"Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign Tuesday, not with a bang but a whimper. The Vermont senator formally endorsed his rival in an undignified prostration before the Democratic Party establishment and Wall Street's favored presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The unity rally featuring Sanders and Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, had all the spontaneity and enthusiasm of a going-out-of-business sale. The funereal atmosphere was perhaps fitting, because with the demise of the Sanders campaign, the Democratic Party has demonstrated, for the thousandth time, its historical role as the graveyard of progressive movements and efforts to achieve reform through the capitalist two-party system."

    “the profit system is leading mankind toward catastrophe.”

    “the politically sanctioned profit system is leading mankind toward catastrophe.”

    FIFH

    Btw, the Socialist Equity Party has its own version of the politically sanctioned profit system.Maybe, just maybe, the stamp of political sanction of the profit system(that is, the violent enforcement of what is allowed and what is not allowed) is the problem.
