While they are right on many accounts...Socialism is not the answer. History has shown that when communists rule, it turns into a dictatorship of psychopaths and millions have died. When socialists rule under the guise of equality the same ruling class live in luxury while half the country is under the thumb of 40% taxation and the other half of the country cannot get out out from under the thumb of government assistance...Socialism is the new slavery.
What needs to be done is to ring in the crony capitalism and corporatism and return to a free market capitalist republic.

Bernie Sanders is part of the 1%, so his claim is kind of interesting from that regard. But it also shows he's talking nonsense. He's trying to vilify part of the population to get your support. Typical populist BS. It's the same thing Hitler did with the Jews. The Jews were essentially the 1% in Germany, successful for a variety of reasons, including their cohesiveness and native intelligence, for two. They set themselves apart from the "Gentiles" and became easy targets for people suffering under a depression. The Jews were "different" and that's what Bernie Sanders is saying about the 1%. Their brains are different. Once the Jews became the "enemy of the people" it did not take much of a leap to decide they all had to be exterminated.
That's where you're headed with Bernie Sanders. I'm sure he would be horrified at the thought, but that's how it starts. He creates an enemy for all of you disaffected people to hate and says it's all their fault.
And you respond like sheeple.

Money is meaningless to dynastic pseudo royalty compared to social structure and power.
