Occupy Wall Street
Atlanta Author Releases 2nd Book on “Occupy” and “99%” Movements
This month is also the first anniversary of the publication of Paul J. Bern's groundbreaking first book, “The Middle and Working Class Manifesto”. This is the book that helped initialize and inspire the “Occupy” and “99%” Movements, and it correctly predicted the beginning of both these movements over two months before they occurred. The Manifesto was written after the author found himself forced out of the job market and out of the middle class 15 years before retirement age. It chronicles the ongoing demise of the US middle class, the unemployment and foreclosure crises, and what Mr. Bern calls, “the ticking time bomb of inequality”. It proposes a myriad of solutions, from ending the “war on drugs” to ending the wars overseas, and it demands free health care and higher education for everyone without qualification. This book is a must-read for anyone who thinks America is headed in the wrong direction.
