12. Sanders is certainly opposed to a world determined by unregulated capitalism.

Cheese is right that Sanders would rather be called a democratic socialist than a capitalist.
To understand what "democratic socialist" means one has to think about what kind of policy changes are required to set up universal health care, and so on, so they work smoothly from the start. As Sanders says, we have to look at how socialist structures, like universal health care, an universal education system, and so on, have worked in other countries that have tried them.

Because the US is a backward nation in these regards. It is not a world leader in matters of social and civil rights and well-being.

It's good at war, though.
