Americans Aged 18-29 Have More Favorable Response To Socialism Than Capitalism

We saw this on Zero Hedge prior to the election and the election results made us revisit and post.

Immigration is one of, if not the most critical issue shaping the future of the U.S. Without it, we wouldn’t be seeing 80%+ of all immigrants to the U.S. from third world countries. We surely wouldn’t see a doubling of mosques in the U.S. since 9/11 nor the need for new laws specifically banning Islamic sharia law in U.S. courts. Yet we do. And there are many more consequences of the rapidly changing demographics in the U.S.

…a Pew survey of America’s youth, or those aged 18-29, more have a positive view response toward Socialism than they do toward Capitalism.We will leave it at that.

Socialism: 49% Positive / 43% Negative:

And Capitalism: 46% Positive / 47% Negative:

A separate post had this, America’s Demographic Cliff: The Real Issue In The Coming, And All Future Presidential Elections:

The younger population is by far the more crime-prone age cohort, according to the Department of Justice and the FBI Uniform Crime report. The DOJ publishes an annual report on arrests by age, the first occurring in 1980 and the latest in 2009. Over these years, the number of total arrests has increased by 30.9% for the entire population; for the 65+ population, it’s gone up 0.3%. Moreover, the Baby Boomer generation (in 2009, ages 45-53) accounted for only about 7% of all crimes. What were their most “Popular” crimes? Drunkeness and DUI. Violent crimes are almost exclusively the MO of the 18-29 cohort, who account for almost half (44%) of all arrests.

The 18-29 age demographic have a positive view of socialism, a negative view of capitalism, and account for a majority of all arrests and violent crimes.

To wit, segments of that demographic were celebrating on Twitter last after the election: With first post-racial president reelected, ‘F**k white people’ trends on Twitter.

Couple that with the 40% of Muslims in US who want sharia, 46% say criminalize blasphemy, and some who want the death penalty for such behavior and we have a growing problem.

We are at a tipping point where the majority favor liberty and individual rights and are willing to fight for it are overwhelmed by the soon to be majority who could care less about liberty, don’t abide by the laws anyway, and would rather be loyal to a Chavez-like dictatorship who fools them into believing the collective leads to prosperity. The road to serfdom is paved with good intentions.
