A straight message to Bernie Sanders
In his latest article in New York Times, Bernie Sanders concluded that the political revolution should be continued. He is right. In fact, the political revolution through the huge movement that he created, just begins. And, paradoxically, the Trump presidency may accelerate it, depending on whether Trump will expose his real face in his first term. A face which reveals that he is only a reserve of the establishment, in order to maintain power.
In previous article, it has been mentioned that “The establishment starts to sense the first cracks in its solid structure. But Bernie is only the appropriate tool. It's the American people who make the difference. No matter who will be elected eventually, the final countdown for the demolition of this brutal system has already started and it's irreversible. The question now is not if, but when it will collapse, and what this collapse will bring the day after. In any case, if people are truly united, they have nothing to fear.”
Yet, what Sanders fails to identify for the moment, is that the bipartisan establishment cannot be defeated from the inside.
At the beginning, Sanders correctly states that “It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr. Trump did so because they are sick and tired of the economic, political and media status quo.”, but then, he writes that “In the coming days, I will also provide a series of reforms to reinvigorate the Democratic Party. I believe strongly that the party must break loose from its corporate establishment ties and, once again, become a grass-roots party of working people, the elderly and the poor. We must open the doors of the party to welcome in the idealism and energy of young people and all Americans who are fighting for economic, social, racial and environmental justice.”
As pointed previously:
... what these Leftist leaders don't seem to realize, is that the global neoliberal monster can't be defeated from the inside. If anyone attempts to do this, he will be gradually assimilated by its powerful network. We saw this already in Greece. After Tsipras surrendered to the European Financial Dictatorship, his party split losing its most radical elements, exactly as planned by the bureaufascists. Iglesias in Spain didn't manage to increase power, despite the coalition with the Left. Corbyn is already being threatened without even giving a single fight and Sanders capitulated without even attempting to create a third, purely anti-establishment pole, despite all the momentum by millions of Americans. Well, they should start wondering why they can't persuade anymore and why they are got trapped in this stagnating situation where the neoliberal monster is ready to swallow them. They should listen to millions of voices around the globe saying 'this is not the Left we want'. We need a completely autonomous Left with its own agenda, ready to fight against both the two monsters of the neoliberal establishment and the Far-Right.
So, the Democratic party cannot be transformed to serve clearly the interests of the majority of the American people because IT IS part of the economic, political and media status quo that Bernie writes about.
Decades of corruption through a 'love affair' with the bankers and the corporate lobbyists, made both the Democratic party and the Republican party fundamental components of the establishment's evil mechanism. The mechanism that produces constantly more inequality, more profits for the banking parasites, more poverty for the majority of the American people, more dirty wars with endless deaths, refugees, failed states, complete destruction.
People have been tricked so many times in the past and therefore, naturally, they have completely lost trust to the political duopoly. They have been tricked one more time with the Trump manipulator. Once they will realize that they are victims of one more fraud, the mass movement will be ready to erupt and create an unprecedented political revolution. But it needs to be done out of the bipartisan dictatorship, through the unification of all the available forces of the Left.
Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders represent exactly the same vision about a different America. There is no time and "luxury" for division between the Leftist forces. It is time for them to unite and offer a real prospect to the Sanders movement, so that to find the suitable environment to grow further over the next four years and become ready to take the power.
So, our clear message to Bernie is this: join forces with the Greens, otherwise there will be no political revolution!
