Economic Royalists vs Berine
In his speech, Sen, Sanders has spelled out, in clear, precise terms and descriptions the conflict between narcissistic, Ayn Rand, objectivism behind the ‘Free Market’ ‘greed is good’ capitalism and the ‘we are all living on this planet’ so let us do what is necessary for us to survive socialism. Something along the lines of “for ourselves and our posterity” as is found in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution.
FDR “in his speech accepting the Democratic nomination for a second term, delivered at Philadelphia on 27 June 1936, said, “The economic royalists complain that we seek to overthrow the institutions of America. What they really complain of is that we seek to take away their power. Our allegiance to American institutions requires the overthrow of this kind of power.” He was referring to persons prominent in finance and industry who in general opposed his tendency to centralize the government and to put it into competition with private enterprise.”
This is still today’s fight. Since Ronald Regan, the monied elite, the “economic royalists” have been spending vast sums of money to ensure that they maintain their privileges, provided by paid-for politicians, pundits and sycophants, and simultaneously insure that the voting public not interfere with the status quo. Sanders is not calling out ‘just’ the GOP, but the members of the ‘I’ve got mine, so screw you’ class which includes most of the members if the meritorious class.
What can be done? What are we supposed to do?
EVERYONE who is eligible MUST VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES.
NOT VOTING IS A VIRTUAL VOTE FOR THE STATUS QUO!
