Someone posted this comment to my article “Why Sanders Will Slaughter Trump” on a British web site:
“Watching this election from Australia is strange. Americans seem to talk of Bernie Sanders like he's a raging socialist, yet from the Australian perspective he would be to the right of even some of our conservative Prime Ministers.
I find this article from 'The Betoota Advocate' (Australia's version of 'The Onion') particularly on point. This is how the US elections (and the hysteria surrounding the rise of Bernie Sanders) look to the rest of the developed world...
America's 'socialism' is basically Australia's center right.
Maybe the Overton Window has been ripped off the frame in America, and catapulted one kilometer away from the house? That's just my take on it, as a perplexed onlooker. “
