Bernie Sanders’ Un-democratic Democratic “Socialism”

I’m personally not opposed to multitasking a revolution, that is to say: to using evolutionary and revolutionary means simultaneously in the pursuit of well defined goals, and based on a brutally honest assessments of the current and global, neoliberal/neoconservative, status quo.

“G” Stands for Greece, Greed, Globalization (of Poverty) – And Blowback.

While reading this insightful overview of the complex Greek drama – seen thorough the eyes of what I would describe as a reality grounded Marxist economist, and Greek PM with SYRIZA – I found myself generalizing the particulars with a bias towards America’s own political-economic, real unreality.
