He is an economic warrior who appears to believe that economic justice will fix all the problems in our society.


I don't believe that Bernie thinks that economic justice will fix all the problems in our society ... just those problems faced by his base, i.e., mostly white males, while making the poor of every other group, a little better off through trickle down.

Racism was not created by the 1%, and neither was sexism.


This point will garner a lot of argument among the self-interested, pseudo-students of history, that is DU. For them, it is divide and conquer ... as if there was ever a time when the working-class factions were united.
