(Liberty Bell) – What has our nation come to?
When today’s millennials were babies and small children, the USSR finally fell. Americans had lived for decades with the knowledge that Marxism was dangerous and deadly.
However, as one of the biggest modern examples of just how dangerous the Communist state can be fell, the kids who grew up with no memory of the Iron Curtain and the atrocities suffered behind would grow up believing that Marxism was not only practical, it was also cool.
This is because, as the Russian bloq began to weaken, Marxist propaganda began to creep it’s way into our education system.
It’s pretty amazing that, nonetheless, today’s Marxist apologists are already behaving much in the same way as Marxists have historically: taking what they want by force while declaring they’re doing it in the name of “justice.”
It is no coincidence they’re targeting our national monuments and American identity.
They’ve grown up with the backward view, being taught that it is the evils of American imperialism that have perpetuated injustice and oppression globally, when the last 100 years of human history alone display that this is hardly the case.
A recent poll shows that the way Americans feel about socialism is greatly dependent on their age and feelings towards the founders of the United States.
Just the News reports:
For the younger generation, it’s less about political entities controlling the economy and more about ensuring everyone has the same rights and access to resources as everyone else.
According to a Scott Rasmussen, between 35-40% of Americans have a favorable opinion of socialism. For the older generations around during the Cold War, this is a problem. But for the younger generations who have applied a slightly different definition to the word, it may be a good thing.
Scott Rasmussen explores the nuances in his new Number of the Day podcast.
