Naomi Klein on the US Elections, the Democratic Party, and What the Movement Does Next | The Real News - June 20, 2016 |

    The Bernie Sanders campaign has shown that "a progressive majority in the United States is within grasp" and could play a major role in the next election cycle, said Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.

    "What do we do with this energy that now reveals that actually, a progressive majority in the United States is within grasp?" said Klein. "I mean, this is a shattering of the neoliberal consensus. We've been told for so long that the left could never win in the United States, and here you have a candidate who's a self-described democratic socialist, never walks that back. The more he spoke openly about seemingly radical ideas like free, free education and so on, free college education, the bigger the crowds became," said Klein.

    "On the other hand, what the Sanders campaign has shown is that a lot of what we told ourselves on the left is not true," Klein said.
