Bernie Sanders is very much like Karl Marx in their getting rich through Capitalism while espousing everyone else should live under Socialism

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons why Bernie Sanders is such a staunch advocate for Socialism and Communism is that his own life appears to mirror that of the very philosopher who created those economic models.


Both Karl Marx and Bernie Sanders were indifferent students at college and dedicated much of their time towards radical activism.

Marx -  Karl's dad got him into a number of fine schools. He wasn't a very good student so the family connections came in handy (more exposure to how unfair the system was).  His father wanted him to get into law, but Marx preferred philosophy and history.

Sanders - Sanders studied at Brooklyn College for a year in 1959–60 before transferring to the University of Chicago and graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in political science n 1964. He has described himself as a mediocre college student because the classroom was "boring and irrelevant," while the community provided his most significant learning.

Then early in life both Marx and Sanders chose to get married but were unwilling and unable to support their wives or their children.  In the case of Sanders he had a child out of wedlock after his first wife left him and the child and mother often lived in squalor.  Meanwhile, Marx allowed three of his progeny to die of starvation.

Bernie shacked up with Susan after splitting with first wife Deborah, sources said. 
The pair raised Levi in an “informal arrangement,” according to an insider, with the boy calling his dad “Bernard.” Levi sometimes went hungry, and lived in the dark in their rental apartment. “The electricity was turned off a lot,” recalled a pal, Nancy Barnett. 
“He (Bernie) couldn’t pay his bills.” - National Enquirer
Since neither Marx nor Sanders had the internal fortitude to make a living by their own labor, they learned to game the system.  In the case of Marx, he used his charm to coax money from banks and from a rich benefactor named Fredrich Engles while Sanders often lived on welfare until friends encouraged him to carpet bag to the state of Vermont where he slipped into politics.

Now decades later Bernie Sanders is still preaching the ideals of socialism and Marxism but is doing so as one of the bourgeoisie.  In fact in recent tax filings produced to the public by Sanders as he tries once again to run for the Presidency it shows that not only is he one of the 5% of top wealthy Americans, he did so through the very Capitalist system he claims to abhor.
When confronted as being among those he has long villainized, Sanders became defensive: 
“I wrote a best-selling book,” he declared. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.” 
Translation: "I made my money fair and square, so quit hassling me about it." - Mises.org
The fact of the matter is neither Karl Marx, nor Bernie Sanders wanted to live under Socialism, but whew their inner loathings of themselves evolved into where they now seek to project their miseries onto the rest of the world through authoritarian philosophies.  And this is why radical Marxists like Sanders don't really believe in the rhetoric they spew since what they really want is to be just like those they claim to hate and will try to accomplish that by any means necessary.
