Medicare for all, free college, and taxing the wealthy are not "burning the whole establishment to the ground." Bernie's problem is that he's been calling himself a "democratic socialist" when in fact, he's more of a social democrat or New Deal Democrat.

I'm not optimistic about the future of our country or the world in general. Notre Dame burning is a good metaphor for the current state of affairs.
