Liberal Students Love Socialism but Can’t Define What It Is (Video)

lib students fail on socialism

Today, if you’re a college student in America, the “in-thing” is to be a fan of socialism. With college campuses leaning more to the left than ever, it’s become the de-facto political ideology of choice.

But there’s just one problem — college students have no clue what socialism is, they just think it’s a good thing because that is what they are being told by college professors and liberal media.

Via CampusReform:

Ask most college students, and they’ll tell you that socialism is a wonderful thing. Just don’t ask them to define it, because you’ll get the same answer.

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.

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?”

It quickly became clear that while most of the people we spoke withheld an idyllic view of socialism, most had little idea of what it actually is.

They don’t give a damn what socialism means and what will happen with this country they just support Socialism because it’s cool to support socialism now.
