I’d Love to Change the World

I’ve always thought this was a great song.  One lyric came to me again today in the midst of the fall of Warren and the rise of Bernie:

“Tax the rich/feed the poor/Till there are no/rich no more?”

I’ve got no problem with taxing the rich or feeding the poor.  I always thought the goal ought to be no poor no more.  Maybe it doesn’t flow as well in the world of songwriting.  But, I wonder if that’s the difference between Warren and Sanders supporters.  Warren supporters focus on eliminating poverty, while Sanders supporters want to get rid of the rich?

Just a thought.
