No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton

u/upstateman · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

And in the beginning of this cycle endorsements was considered a major factor. The book The Party Decides was much discussed and part of why people expected Bush to walk away with the election. They were wrong, but wrong in hindsight does not mean it was a bad idea. And since that was the idea then Clinton's massive number of endorsements would have gotten plenty of media coverage. Rather than simply being a number buried it would have been story after story.

>Hence, I say bring on endorsements to the Democrats and expose more for not putting their beliefs into their actions. That will make it easier to get ALL corrupted politicians out (so we can dream).

I really have no idea what that means.

u/Always_Excited · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Yeah, it was Americans forcing Americans to stop slavery.

When I say America was great, in this instance I'm referring to Americans who were willing to fight their fellow Americans for what's right.

While there were many who were fooled into fighting for the wealthy's right to slavery, there were also idealistic men from the South, some sons of plantation owners, who enlisted in the Union because they believed that it was a cause worth dying for.

These people recognized evil, and despite being personal beneficiaries, they chose to fight against it, against their own family.

American history is littered with stories of brave men and women, who did not cave to the realities of their time, and continued to project what they wanted the world to be. Not everyone achieved their desired goal, but each one shines bright midst the darkness and barbarism of human history. They show us which way to go.

Failing to recognize the struggles of past progressives, and allowing conservatives to define everything, is how you end up with ignorant shit like 'slavery was a choice Kenya'.

u/PrestonPicus2016 · 6 pointsr/SandersForPresident

We have to make the government's actions public and keep our private lives private. It's terrifying to see what Glenn Greenwald uncovered:

Patriot Act goes too far, FISA courts have no real oversight capacity, the whole thing is a mess.

We have to start by applying the law. If you do something illegal, as the NSA did, as many of these agencies did, there have to be consequences. This is the problem with so much of our system: no consequences. Illegally spy on Americans? No consequence. Illegally kidnap and torture innocent people because you thought they were terrorists? No consequences.

Heck, even Dick Cheney, who was wrong about almost every single thing he did as VP, still gets to go on TV and sell himself as some kind of expert. It's amazing.

When these organizations break the law, someone besides the whistleblower has to go to jail.
