The One Thing We’ll NEVER Understand About Socialists

Written by  TFPP Writer

From Robert Gehl: for all the young, hip millennials out there who think socialism is keen and “adulting” is a verb, you just wait.

Social scientists are trying to convince us that people in their 20s aren’t really adults yet – that their brains are still developing.

They have a term for this – “emerging adults.”

The American Psychological Association even makes the case that, basically, these people (who we used to call grownups are really just post-adolescent, identity-confused “pre-adults” who still haven’t found their place in the world.

These are the same age of Americans who decades ago stormed beaches, hid in trenches, and made daring and heroic acts of bravery legendary.

Now they’re struggling to merely grow up.

Perhaps that’s why they’ve found a not-so new ideology to pin their hope and dreams on: socialism.

Buoyed by Bernie Sanders’ failed but wildly popular presidential run, Millennials are the only group who actually have a more favorable view of socialism over capitalism.

A Reason-Rupe survey found that 58 percent of Americans 18-24 have a favorable view of socialism and only 56 percent have a favorable view of capitalism.

These “emerging adults,” whose brains haven’t fully formed yet, find socialism appealing for one reason: they know nothing about it.
