At least one professor in America does not feel the Bern.

University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action.

After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment.

“I gradually became disenchanted with Marxism by visiting many of the countries that had tried to shape their societies to conform to its doctrines. I was disillusioned by the realities I saw in … socialist countries – the USSR, Eastern Europe, China, Cuba, etc,” Stauder told The College Fix via email.

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

There will always be non-functioning minds that the left will capture and abuse in various ways.

"Gary" is a perfect example.

Marxism, Communism, Socialism are myths on par with the Easter Bunny and Santa.  In the political / social world, they allow people who have had to give up their Santa because they were 14-15, to stay at that age forever by believing the variations of communism.

Yesterday I read a great mention of the difference between equality and equity.  Equality (equal opportunity for everyone) is possible, and is established by the American constitution.  Equity (equal outcomes for everyone) is not possible.  It requires an artificial system that can't be sustained, and can't be applied to humanity.

Apparently this Prof needs a sense of direction.
Dartmouth is in New Hampshire, not Massachusetts.
