Sanders may as well run but the left needs to be wary of his corruption of the meaning of socialism and revolution. We need a revolution toward socialism.
If he uses the term ‘Our Revolution’ let’s take him at his word in the real sense.

The crisis of the planet needs IMMEDIATE revolutionary action. The term ‘revolution’ means violent overthrow of governments. If Sanders makes one peep of protest against ‘Our Revolution’ taken to mean that he is a running dog and counterrevolutionary
