Nonetheless Lindberg supports Sanders

Continuing from this post, Lindberg says near the end of his piece:

"As I’ve been writing this essay, I’ve revisited many of Bernie Sanders’ speeches, op-eds, and policy papers.  I’ve got to admit, I really like the guy.  I also think a good number of his policies could be useful in an America suffering catabolic collapse. [...] I understand why Sanders is not emphasizing his previous self-description as a socialist, but it is still visible in many of his policies, as well as his political temper.   On a finite planet, we need to focus on the fact that we are all in this together, and Sanders has the potential to move us in this direction.  I’ll certainly vote for him, and I may plant a 'Bernie' sign in our yard, amongst the unkempt weeds and rubble that symbolize my own catabolic slide out of the middle class."
