When College Students **Don’t** Want Socialism

Socialist Youth: Are Americans Morphing Into Europeans?

Let’s hear it for “education”

Public education has succeeded in its mission as a “change agent.” Lots and lots of young people now say they’re in favor of “socialism”–they don’t know what it is, but they’re in favor of it–and would rather live in a socialist country than a capitalist one. Most of them think “government should do more to solve problems.” Government should DO SOMETHING! We want ACTION! We want CHANGE!

But how would college students like some of their Grade Point Average “redistributed”? Uh… they wouldn’t like that at all. (https://danieljmitchell.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/young-people-reject-socialism-in-the-classroom/)

They draw the line at socialism actually coming into their classrooms and sawing off chunks of their GPAs. They believe they’ve earned those grades! That they put in the time studying, cramming, going to class instead of cutting, and that their grades are, as it were, their wages. They wouldn’t like to see the fruit of their labors taken away from them and doled out to layabouts who didn’t earn good grades.

For grades, boys ‘n’ girls, read “paychecks.” ‘Cause that’s how government “solves problems.” It takes your money that you worked for, that you earned. And uses it to set up new bureaucracies that provide jobs and pensions for government employees but somehow, comrades, the poor stay poor! Guess they didn’t take enough.

So, yeah, they want CHANGE and ACTION, all right–but not if it comes out of their hides.

And it will, honey-chile, it will… It always does.

  1. I sent that video around on Facebook. Years ago I was enamoured with socialism and was involved with a socialist group. I started seeing some things, though. Several of these folks were still being “funded” by their rich mommies and daddies. In fact, I was the only one there who had an actual job. The hypocrisy is what slapped me in the face and I left them although they did what they could to keep me active with them.

    1. My high school and college friends were all liberals – we wanted freedom to do whatever we wanted. Today they are all hard-core socialist who love Bernie. I have no idea how this happens? I still want freedom.

  2. Good take on the GPA analogy! The college students would also object to the elimination of their private property. Isn’t it amazing these same students are for the Hong Kong protesters, and at the same time see Trump as the authoritarian fascist who wants to control their lives.
