Because it's going to take a social movement to fight back, like he says, they've had 50 years of experience in dismantling democratic socialism in this country. There's a war going on, you won't hear about it in MSM, you & I KNOW it, because every single day, we live it. We can't afford status quo, it's killing us, the 99% is losing the class war.
