Recent data from the American Culture and Faith Institute revealed that four in every ten American adults 18 and over say they prefer socialism to capitalism. Unsurprisingly perhaps, the younger the adult, the more likely they were to lean towards government redistributionist schemes.
The truth is that people gravitate towards socialism because they are told – either by professors they trust or officials they worship – that it is fair. We all see the unfairness of our society, and weak minds are easily persuaded that benevolent government should be put in charge of evening the playing field for everyone.
But it never works. Ever. And there’s a pretty simple reason why. If you have a socialist loving millennial in your family, send them this video. If someone you know is enamored by its promises and rhetoric, make them watch. We can’t afford for this trend to continue.
