New Poll Shows Whether People Prefer Socialism Or Capitalism, The Results Are Disturbing

According to a new poll that was conducted between January 16-18, the supposed “higher learning” that takes place in college, or the move from adolescence into adulthood, seems to be sending young folks’ brain straight down the toilet, as the overwhelming majority of Americans between 18 and 24 would rather have socialism than capitalism.

A whopping 61 percent of individuals in this age group said they’d take a heaping helping of socialism, compared to only 58 percent saying capitalism was alright by them.

The SurveyMonkey online poll of 2,777 U.S. adults showed that the young age group was the only age group that favored socialism over capitalism; among Americans between the ages of 25 and 34, 58% reacted positively to capitalism, while 51% had the same feelings about socialism. The swing toward capitalism was more and more pronounced as the respondents got older; among those aged 35-44 the advantage was 56%-38%; among those aged 45-54 the edge was 60%-32%; among those aged 55-64 the difference was 63%-29%, and finally, among those aged 65 and over the advantage for capitalism was 69%-27%.

Last August, a Gallup poll found the percentage of Democrats who viewed capitalism positively plunged from 56% in 2016 to 47% in 2018 while 57% of Democrats viewed socialism positively.

As far as young voters, Gallup reported, “Americans aged 18 to 29 are as positive about socialism (51%) as they are about capitalism (45%). This represents a 12-point decline in young adults’ positive views of capitalism in just the past two years and a marked shift since 2010, when 68% viewed it positively. Meanwhile, young people’s views of socialism have fluctuated somewhat from year to year, but the 51% with a positive view today is the same as in 2010.”

As Walter Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University, wrote last August, pointing out the calamitous effect colleges have on young people:

One might be tempted to argue that the growing contempt for liberty and the lack of civility stem from the election of Donald Trump. That’s entirely wrong. The lack of civility and indoctrination of our young people have been going on for decades. UCLA history professor Mary Corey told her class: “Capitalism isn’t a lie on purpose. It’s just a lie.” She added that capitalists “are swine. … They’re bastard people.” An English professor at Montclair State University, in New Jersey, told his students, “Conservatism champions racism, exploitation and imperialist war.”

Conservatives might poke fun at how nonsensical liberalism and its adherents tend to be, but at the end of the day they were incredibly smart to employ a long-term strategy to take over the country and fundamentally transform it into a socialist nation.

They played the long game by infiltrating all the institutions in America that are responsible for the production of culture, i.e., the arts and education.

Leftists took over these two areas and started to infect young people with their twisted worldview so that when they grew up, they’d be loyal servants of the state and surrender their own liberty and rights. It’s genius. Evil, but genius.
