American millennials and their attraction to socialism
by Bob Livingston
“For people under 30, socialism isn’t a scary word.” So we are told in the lede to a McClatchyDC article analyzing the Bernie Sanders phenomenon.
The writer tells us that millennials, the generation born between 1982 and 2004, are attracted to Sanders because they identify with his ideals, particularly his promises of free college and health care.
Surprising? Hardly. Millennials are victims of generations of indoctrination in public (non)education government re-education camps. They’ve been pampered and taught a pseudo-history of state worship that glosses over the millions of deaths and massive human misery caused by democracy and socialism.
The writer tells us:
The millennials worry about college debt, not finding a post-graduate job and paying the bills, said Sarah Smith, 21, a senior global affairs major at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. “As a millennial, I believe that we identify with what Bernie Sanders has to offer because we’ve had so much taken away from us.”
What she’s missing — as are the millennials flocking to Sanders — is that college debt and lack of post-graduate job prospects falls squarely on government’s socialistic redistributionary and regulatory policies. They’ve “had so much taken away from us” by government, so they look to more government for solution.
Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist. What he is is a social democrat. Both socialism and democracy are anathema to human liberty.
Social democracy is a disguised system of stealing the wealth and production of the producers of wealth with spurious laws under the legitimacy of the vote. Stealing or taking from producers and transferring it to nonproducers is very sophisticated and concealed class warfare.
Socialism is not possible without fiat money. Socialism – even that socialism disguised as democracy — and fiat money are the twin towers of public deception. They are required to deceive Americans concerning their own affairs.
Under a socialist or democratic system, the common wealth is perverted into a collective “public good,” or disguised socialism, which is used as the primary appeal to advance both democracy and the love of money.
Democracy and fiat money both thrive on the darkest sins of man’s heart: greed and guilt manipulation. Fiat money appeals to the greed of men by asserting that it is possible to be wealthy without hard work and creativity — that one can create wealth merely by accumulating paper that has been arbitrarily numbered and assigned a fictitious value. Hence its allure to the pampered and decieved millennial class.
As the Bible says, the love of money is the root of all evil. Democracy supports this wickedness by permitting the populace to vote itself benefits from the largess of the public trough. The big lie is that all can become wealthy in this system of unlimited paper money and unlimited paper money redistribution programs. The widespread guilt created by these sins of greed and deception is then used to manipulate the public into supporting social welfare programs.
The system regenerates itself: The public relieves its guilt for having loved money so much that it allowed the creation of lots and lots of worthless “money.” The illusion is that there is widespread wealth. The illusion is that there is self-government and freedom.
Always remember: The government has nothing good or nice to give to you. The government is in the business of shrinking freedom (and wealth), not expanding it.
Socialism is by no means limited to a political system. The definition of socialism under any masquerade is the pseudo-morality of groupism over the individual.
All political power is derived from this. This definition must be understood or there is no understanding at all.
