We commented already on this idea today: a good idea, no doubt, but i begin to doubt sanders’ sincerity: you can throw out ideas, cheap, but when you really know they are out of scope, what’s the point, save, of course, to make a socialist statement, good or bad politics, depending.
But the point here is that a realizable idea needs a realizable set of tactics which may mean revolutionary ones, but even electoral means can work. The point is that it is probably easier in the end to establish full socialism than to go only halfway with complicated schemes that leave capitalism intact.
