This was always going to happen: Lessons for the left on the loss of Bernie Sanders.

Writer Danny Haiphong explains what the left can learn about power and politics from the failures of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns - from the intractable challenge of insurgency within a corrupt system, to Sanders's ultimate, damning flaw: a deep reluctance to really challenge the capitalist power controlling the US, and the Democratic Party.

Danny wrote the article Bernie Sanders’ Exit from the Race Is Not Betrayal, It’s a Reality-Check for the American Herald Tribune.
