Bernie Sanders is an IDEA: a MEME
“Bernie is almost not a person, he is an IDEA.
To use a fancy modern term he is a MEME.
He is a viral idea.
And that viral idea is very central to the concerns of the American people.
He has managed to connect up the idea that:
- people’s wages are not advancing;
- that the real income has not increased in the middle class in 25 years;
- along with the idea that there is a corrupt political system based in Wall Street and corporate money and PACs. . .
. . . And that the very symbol and essence of all of that is Hillary Rodham Clinton.”
