May it be beautiful before me.
May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.
May it be beautiful above me.
May it be beautiful all around me.

Above and below me hovers the beautiful
I am surrounded by it
I am immersed in it

The mountains, I become part of it
The herbs, the fir tree, I become part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters,
I become part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen
I become part of it.

From the doorway of rainbow,
The path out of which is the rainbow,
The rainbow passed out with me,
The rainbow rose up with me.
Through the middle of broad fields,
The rainbow returned with me

With the rainbow hanging high over your head, come to us soaring.

With beauty before me
With beauty behind me
With beauty above me
With beauty below me
With beauty all around me

It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.

Bernie Sanders' new book, It's OK to Be Angry About Capitalism, is coming in February.

By Jessie Gaynor
November 17, 2022

According to Crown, the book, Sanders’ sixth, will be both an assessment of the disaster of our current levels of wealth inequality, and a call to action.

In It’s OK to Be Angry About Capitalism, Sanders argues that unfettered capitalism is creating an unprecedented level of income and wealth inequality, is undermining our democracy, and is leading to the destruction of our planet. How can we accept an economic order that allows three billionaires to own more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we accept a political system that allows the very rich to buy elections and politicians? How can we accept an energy system that rewards fossil fuel corporations that are causing the climate crisis?

And yet, there is a path forward. Sanders presents a vision of what would be possible if the political revolution were to occur, if we recognize that economic rights are human rights and work to create a society that provides a decent standard of living for all.

Bernie: You're not powerless.

Nov 6, 2022
What the establishment says to you is that you are powerless. Let's prove them wrong. Let’s transform this country.

The crowd was too big at the University of Michigan tonight. 1200+ We had to have an overflow room

THANK YOU to the more than 1200 people who joined us tonight in Ann Arbor. The future of this country depends, to a large degree, on
whether young people stand united and take on the greed of the ruling class to create a future that works for all — not just the few.

Bernie: The path ahead.

What this moment in American political life is about is which way we will go. Do we rip each other apart? Do we have working class people fighting with each other? Or do we stand together?

THANK YOU to the 3,000+ people who joined us today in Eugene, Oregon! If we come out and vote in HUGE numbers in these midterm elections, make no mistake — YES — we can take on the billionaire class and the forces of corporate greed to finally build an economy for all.
