Sen. Bernie Sanders and his ilk have promoted socialism for a while now and college students love it but they are lost when defining it.
How do you know when a generation is lost? When they start clapping like seals at the mention of implementing socialism into the United States but they when they are asked what does it mean, they try to act smart with their answers when they really are lost in the argument.
Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
Students love to hear free college, no bills, free everything but they don’t understand economics or reality. Someone is paying for their free stuff. We do not live off credit and we don’t live off of the land where we make deals for livestock and fruit.
Campus Reform went to Washington, DC, to find out if students really knew what socialism was and they failed, big time.

Last year, a poll was released showing 53 percent of Americans under age 35 are dissatisfied with our nation’s current economic system and think socialism would be good for the country.
The same poll found that 45 percent of young Americans would be willing to support an openly socialist Presidential candidate.
The findings of this poll coincide with the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed “Democratic Socialist” from Vermont who received millions of votes in the 2016 Democratic Primary, many of them from millennials.
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.
The same poll found many millennials are unfamiliar with historical figures often associated with socialism, such as Che Guevara, Joseph Stalin, and Karl Marx.
I think it is sad. Doesn’t say much for our education system. This is something they should have learned. We need to get back to basics and maybe some of these old basic concepts will be defined.
Some of them were parroting what their hero Bernie Sanders has been spouting but they have NO idea what they are talking about, and it is hilarious to watch them try to sound so educated and intelligent, when all they are doing is proving beyond a shadow of a doubt how ignorant they are. “it is better to keep quiet and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!”
