About the Book.
A new generation of American socialists have sprouted, drawing from the ideas of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign and beyond. Today, more young people support socialism than any time since the labor movement of the 1920s, the Democratic Socialists of America exceeding 50,000 members nationwide.
Should we be concerned for our country when young, unaccustomed politicians assume office, like 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Or, should we look forward to our brilliant socialist future?
Robinson gives readers the base of twenty-first century socialism and why everyone should want to take part in this thrilling new chapter of American politics. He encourages both liberals and conservatives to make an effort to understand the true nature of socialist thought, whether they agree with it or not.
WHY YOU SHOULD BE A SOCIALIST is honest, compelling, engaging and powerful, successful in convincing even the most apprehensive readers of the benefits of socialist ideology. We look forward to discussing it with you in the weeks to come.
