15. I wonder how people who intentionally isolate and alienate themselves from the party ...

... actually expect to change or guide the party. It's like the goth-emo-kids who refuse to go to the prom because it's too "establishment", but they'll stand outside the gym and complain that they can't hear the music inside, and can't understand why the band won't take their requests.

It doesn't matter who leads the movement nearly as much as the involvement of people who support the goals voiced by Bernie and others.

I agree.

The eagerness of the establishment and MSM to pronounce Bernie's revolution dead and to bury it with haste is premature as all hell.

Not if you listen to, and believe, those voices who are "never voting again" and who "quit the party" (yadda-yadda-yadda).
