Noam Chomsky on Bernie's Chances

Noam called it back in early February. The entire spectrum of the ruling class circled its wagons against Sanders. Not that Sanders is all that radical. In most countries with a democratic government, Sanders would be barely center-left, perhaps square in the middle in many places. Their recent efforts at faux populism aside, the Republicans are a right-wing plutocratic party like El Salvador’s ARENA, and the Democrats are a centrist/center-right neoliberal party like the Christian Democratic parties of Europe and Latin America on economics, and a far-right imperialist party on foreign policy.
