Why Bernie Sanders’s Praise of Fidel Castro Matters

David Harsanyi, National Review

There’s little doubt that Bernie believes collectivism — the discarding of property rights, for starters — offers a more equitable and decent option than capitalism. Bernie’s career has never been propelled by policy, most of them untenable here, but rather by class warfare. And younger voters are, and often have been, more susceptible to the “ethics” of socialism. At this point in history, they’ve not seen the economic infeasibility of those ideas, many of the massive disasters spawned by them, or the coercion that’s inevitably required to make them “work.” Or, maybe they don’t care. No, Bernie isn't Stalin, but he is a socialist. He’s been a lifelong defender of authoritarians. We're debating his positions.
