Again, I agree with everything you say, malokvale77

The country, and the world, have reached a brink that will require either a fairly abrupt about face (return to the FDR vision via Bernie) or an extreme, paradigm-shattering breakthrough of some sort to pull humanity through this potential catastrophe and return us to a safer, more sustainable coexistence with each other and our surroundings.

Our generation tried hard, back in the day, to make the world a better place, but few if any of us could see where it was heading. IMO, a lot of this happened by stealth in the 1980s, 90s, a fundamental economic and power shift with widespread, devastating consequences. What we have of great value is the memory, the experience, of life before it happened. The millennials, who will have to find a way to save themselves and their progeny, don't have our memories, our sense of what went wrong, and that is one of the ways we can offer them guidance and support.

Yes, Hillary shows no intention of dismantling a system which she has happily appropriated for her own benefit and no vision for where we need to go. If Bernie hadn't stepped forward, I strongly believe we would be heading inexorably toward violent confrontation and upheaval.

Our window of opportunity is so narrow -- just a few months -- and the forces on the other side are trying so hard to close it. If they succeed in stopping Bernie, then I hope the movement he sparked will be able to organize itself and continue on a mass scale. Again, they would need whatever help we can give them while we're still around.
