Response to Matt Taibbi Interview with Bernie Sanders 12/15/2016

In Taibbi’s retrospective interview with Bernie Sanders, the senator describes how our problem is far more profound than a single political election. Sanders knew all along that Donald Trump could only win the White House if Americans were unmotivated to get involved in politics, indifferent to the process of government, and lacking in the tools needed to be engaged citizens. As he put it: ” we are down to maybe one or two percent of people in this country who are actively involved in progressive movements and ideas.” That degree of apathy and ignorance will get a demagogue elected every time.
