  1. Of course it doesn’t compute to them that the costs of governments practicing the thing, socialism, that they are not afraid of has been the principle cause of most of the things that they are afraid of and for the loss of those things of which they think they have been deprived.

    If prosperity is to be redistributed by government programs then it is unavoidable that the redistribution of whatever poverty exists will be the societal cost that will be redistributed by the same programs. Socialist Governments and socialist government programs are ever-growing, virtual perpetual motion poverty generating engines.

    Popular democracy is the larval form of socialism — once a system of popular democracy is implemented in a society then a future that grows that democracy into a system of poverty-riddled socialism has been made a virtual certainty for that society.

  2. Well put Tom. Too bad they spent so much time from kindergarten on learning the statist/socialist message at the hands of their socialist teachers whose unions always strongly support “public” education.

  3. It’s really a case of younger people hoping to avoid working for a living.

    ‘Lazy’ can’t begin to describe the lack of work ethic that is so obvious in the Bernie Sanders supporters. They somehow have manged to believe there is such a thing as a free lunch.

    The under 30 demographic is not only clueless as to the destructive, robotic nature of ‘socialism’, but note how western society’s education system avoids any significant discussion of the absolute tyranny of communism / socialism. Why?

  4. Reminds me of a line from the movie “Men in Black” where Rip Torn’s character tells the men after the test and just before their “eye exam”, “…thank you gentlemen, you’re everything we’ve come to expect from years of government training”.

  5. No, the US education system has not failed. It is doing exactly what it has intended for years. Indoctrinating our children into a Communistic 2 class society.

  6. Every single country in the world is socialist to some degree- pretty much the definition of government.

    I’m enjoying the irony of American Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of Socialism and what it really means! Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. In practice, it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself, and the ambition and achievement that made modern capitalism possible and brought billions of people out of poverty. Talking about Socialism is a huge luxury, a luxury that was paid for by the successes of capitalism. Income inequality is a huge problem, absolutely. But the idea that the solution is more government, more regulation, more debt, and less risk is dangerously absurd.

  8. “The U.S. education system has failed.”

    George had it about right in the comments above: the education system has NOT “failed” — it has instead been a smashing success, per the intent of its administrators, the U.S. Government.

    If it has been a failure in any way, it is because it has taken so long for the public school system to finally wear down American values (liberty, independent thinking, etc.) to the point where the government can finally run things the way it wants without popular interference, let alone revolution.

  9. Oops, missed that Allen already said this earlier. Please forgive the (in effect) double post on my part.

  10. I read somewhere that 27% of Millennials consider themselves socialists, while 16% of Millennials are able to define “socialism.” And, excuse me, “we’ve had so much taken away from us”?? Self-absorbed, pampered brats. When the global system collapses, they’ll be the first to starve.

  11. Statism is the worlds problem. It stems from the Catholic Church and carried out by the Jesuits. They are actually whats behind the joke word “illuminati”. History proves this over and over from Constantinople to Rome to present day. Statists are religious to the core and have been completely indoctrinated by the Jesuits of Rome. They have literally no ability to critically think or question whats happening. They merely wrap themselves up in a corporations flag and yell racism until they get what they want. Malignant narcissistic sociopaths control the world, but are you really surprised in a sin fallen world with the greatest deceiver as their leader?
