Bernie Sanders won a handful of concessions in the Democratic National Committee’s platform, with the party lining up behind his vision on the minimum wage, financial regulation and other issues.
draft version of the platform was released Friday, amid an ongoing battle to get Sanders to end his presidential campaign and endorse presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton
The platform explicitly calls for a $15 minimum wage, a position long espoused by Sanders. 
"Democrats believe that the current minimum wage is a starvation wage and must be increased to a living wage," the text reads.

American Power Under Challenge Masters of Mankind (Part 1)
By Noam Chomsky

This piece, the first of two parts, is excerpted from Noam Chomsky’s new book, Who Rules the World?politan Books.  Part 2 will be posted on Tuesday morning.

When we ask “Who rules the world?” we commonly adopt the standard convention that the actors in world affairs are states, primarily the great powers, and we consider their decisions and the relations among them. That is not wrong. But we would do well to keep in mind that this level of abstraction can also be highly misleading.

Part one of two. Part two was published in the May/June 2012 issue.

like you and OTHER AMERICANS, I love my country, its wonderful people, its boundless energy, its creativity in so many fields, its natural beauty, its many gifts to the world, and the freedom it has given us to express ourselves. So we should all be angry, profoundly angry, when we consider what has happened to our country and what that neglect could mean for our children and grandchildren.
