"The Middle and Working Class Manifesto" by Rev. Paul J. Bern. Written in a journalistic, expose' style, this nonfiction book chronicles the ongoing demise of the US middle class and what pastor Bern calls, "the ticking time bomb of inequality". This prophetic 2011 book predicted the American people's demand for free health care, free higher education for everyone without qualification, and the need for a $15.00 per hour minimum wage. This Christian-based book is a must-read for everyone who thinks America is headed in the wrong direction. Before there was the Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign and Occupy Wall St., before "the 99%" and Anonymous, before Ferguson, Mo. And Freddy Gray, before Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, before the 'Arab Spring', Syria and Palestine, there was this book, the book that helped inspire it all!
