[collapse]

 

In this quote, Bernie Sanders is sharply criticizing the growing concentration of wealth and power among a small segment of extremely wealthy individuals. He argues that policy decisions and political influence are increasingly being dominated by the interests of the “super-rich”, to the detriment of ordinary Americans.

Sanders suggests the U.S. is becoming an oligarchy where the very affluent effectively govern on behalf of their own narrow financial class rather than representing all citizens. The quote conveys Sanders’ view that America risks losing its democratic principles and middle-class foundations if economic and political power continues centralizing within a tiny fraction of the population.
