A manifesto that outlines the progressive vision, recent history and worldview—by the founder of The Young Turks and co-founder of Justice Democrats.
Right now, the shelves are filled with books on Donald Trump, as if everything was just hunky dory before the orange buffoon took over. Well, it wasn’t. What ails America goes far beyond Trump, but don't worry—progressives are going to take over the country and America is going to love it. In fact, in many ways we already have.
In Justice Is Coming, The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur presents two central ideas that counter everything we hear from pundits and politicians on a daily basis: one, progressives are correct on all of the issues, and two, America is actually a very progressive country. Millions of us know that we are not isolated individuals—we are a part of something larger, a movement that is already transforming Washington.
This compulsively readable manifesto seeks to apply the momentum we have already built to a concrete progressive agenda that activists, voters, and citizens can all rally around. It looks beyond Trump to the larger historical forces that have given us this unique political moment, and explains why we should fight, how we should fight, and how we can—and will—win.
Look out, Washington. We are building an army. This book is our battle plan.
