As sad as this is, a big reason for this is because of the Republican Party and the conservative movement's inability to address its shortcomings, ie the GFC, and its leader selection, ie Orange Jesus.

This country is going to move far to the left over the next 20 years, and the Republican Party's/Orange Jesus's base is a big reason why.
uhhhhh. its the idiots that vote dem that is the reason ....

No Generation has gotten screwed by our society like Millennials and Gen Z

After working and studying for years they are faced with massive debt and low pay with no benefits

They see the increasing wealth of the super rich and how corporate America has abandoned its workers

They view Socialism as our society doing more for its workers than its wealthy class
^^^^^^^

A serious lesson in ingratitude.

Not 150 years ago, people rose with the sun, had very little to eat, worked all day at back-breaking labor, to barely manage to feed themselves and their families through the winter. Women were in constant childbirth until they were in their mid-30's. They witnessed over half their children die and they themselves died in their late 40's early 50's.

The Millennials and Gen Z are fucking pussies who whine about not having it good enough in an age where life has never been easier.
It's amazing to think that even the lowest middle class person has in their home or apartment machines to do work that took 5-10 servants to do 100 to 150 years ago, which of course were only afforded by the most wealthy of sorts.
and thats thanks to capitalism.
The socialism of wartime time production in WWII ensured full employment and is what benefited the middle class.
More useless posting from our resident word diarrhea poster.

It's been years since you've gone on a "clue and cause" rant, why not try that?

And WWII production wasn't socialism, the factories were still owned by the capitalists.

Command economics over free market economics is socialism not free market Capitalism. Government is socialism.

Eminent Domain is proof that if socialism needs it for the general welfare, the Government can appropriate it legally, as long as just compensation is made as an acknowledgement of our Commerce Clause in particular.

I place this in Economy section, but I've always warned (from experience) that the social abuses on ones liberty and lack of accountability of government is the real danger of socialism.

The communists didn't need to invade, they invested in our schools and politicians. This is the result. Let's also be clear, the expansion of Crony Capitalism and lack of enforcement of abusers also doesn't help promote true capitalism/liberty.


Millennials and Gen Z-ers are becoming increasingly comfortable with socialism, according to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC), which conducts an annual poll assessing Americans' attitudes toward socialism.


VOC Executive Director Marion Smith attributes this trend shown in VOC's poll, as well as in other national polls, to a failure of American educational institutions, definitional misunderstandings and a double standard in media and on social media.

"We are seeing the high watermark, politically, of socialism [and] Marxism in the United States," Smith told Fox News. "Never before in history has the United States seen positive opinions of these ideologies to the extent that we’re seeing today. That's just a fact."

Support for progressive, self-identified democratic-socialist politicians including former 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has increased among young voters.
They see no hope. Greed destroyed America for the average person. so why not try something new?

The US government was ordering weapons, and industry gave it to them. rationing during wartime isn't socialism. Please show me where Marx referenced it.

Government is not socialism, socialism is socialism.

Eminent Domain provides compensation for taken property. socialism doesn't need it because the government owns the property.
