"Our current capitalist-driven inequalities will only be rectified when people realize that a strong community makes successful individuals, not the other way around." Paul Buchheit discusses the few ways we would benefit with a social democracy.
The U.S. is in desperate need of a revolution in order to restore the nation’s democracy and if Bernie Sanders is elected president this very well might happen. “This government is so thoroughly controlled by special interest campaign funding, so inept and dysfunctional, that it needs to be completely overhauled.”
Bernie Sanders, by any classic measure, is a lousy socialist who should jettison this inflammatory, injurious misnomer. Does embracing “socialism” -- an open-ended, domestic land mine -- not diminish his brilliant career, his growing national esteem and jaw-dropping campaign explosion? If winning the nomination is the goal, then why deliver a flaming torch to every scornful interviewer, partisan Republican, or Hillary defender so they can light up the night sky?
“We can have huge wealth in the hands of a relatively few people or we can have a democracy. But we can’t have both.” We need to get big money out of politics.
