Bernie Sanders took socialism out of the margins and into the American mainstream for the first time in generations. That makes him a historic figure whose legacy will far outlast his critics.
The historic scale of this economic crisis demands an effective socialist movement. Now is the time to renew the Labour Left – and build a Momentum that breaks out of its liberal cul-de-sac.
