No, he is not. He said so himself. Unless your version of the word "all the people" exclude certain groups, or that people above certain level of income is not considered actual people. Like, don't even try to argue it, I listen to enough of Bernie speech and the words came out of the man himself. While all Democrat are understandably going for it at some level, Bernie is the most aggressive and also - in your word -most consistent in portraying "the rich is the source of all of problem". If class warfare ever openly break out, he ain't gonna be a mediator to bring "all the people" together, he would be one of the very first to pick a certain side without hesitation.
And no, I'm not debating if that is right or wrong itself, no interest in that. I'm simply pointing out your version of "all the people" are as cherry picking as Trump's version of "all the people" - because hey he said it too! In fact I'm a bit allergic to things like "all the people", not because they are wrong. But because:
- How overuse it is. In fact, name me one candidate, pass or present that doesn't say something similar.
- How the people utter those words never honestly meant it. Trump surely doesn't mean "all the people" when he said it, and neither Bernie. In fact, they probably each refer to the other group that is left out by each otherin their respective version of "all the people".
Maybe we don't. But at the same time I see no reason why you or anyone else can claim they have more clue then us, and guess why, neither I think most American care. Even if you are right, who has the right to say we are wrong? In fact, the flaw of your argument is once again, you focus too much on the privilege being right and being wrong rather take things in its own context. To me that's a dead horse that had been beaten to zombie state in this thread. You are free to think of it what you will, you can be right and American can be wrong, but in the end the one who can decide that is the American, period. And you can say the samething to me if I go to YOUR country and start telling you what I think about it. The reason I only quote this one line is because it's the only one I think remotely related to what I said. The rest of the paragraph ... while pose valid question, I'm not exactly sure if they carry a related point?Well sorry but no. "the American people" has no clue, all it knows is what it is told and as I said before, you cant cop out with that since its a word in a established language and its meaning exists regardless of how you interpret it.
I said no matter what you think or want to call him - and I will refrain calling him a far left since that might not qualify per YOUR standard, but Bernie is the left most figure in American atm, and that fact alone means a lot. If you gonna issue a challenge to my argument, I would prefer to see one that directly address that notion.
And like I said, you are still -completely-missing-the-point. Just stop being so concern about right and wrong for a moment. Fine, let's just say you are right, that we American are dumb, we all should accept your wisdom of what better for us and voila happy tomorrow. You mention people are afraid of changes, of course there is that. But there is another factor when people talk about change that I think you often forget -given your history of posting- are people ready for change.
Consider this example: a patient is sick and need surgery. The surgeon and his team had identify the illness, and devise the procedure that will cure the patient. In this case just like I said, we gonna assume you are right in all what you said (so please don't beat on it again if you're gonna response to this post). But, even that, what is the ONE thing that every surgeon will have to consider before beginning any procedure, even if they are 101% confident is will cure the patient: Can the patient survive the procedure or not?
And that - is - my - point. Right now American is so bitterly divided in the same manner a patient who is too sick to receive a procedure. Maybe Bernie has the right idea, but right now if we try to push through it, there are so much bad will and resistance that I fear the result will be similar to how a procedure that would cure a patient would instead send him into a cardiac arrest in the middle of the operation in it. That's why I'm saying we need reconciliation first, we need to get out of the current obsessive, negative and toxic mindset before we can tackle changes in no different manner that an extremely sick patient's vitality must be prop up to a certain level first before an operation.
Do you understand what I am saying now. Again, I already said we can assume I gave you all the argument that you claim. But we're simply not even talking about the same thing at the moment.
