This book is loaded with a wealth of information. The author was passionate about the message of why poverty still exists and ways to overcome it. Reading this novel was so relatable to how times are now as compared to the past. It puts all of the lawmakers “on blast”, exposing them for their hypocritical ways. In a nutshell, the same politicians that we elect into office to work for the people are basically working for themselves to enhance financial gain and status quo. Time is way overdue for morals and standards to overcome worldwide poverty.
The author utilized many quotes relating to his point of views. However, the one that stood out to me the most was, “There must always be a remedy for wrong and injustice if we only know how to find it.”---Ida B. Wells. Elected officials could find solutions and change. It’s evident that the past catches up to the present when lawmakers become too comfortable with how things are; even when it’s hurting the exact reason that they are sworn into office, the people. Is there really any hope for the future for those in need? This author definitely leads your mind to wonder how things could be if opened to change.
It would be cool to see this work as a class text.
