Teach Your Kids The Ills Of Socialism
The United States, the only true bastion of freedom. The only country righteous enough to allow freedom of speech fully, and one of 3 to have a constitutional right to bear arms. People like me, patriots, hold this knowledge and these ideas with pride. However, there is a growing un-American movement of entitlement and the belief of stripping away our constitutional rights right here in the US.
The growing movement is socialism, not even half of young Americans today believe in capitalism, the same system that has grown more economies, taken more people out of debt, taken more people out of poverty than any other system or idea in the entire human history (700 million+ according to the foundation for economics).
In fact it’s the only idea which needs economic freedom as well as personal freedom to survive. It’s the same system America was founded on, as well as a representative republic it’s these ideas that are American. But the socialist, explicitly un-American ideas, have put hundreds of millions into poverty, annihilated entire countries, starved entire countries, killed upwards of 300 million people, started many wars including the Vietnam war and the Korean war put tens of millions into slavery and death camps including the holocaust camps as well as the Italian and Japanese camps and gulags and the North Korean death camps. Nazis are socialist, and fascists have socialist economic controls.
So why is it that people today can still be socialists and hate freedoms and capitalism? Well it’s because of ignorance, lack of knowledge, or greed. Ask any socialist why they are socialist and they will say something contradictory to hard evidence eventually, or just make a poor argument about why everyone should be rich but not everyone should work for it or everyone should work for it OR ELSE.
But the trend is that it’s in millenials, the idea of socialism being the ideal system. Baby boomers did way more then just prosper under capitalism, the greatest generation beat back communism alongside the boomers, and generation X has already seen the disastrous effects of Obama’s socialist programs and now can see the laid back economics of Trump. So please, teach your kids millenial or not about the horrors and evils of socialism, and show them how America got to the spot of most rich and most free, and how socialism could never even dream of getting here, and just one more thing to scare you, not even half of millennials support capitalism.
