Sanders has expended a lot of effort on attempts to get elected and it is hard to see how a third effort could get anywhere. He has (hardly the only) coopted the revolution meme and devalued it to personal grandstanding with a cute slogan demoting ‘revolution’ to a crippled reformism. His efforts are under suspicion of being a huge ego trip doomed to accomplish absolutely nothing. The CIA could hardly ask for a more effective sabotage of a revolutionary potential into a harmless hot air rhetoric.
A (socialist) revolution is a violent challenge to a government captured by capitalist oligarchy.
I will grant that the current left is so controlled by Gandhian saintly hardwringers that any serious strategy is unable to get past non-violent wish fulfilment and protesters with placards on Common Dreams. We only have a few years left. Another Sanders distraction is hardly in order.

From the Conclusion
The prophetic period of the 1848 period foresaw the problematic of capitalism but the phenomenon outstripped their revolutionary intent/ Perhaps the escalation of extreme climate will prove the tipping point to action however belated. The current US system is doomed, and the echo chamber of fascist ghosts. The American Revolution was one of the very few that came to a successful term. A republic if you can keep it, as the Founding Fathers noted. We may thus allow ourselves the thought that a new revolution is founded in a hidden lemma of our Constitution, to the consternation of dismal reactionaries and capitalist hyenas. And with a new knowledge bequeathed from the era of the 1848 period, that democracy without a socialism is not democracy and that a new revolution must be the last chance for the Last Revolution, the men in three-cornered hats, now socialists in a new democratic socialist republic, to once again be a model to the world.
