But he’s saying very little about crucial issues of war, militarism and foreign policy.
Martin Luther King Jr. explicitly and emphatically linked the issues of economic injustice at home with war abroad. Bernie Sanders should do the same.
Adequate funds for programs of economic equity and social justice will require an end to what Dr. King called “the madness of militarism.”
Overcoming militarism is just as vital as overcoming oligarchy. We won’t be able to do one without the other.
Please sign this petition to Bernie Sanders:
Senator Sanders, we are enthusiastic about your presidential campaign’s strong challenge to corporate power and oligarchy. We urge you to speak out about how they are intertwined with militarism and ongoing war. Martin Luther King Jr. denounced what he called “the madness of militarism,” and you should do the same. As you said in your speech to the SCLC, “Now is not the time for thinking small.” Unwillingness to challenge the madness of militarism is thinking small.
