Bernie Sanders on Resisting Trump, Why the Democratic Party is an “Absolute Failure” & More

I’m not going to get into the debate regarding whether radicals should abstain from voting and not participate in the political system. Shit has gotten way too serious and insane with Trump and the 1% controlling the power of the state. We can’t and shouldn’t hide behind notions of ideological purity as 25 million Americans lose health care and while the environment is pillaged. We have a moral obligation to try and ameliorate the worst aspects of Trump’s regime. If that means voting, then I’ll vote, anarchist ideals be damned. If that means supporting people or organizations that aren’t as far to the left as I’d like or people and organizations that aren’t overtly revolutionary, then I will. There’s just too much at stake to refuse to participate. It’s time to resist using any means necessary. So I present the following video with that in mind. If there’s ANYONE who might serve to cripple the 1%’s offensive and who can garner mass support, it’s Bernie Sanders.
