Socialism – A Rebuttal

As pointed out in this Fox News Article, New group launches to warn young people about socialism, a shocking poll by Gallup revealed that 58% of Americans between 18 and 34 years old, believe that socialism is good. What may be even more shocking is that in 2017, according to this ZeroHedge article, 40 Percent Of Americans Now “Prefer Socialism To Capitalism”, indicating a rise of 18 percentage points in 2 years.

It is no doubt that the mainstream talking head channels pretending to be media, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, the AP, Washington Post, Huffington Post, VOX, etc., holding their socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on a pedestal not seen in American politics, has helped garner support for one of the most restrictive and oppressive ideologies ever conceived.

But, even though the “fake news” mentioned above garners national spotlight and T.V. airtime, they are not the only influences on America’s youth. Since the beginning of civilized society, educational institutions have been used to influence the beliefs of individuals. Today’s schools are no difference. From kindergarten, to elementary school, to middle school, to high school, and finally to universities, the ability for “teachers” to influence our children with their own personal beliefs is growing at an exponential rate.

In today’s school systems, parents have no control over the content that is taught, or left out, in curriculum. This applies especially to universities where outspoken socialists are employed to, for lack of a better phrase, indoctrinate the vulnerable. Those most open to influence. When their views are challenged, freedom of speech and thought are oppressed on campus. This Bloomberg article from 2015, When Students Are Afraid To Speak Up, raises these concerns. But perhaps even more disturbing, with the Democratic party pushing and condoning violence, that has led to the shooting of a U.S. Congressman, and a mass shooting in Dayton Ohio, according to another survey, Most US College Students Fear Expressing Political Views, 33% believe that physical violence is ok.

It is no doubt that the mainstream talking head channels pretending to be media, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, the AP, Washington Post, Huffington Post, VOX, etc., holding their socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on a pedestal not seen in American politics, has helped garner support for one of the most restrictive and oppressive ideologies ever conceived.

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Definition of socialism

1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods 2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state 3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

What is not taught in schools, apparently, anymore is the history of socialist regimes (including the NAZIs) that no longer exist, or even current events of socialist countries, that mainstream talking heads (MTH) CNN, MSNBC, et al mentioned earlier, bury in the last pages of oblivion.
