Now Is The Time … Maybe The Last Chance
There was a time when I would have eschewed the very notion of socialism. A time I didn’t understand the evil that humans are capable of. A time I thought that ‘right’ would win out over ‘might’. Over the years, the decades, the rose-coloured glasses have broken to pieces, and the naiveté eroded from my psyche. Today, I see the human species clearly as it is, and as such, a true democratic socialist state holds much appeal for me. Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has, in my view, all the right ideas for what this … or any nation … should be. Can we get there? Bernie thinks so. What follows is the column he wrote for publication in The Guardian on Wednesday … his words make a heck of a lot of sense, at least to me.
