    From: Young People Think They Want Socialism. But They Don’t.

    Another problem: Lack of knowledge about what socialism really is. Many young people were never taught about the reality of socialism in practice. The almost 100 million people starved or shot under various forms of socialism? It’s as if they never existed. Talk about being “marginalized”!

    It’s not all their fault. Teachers skip lightly over the evils of communism.

    I made sure I taught my kids about the evils of Marxism/Socialism/Communism because they weren’t being taught about it in school and many of the teachers were themselves socialists/progressives (one and the same!).

    The biggest reason that socialism is so easy to accept is because there are no real choices except those given to you by the state therefore you can not make a bad choice and if only the state is responsible then everyone is responsible which mean no one is responsible thus you will always be right as long as you follow the state which can never be wrong.

    It’s those of us who are not good followers who are the real problem.

    Re: Berlin Wall,

    I’m now officially old. I am a huge fan of a movie made right before it went up – “One, Two, Three”, which features the song “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini”.

    It’s one of my favorite Cagny movies, and has one of two good performances by Horst Buchholz.

    I yelled, and cried when the wall came down.

    Lots of college students think socialism is a government system where the government provides everything you need.

    Using fingerprints to track pay seems like a reasonable employer choice. Just like a card that needs a pin to track time. As long as it is a choice of the employer and not mandated by the state
