sanders-surrenderWith the crowning of Hillary Clinton at the DNC in Philadelphia, the 2016 election cycle appears to have come full circle.

It is what Lenin called capitalist “horror without end”—without end. Not only in “far away” Iraq, Afghanistan, and Mexico, but in some of the most prosperous cities in the richest country on earth.

Bernie Sanders - Micheal Vadon CC BY-SA 2.0On June 28, 2016, Bernie Sanders penned an op-ed piece in the New York Times titled “Democrats Need to Wake Up.” In it, he highlighted the following facts: the 62 richest people on planet earth own as much as the poorest 3.6 billion; the top 1% owns more than the bottom 99%, and the top one-tenth of 1% own almost as much as the bottom 90%.
