An old friend of Civitas, Max Borders, has launched a campaign to garner support for a crucial addition to the current conversation about envy and class warfare.
He’s written a book largely to counter the misguided and often belligerent assertions by the “Occupy Wall St.” crowd, and wants to fast-track its publication in order for it to have an impact on the hearts and minds of citizens in time to impact the 2012 elections.
You can check out the site for his book, entitled Superwealth, and consider pledging support and receive a copy of this book written by a talented, thoughtful, and passionate advocate for individual freedom.
As Max describes this book:
If The New York Times can trot out billionaires with guilt complexes, maybe someone out there will listen to a middle-class guy with a well-considered, well-researched case for why we should:
1. Stop worrying about The Gap,
2. Understand the true nature of wealth and poverty,
3. Stop demonizing the wealthy,
4. Focus on how best to help the poor, and
5. Learn to celebrate wealth creation.
With SUPERWEALTH, I have made an unapologetic case for the rich, their riches and the good they do in the world. I also offer some of their secrets on how they got that way… And who knows? I may get rich myself one day. It starts with abandoning legacy publishing. It all starts with you.
