The point here is that Bernie Sanders is the necessary choice for the US to survive. No he is not a socialist and not even a social democrat. But the common good must be our total focus. We have no choice now.

The freedom to indulge selfishness and greed is the immature world of youth with freedom from responsibility. The US has led a hundred years of artificially protracted childhood dreaming. Those who were able to win and hoard the largest piles of childish treasures don’t want to stop. But reality descends and we must take responsibility for all life on this planet.

With, now, proven broad popular support Bernie Sanders can begin the transformation of American society to maturity. This is essential as most people clearly understand. We have plundered and wasted ourselves to the beginnings of oblivion. Public ownership to ensure equitable well being can no longer be delayed.

We must leave behind childish ways. Sanders is now the first step on the road to survival and hope.
