Something Socialist This Way Comes?

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

Bernie did not lose as a result of an establishment cabal’s dirty tricks. He lost because of a people’s revolt against socialism. Capitalism works for men who do. Socialism works for men who don’t. In the United States in 2020, the unemployment rate reaches just 3.6 percent. People intuitively grasp that a socialism that full-throatedly promises free stuff admits in more muted tones that such giveaways require free labor. Sanders, an intractable ideologue, stood his ground. That consistency, courage of convictions, and authenticity that drew admirers proved his undoing. Like the rigid ideology he advocates, Sanders lacked the ability to adjust. Bernie Sanders’ dream never dies.
