Forgetting history

Funny how conservatives are blind to countries, such as Canada, the Netherlands, or Australia, where Bernie Sanders’ ideas have reached full flower for a generation. If Donald Trump’s elected, the Canadians will have to put up a wall to keep Americans out.

By the way, U.S. history shows plenty of examples of full blown capitalism from the 19th century, and it sounds at least as bad as anything happening in Venezuela today.

Remember how capitalists were outraged that workers would get Sundays off and only have to work 10 hour days? And why bother with workers’ safety? They were considered cogs in a wheel — if one breaks, simply replace it with a newer model.

The injured worker and his family? Not our problem.
