Bernie Sanders writing teen guide to political revolution

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.

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.

In the guide’s forward, Sanders praises the current generation of young Americans as the most tolerant and intelligent in history.

“The current generation of young people is the smartest, most idealistic, and least prejudiced generation in the modern history of the United States,” Sanders writes. “This is a generation that is prepared to think big and move this country in a very different direction than we have been traveling for years.”
