‘Monopoly’ Re-Invented for Bernie Sanders Fans Will Make You Want to Throw Up

In Federalist #10, James Madison explains the problem of faction:
Among the numerous advantages promised by a well constructed union, none deserves to be more accurately developed, than its tendency to break and control the violence of faction. …
By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community. …

Madison gives us three examples, among many, of faction:
[1] a rage for paper money, [2] for an abolition of debts, [3] for an equal division of property, or for any other improper or wicked project…”
Bernie Sanders, and his campaign for President, supports all three.
