So this seems to be the end of the road for Bernie. It went much further than assumed by most “serious” analysts and gave a shock to the “responsible” Democrats.
Now that the candidacy of Hillary is secured, the system still has a task to complete: to prevent the juvenile social base mobilized following the call for this socialist elderly from continue to press for significant change in the capitalist consensus and jeopardize her access to the presidency.
Surely we’ll see flattering and promises to get the explicit support of Sanders to Hillary‘s candidacy and so to avoid the abstention of his followers at the polls. Let’s hope the opportunity will be exploited to turn the words of former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, into a reality:
We will not succumb to cynicism. We are in it for the long haul. We will never give up.
