Bernie Sanders has changed the rules. Without the Vermont senator acting as a foil to her insatiable hunger for corporate financing, Hillary Clinton would have sailed through the primaries on a boat made of legal bribes.
There are two prevailing views on the matter. The skeptical position is that the movement will reach a dead end in a manner reminiscent of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Optimists are hoping for a long-overdue social revolution, or the rise of a French version of Spain's Indignados movement.
Remember! Remember yourselves as you were when you were in your teens, 20's and 30's. Remember what it means to be unafraid of the future. Remember when you felt when you knew you could make a difference. And then remember to vote. It's back in there, someplace. Vote the youth you have never lost.
In his recent Op-Ed piece for The New York Times, A.O. Scott explained why "Everybody's a Critic. And That's How It Should Be." Unfortunately, not all analyses of critical thinking as an art form and means of public engagement are as elegantly constructed as Scott's essay.

In 2016, activism is finally cool again. For the Millennial generation who are coming of age in this election cycle, taking to the streets in protest for something you believe strongly in, is somewhat becoming a right of passage.

Many booarding schools have found it difficult to consistently maintain full enrollments. Mercersburg was founded as a boys' school in 1893; it added girls in 1969 to counter a shrinking male applicant pool.
Hillary is not running in the primaries against Republicans, who, the Times noted, "make no bones about their commitment to Wall Street deregulation and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans." She is running against Bernie Sanders
Instead of narrowing, the longevity gap between rich and poor has actually increased by 7 long years during the reign of runaway inequality!
Paul Krugman, Team Hillary's ace New York Times columnist, simply cannot find a kind word for Bernie Sanders or his idealistic supporters.
We are living through the greatest "wealth grab" in history. But inequality is not produced by immutable forces. It's the result of a legislative agenda promoted by the rich and executed by their political allies.
The movie's coda informs us that despite the enormous damage done by Wall Street, little has changed. That's simply not true. So what's missing from "The Big Short"? For starters: Dodd-Frank, Elizabeth Warren, Occupy Wall Street and Bernie Sanders.
