Toward theocracy

TS delivers passionate analysis of current rich v poor scene.

Chris Hedges saw the Sanders disaster/sell out coming, even said followers were being duped. You can't stage a political revolution from the Democratic party. If Clinton is the wrong woman to be our first female president, Sanders is the wrong figurehead for systemic change. He is socialism lite at best. He ran as a Democrat, which immediately put conditions on possible success.

Two interesting questions. Is systemic change possible without violence? Is handing the election to the right wing preferable to Clinton?

Another: do evangelicals outnumber progressives in the U.S.? If so, then where is the actual "revolution"?

My disagreement with TS is that his spectrum of "bad guys" is too narrow and includes probably most of the Berns as well, especially younger ones, who want a slice of the pie, not systemic worldwide change.

Observation: Nature will make political discussion irrelevant soon enough. The colonization of Mars is more significant than Sanders v Clinton v Trump v Cruz.

In today's world, old age rocks!
