It might surprize many that supporting what Bernie Sanders started here in America is a stance against my self interest and those of family and even my country of origin. Australia is a country that relies for a large part on coal exports for its economy. There is also economic reliance on the fossil fuel industry here in America. Everyone is tied to the current system at some point, somewhere, unless you are an island. It’s not to be condemned. But at what point do you take a stance against self interest and instead stand up for what you think is right. It’s not the moral high ground to do this, it just is what it is – a decision. And I’m talking about economic inequality here and climate change. I believe the progressive movement is the only one that has any hope of dealing with those issues.
