Bernie Sanders, Speak Up: Militarism and Corporate Power Are Fueling Each Other
|With a strong grassroots campaign for president, Senator Bernie Sanders is denouncing corporate power, economic inequality and “oligarchy.”||Background:
Bernie Sanders campaign website: “On the Issues”
National Priorities Project: “Military Spending in the United States”
Bernie Sanders: Speech to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
But he’s saying very little about crucial issues of war, militarism and foreign policy.
Martin Luther King Jr. explicitly and emphatically linked the issues of economic injustice at home with war abroad. Bernie Sanders should do the same.
Adequate funds for programs of economic equity and social justice will require an end to what Dr. King called “the madness of militarism.”
Overcoming militarism is just as vital as overcoming oligarchy. We won’t be able to do one without the other.
