Left-Winger's Surging Candidacy in UK Taps into Anti-Austerity Energy

Occupy UK, wait the 99% already do so why are the 1% running everything?

Exactly why Debs was jailed. Now , any thorn in the side of Capitalism is conveniently eliminated. Accidents happen.

Good luck, it is a lost cause with these people. The very last part of this article states that the man is running with Labor despite it being Blairite because it is the best way to success, but oh no some will not hear it that Bernie is doing the same. This notion that he is a Democrat is nonsense, it is his only way of being heard. Picture Bernie saying he will not support the ultimate nominee, another red herring tossed his way, if he did he wouldn't be invited to the debates. And so it goes.

Blair's credibility is as mystifying as that of the Bush Syndicate, apart from the fact that
millions vote for their slick sadism.

I've always admired Eugene Debs, but the speech you refer to contains a lot of partisan bull shit. In Britain at least, the upper classes have always done a disproportionate amount of the dying in their wars (especially WW1), relative to their numbers in the population. Those would be the children of the 1%. Check out the movie about Vera Brittain, which addresses this subject starkly.

Yep, I sure do.

"For his part, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair—whose reign saw the
Labour party dragged rightward and the country dragged into war—has
warned, "You don't win from a traditional leftist position."

The NZ Labour Party, the Australian Labour party and Tony Bliar's Labpour Partry have all demonstrated unequivocally since the mid-1980s that Bliarism is not a win for a decent caring society.

Keep in mind that if Bernie Sanders Agenda is implemented (removing special interest influence in government), the wars and military adventures will come to a crashing halt. You don't have to be a genius to connect the dots. However if Bernie just came out and said... "representative democracy will strangle the MIC", then his bid for the presidency would end immediately despite a populist message.
