This entirely subjective matrix of characterizations of the candidates, their voters and their campaigns, is 100% accurate in my opinion. The candidates (and the categories associated with them, below) are listed in the preference ranking of the corporate establishment, which is exactly the inverse preference ranking of the public.
Hillary Clinton: corruption, incompetence, mendacity, careerism.
Donald Trump: bombast, braggadocio, bigotry, bluster.
Bernie Sanders: integrity, vision, judgment, compassion.
old, comfortable, boring, fearful, unthinking, manipulative, selfish, want Democratic labels on Republican outcomes.
Donald Trump’s: white male, non-thinking, envious, resentful, want attention/respect.
young, young-at-heart, idealistic, sociable, intelligent, hard-working, underpaid, determined, honest, want justice.
CI = corruption index (0 to 1)
BI = bigotry index (0 to 1)
BI = (BvI + BaI)/2
BvI = verbal bigotry index (0 to 1)
BaI = action bigotry index (0 to 1)
100% corporate establishment;
CI = 1.0, BvI = 0.2, BaI = 0.8, BI = 0.5
60% corporate, 30% private, 10% public;
CI = 0.6, BvI = 0.7, BaI = 0.3, BI = 0.5
CI = 0, BI = 0 = BvI = BaI.
Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign is a public relations spectacle to mask the attempted continuation of corporate establishment ownership of the Democratic Party.
Donald Trump’s primary campaign was a successful hostile take-over of the Republican Party by a combine of maverick corporate raiders and disaffected populist white supremacists. The corporate establishment ownership (same one) has accommodated itself to this change in Republican Party leadership.
Bernie Sander’s primary campaign is a hostile take-over attempt of the Democratic Party by the public. The corporate establishment ownership (same one) continues to fight this take-over attempt, and its intended expropriation of the Democratic Party by the public.
