I do appaud Bernie for going to Liberty University. But I don’t read that speech as an appeal for common recognition of the need for reform. He was arguing — quite rightly—for the common ground in economic justice that both left and right ought to share. But the even more certain common ground that exists between right and left—about this corrupt system—was not in that speech.
