Those goofy millennials are at it again.
Now, a bunch of them have decided they’d be better off living under a communist regime.
Because they have so much personal experience with communism, apparently.
Honestly, the best part of poll results like this is that it makes it so much easier – and, in turn, more justifiable – to completely discount anything these people have to say.
Mrctv.org is reporting on the results of the survey conducted by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit group based in Washington, D.C. According to the numbers gathered by the organization, half of the kiddies polled said they’d rather be living under either a socialist or communist regime, rather than a capitalist democracy.
As mrctv.org succinctly puts it, “To remind, communist regimes are responsible for killing around 85 to 100 million people worldwide. Socialism has done such a bang-up job for Venezuelans that they’re forced to stand in hours-long lines just for basic groceries and have resorted to killing zoo animals for food.”
The mrctv.org article echoes one of the sentiments toward the beginning of this piece, suggesting that the affection many young adults apparently have for far-left regimes can be directly tied to the fact they simply have no genuine knowledge about them. For example, according to a recent YouGov poll reported on by the website MarketWatch, over 70 percent of the millennials they surveyed weren’t able to even define “communism” correctly.
And there you have it.
