Also, this subreddit is active as hell. Feel the Bern.

I am from Myanmar (South East Asia) and I desperately want Bernie to win, because I believe his presidency will be good not only for US but also for the rest of the world.

IMO: the difference between democratic socialism and “human-centered capitalism”

Bernie Sanders is a left-wing populist, someone who isn't afraid to call out the ruling class. Listen to him, it's always the rhetoric of "we" rather than "I," and he openly talks about a "political revolution." His policies may be social democratic, but when asked if he is a capitalist in an interview, he flatly says "no, I'm a democratic socialist." I feel like if we develop a strong enough movement over the years, he would support actual socialism. He also doesn't frame politics as being about Big Men With Solutions. He genuinely wants masses of ordinary people like us to join him in fighting for economic, social, political rights. He embraces class conflict and struggle.

On other hand, I never hear Yang call out ruling class in militant terms. Yeah, he talks about "getting big money out of politics," but his solution isn't actually developing a movement to challenge elite power. He has a plan for "Democracy Dollars," i.e. just giving a 100 bucks to each voter to donate to campaigns. But this isn't systemic change, it's not about changing power relations at a structural level. And that's my whole problem with Yang. He basically is an advocate of technocracy, i.e. where a group of smart policymakers change the system from within, rather than all of us rising in a mass movement. His UBI proposal also appeals to libertarians, and he wants everyone to come to the middle. Yang is trying to keep all us proles from revolting against the system when automation hits.

TLDR; Bernie is for left-wing people power, Yang is a center-left technocrat who sees politics in a more top-down way

The divide in the progressive wing of the Democratic Party :(

This maybe considered more than a rant that anything else but I just have some feelings I need to share. To anyone paying attention to politics, it’s clear that there’s a lot of division between progressives in the dem party right now (specifically between camp Bernie and camp Warren). Honestly, my fear is that if we don’t unite soon, we are handing Biden the nomination.

In my opinion (and I’m sure of anyone else who follows this sub), it’s clear that Bernie is the most electable of the progressive candidates. So I’m just wondering, what is it going to take to get people from camp Warren, Yang, etc., to support Bernie in the primaries ?!
