Tom,

Thanks for your response. I will try to respond to the points below.

  1. According to Wikipedia on the same topic, “Democratic socialism is contrasted to Marxism–Leninism which is viewed as being authoritarian or undemocratic in practice.” So I doubt that the kind of socialism we saw in Russia their satellite countries is what Sanders has in mind. I think he has made an effort to distinguish himself from the abusive socialist countries we have seen in the past.

Thanks for your reply, Tom. you’ve given me much food for thought.
