The New York Times has a strong statement about Bernie Sanders, which I see as a bug, not a feature. The bug was introduced to the U.S. government by Ronald Reagan. The bug is thinking that compromise and changing one’s mind is wrong. Reality is that compromise and changing one’s mind is wisdom, which we sorely lack. The root cause of the bug is thinking of the President of the United States as a dictator. You see this clearly in Trump’s actions and in his words: “Only I can do it.!” In the Republic formed by the United States Constitution governing involves compromise and convincing people to change their minds. By design one person can NOT change our government. It’s on purpose, and I do not think one can claim themselves a patroit of the United States without embracing this understanding.
