When you’re sick in bed, you’ll watch anything to relieve the tedium–including Bernie Sanders being interviewed by Barbara Walters. Both have come a long way in life for being such nonentities.
Walters asked Sanders if he was against capitalism–a system that’s barbarism endears itself only to profiteers & psychos. Sanders answered no, he favored a mixed economy–an entirely fictitious economic entity which is capitalism with a few social services kicked in. He didn’t specify which country usually identified as a mixed economy he preferred to model. Whether China with its sweatshops & child labor, the US & UK with their massive inequality & endless wars, or Sweden with a multi-billion dollar defense industry.
Walters, who is a personal friend of Henry Kissinger, nodded approvingly at Sanders’ response. So much for Sanders the socialist.
