Do We Really Want Democracy?
As Bulworth puts it, “Lemme hear that dirty word: socialism!” Bernie Sanders is a bit more specific (h/t Thor Benson at TNR):
I think [democratic socialism] means the government has got to play a very important role in making sure that as a right of citizenship all of our people have healthcare; that as a right, all of our kids, regardless of income, have quality childcare, are able to go to college without going deeply into debt; that it means we do not allow large corporations and moneyed interests to destroy our environment; that we create a government in which it is not dominated by big money interest. I mean, to me, it means democracy, frankly. That’s all it means.
