A new video out of Washington DC shows a diverse swath of young millennials love the idea of "socialism," even if they can't explain what it is.
From Campus Reform:
While it’s clear that young people increasingly view socialism in a positive light, it’s also clear that many of them are uneducated about what it entails, or the impact it’s had throughout history.
Wanting to see what millennials in D.C. thought of socialism, Campus Reform headed to Washington, D.C. to ask students two simple questions: “Do you like socialism?” and “What is socialism?”While they can't explain what it is, they understand the basics: taking from the "privileged" to give to the "underprivileged."
They're not thinking about history or the long term implications of stealing from the people who create everything to give to people who create next to nothing, they just see producers have stuff they want, and they want to steal it for themselves.
Sitting down and explaining the history of socialism to most of these people is not going to change their mind.
