2. Excellent article.

these demands would challenge the neoliberal logic of the prevailing order.

That's precisely why we are seeing the desperate reaction, see Brock and his Dark Money Super Pac, of those most threatened by the PEOPLE'S interests possibly becoming the most important interests of our government rather than the way it is right now.

They have a lot to lose, having worked so hard for decades to grab all they can grab for themselves, buying Candidates, installing THEIR Reps in power, taking over the media, and because of the their success in doing so, getting their hands on Public Funds, Medicaid now, Education and the big prize they are still working on, Social Security.

They bought one party out totally, they have half the other party making their goal of taking SS and privatizing almost a fait accompli.

Sanders campaign therefore is an enormous threat to them and they will do everything they can to derail it.

Let's hope we the people are strong enough to stop them this time.
