#225 / Let's Put A Label On It!
I had just written yesterday's blog posting about how off point I think it is to debate whether or not we should pay attention to the "socialist" label attached to politicians like Bernie Sanders when I ran across Jen Sorensen's cartoon, shown above, in the July/August 2018, edition of The Nation.
You can call it "European Culture" if you want to, but what are we really talking about?
You can call it "socialism" if you want to, but if that means "universal health care, a strong social safety net, and generous vacations and paid family leave," are you really against those things?
If you put a label on it, you don't actually have to think!
