The book for the Occupy Movement and the 99%

A book that was published in 1943, but… “One chapter in particular might have been written in 2012, not 1943. Its title: “Political Action for the 99%.”

“Many of us have become cynical where politics is concerned. Corruption, class legislation and political irresponsibility no longer move us to indignation. Instead, we shrug our shoulders, as if to say, ‘What can you expect?’ This attitude threatens the whole democratic fabric of our country.

‘The people’s will must be made effective’

“Let there be no mistake: the political life of the country will be controlled, if not by the people, then by the vested interests. Indifference on our part is precisely the guarantee that special privilege will continue to rule. The people’s will must be made effective. To achieve this end, they must gain control of economic and political power.”

Prefer a novel? Here’s one, published in 2012, for the Occupy Movement, the 99percenters, and whistleblowers: WikiJustice.
