- "Why Nation Owes Bernie Sanders Our Enduring Gratitude." Most importantly, he showed Democrats they could run successfully on policies like Medicare for all, free public higher education, and higher taxes on the wealthy – instead of the cautious “New Democrat” centrism of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama. By Robert Reich, Common Dreams, Feb. 19, 2019.

In a recent research paper, one of my colleagues at Berkeley, Gabriel Zucman, found that the richest 1 percent of Americans now owns 40 percent of the nation’s wealth. That’s up from 25 to 30 percent in the 1980s. The only advanced country Zucman found with similarly high levels of wealth concentration is Russia, whose oligarchy is notorious.

America has had an oligarchy once before – in the first Gilded Age, which ran from the 1880s until the first decades of the twentieth century.

- "Bernie Sanders put “progressive” back into the Democratic Party of Franklin D. Roosevelt."
