Why is it that a significant percentage of America's youth have a positive attitude towards Socialism? According to this article, "36% of millennials polled say that they approve of communism (i.e., slavery by force, versus Socialism's slavery by majority vote), which is up significantly from 28% in 2018."
There are two simple reasons for this. The first is, their teachers and the media at large, are Leftists, and Leftists are Socialists. The second reason is, young people believe Socialism is the moral political-economical system. In other words, young people want to be good, and they believe Socialism is good.
Along with this, their view of Capitalism is typically, AT BEST, that it's a necessary evil. Yes, with iPhones in hand, and an Amazon purchase just a Suri command away, some of them recognize the productive power of Capitalism. However, despite these "totally awesome" benefits of Capitalism, and in spite of Socialism's gory record (responsible for over 100 million deaths in the 20th century), this is not enough to overcome the willingness to try it again.
America's youth can be forgiven for inexperience, and lousy teachers. However, there's no forgiving Leftist adults, and politicians, who should know better and DO know better. The former are unwilling to admit a lapse in judgment, while the latter are in a never ending quest for power. Yes, even though all Democrat Senators voted "present" on the "Green-New-Deal," the Socialist ideas embodied in the document have become doctrine for the party and its followers.
While Democrats are successfully rallying around a Socialist Congressional Resolution, despite a failed ideology, Capitalists have no such rallying point for their tremendously successful ideology...until now.
A Congressional Candidate named Ruth Papazian, who is challenging Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her seat in New York's 14th Congressional District, has announced the #ROCKME Resolution.
#ROCKME stands for "Rewards Of Capitalism: Knowledge MORALITY, and Empowerment." The press release can be found here, and the text of the #ROCKME Resolution can be found here.
This is an exciting development! #ROCKME is a platform around which all politicians who support Capitalism can rally. #ROCKME is a direct response to Socialism, by clearly proclaiming that CAPITALISM is the MORALLY superior system.
Congressional candidates across the nation should consider announcing their support for #ROCKME as Co-Sponsors of the Resolution. They are encouraged to become #ROCKME Rebels!
#ROCKME represents the fantastic vision of Ruth Papazian, in uniting the party around free-enterprise, American ideals, and MORALITY!
