Bernie and BeyondPosted: October 3, 2015
Here’s a link to my 26 page paper, “Bernie and Beyond: A Socialist Perspective on the Sanders Campaign,” which concludes:
We might prefer that some other figure, such as Gloria La Riva of PSL or Jill Stein of the Green Party, were receiving the kind of mass support and media attention that Sanders has earned. But that is not a choice we get to make. In the real world, Sanders deserves socialist support in his campaign for the Democratic nomination and beyond. No one knows what a Sanders presidency would be like, but we all know what the usual suspects will give us.
