50% of U.S. Millennials would rather live in a communist country

Millennials, aka Generation Y, are those born from the early 1980s to the mid-1990s or early 2000s. The U.S. Census Bureau uses the dates 1982-2000, which would mean Millennials are 17 to 35 years old.

Often the children of the Baby Boomers, Millennials are sometimes referred to as “Echo Boomers” due to a major surge in birth rates in the 1980s and 1990s.

Already possessed of some woeful attributes as a group (see examples below), a new survey found that as many one in two Millennials in the United States say they would live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

Shawn Langlois reports for Market Watch, November 2, 2017, that the survey was conducted by research and data firm YouGov for the D.C.-based nonprofit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VCMF).

Here are the survey’s findings:

  • 50% of Millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.
  • Disturbing numbers of Millennials see communists, including genocidal mass murderers, as their heroes:
    • Che Guevara: 26%
    • Karl Marx: 18%
    • Vladimir Lenin: 17%
    • Mao Zedong: 16%
    • Joseph Stalin: 13%
    • North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un: 13%
    • Venezuela dictator Nicolas Maduro: 12%
  • 53% of Millennials believe America’s economic system works against them, which is the same percentage in a previous study. In contrast, 66% of Gen Z, ages 16-20, say the system works for them.
  • At the same time as they favor communism/socialism, Millennials are the least knowledgeable generation on the subject, with 71% failing to identify the proper definition of communism.

VCMF executive director Marion Smith said:

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends. Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative. This troubling turn highlights pervasive historical illiteracy across the country and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago. This report clearly reveals a need for educating our youth on the dangerous implications of socialist ideals. We will continue to work with educators to build curriculum to address this important need.”

  1. Maybe we should have a huge GO FUND ME page for them, and daily collect enough to ship them off to maybe Cuba…too far away…try Canada, it’s going toes up with commie leader Trudeau.

    • I’d rather ship them to Venezuela. Let them hunt for their neighbor’s dogs and cats in order to have something to eat. The problem is they come from a land of plenty, and they don’t have a flippin’ idea what it is really like to live under a communist regime. This is the greatest travesty I can imagine.

  2. Considering that these millennials had little to no history classes or classes that have been rewritten is no surprise, but sad never the less.
    Everyone of them needs to be locked in a room and shown movies of what communism really is and what the above on the list really did to their people.
    Let them see that the free ride is over. You will work and you will work where told or be killed. You will be paid little to nothing. You will stand in long food lines praying that some food will be there when you are finally allowed in the store. More often than not, all the food was gone early. You will not have medical or dental care and few hospitals will be operating. You won’t have a cell phone, iPad, or computers. You will be fed the propaganda the government deems proper. You might even have to work one day a week for the government, thus you won’t be paid. You might dig holes or blacktop the roads, whatever they want you to do, but it won’t be nice. Shopping malls will be a thing of the pass and forget hair salons. You won’t be allowed to start your own business and forget any kind of capitalism. No more designer clothes, boots,and jewelry.
    You will serve in their military with bare bones equipment. You won’t have outside contact with most of your family or other countries. No vacations.
    Yeah, let’s put them watching those old films from Russia. I remember them.

    • Glenn, you have some great ideas to quickly cure this. Put all of these socialist wannabes in a locked room for several days, and show them real footage of what socialism and communism really look like. Make them believe they have been chosen for an exciting trip to one of these countries to experience it first hand. Take all their belongings except the clothes off their backs, take all their money and assure them that their bank accounts have been frozen and their balances will be transferred to the rulers of the country they are going to now live in. After all, they want to have the full socialistic experience. Tell them their job in this new country will be hard labor and their shift will be no less than 12 hours long, with no days off, period. They will be paid $1.00 per day, but the government will decide how much of it they want to take to give to others who did not work for it, so that the government can feel they are compassionate. They won’t have a car or their own home of any kind. There are no theaters, dance clubs, restaurants, or concerts, and they couldn’t afford to go anyway. The only books allowed are those approved by the state. You are not allowed to protect yourself and should you be caught speaking against the state, you will go to prison, where you will starve to death.

      Let all this sink in to these spoiled brat’s heads, and tell them the buses are on their way to pick them up to carry them to the airport and fly them to their new, wonderful country that is a socialist paradise. After scaring the hell out of them for several days, let them go. If any of them have even half a brain, I guarantee these young people will have a different worldview going forward!

  3. ‘Watch movies’ my big fat butt. Put ’em a communial/communist/socialist farm for a couple of years. Run it like a communist country. And don’t let them leave for their two years there. If they still don’t get it then send them to Chile/Venezulia/North Korea. One way ticket. I’ll kick in.

  6. I heard Rush talking about this on the radio this morning. He suggests that it be made mandatory for these people who think Communism is the way to live to spend six months in a Communist Country. If they survive their “six months in heaven”,maybe they’ll appreciate what America has to offer. If not-there’s always another plane headed back to where they just came from.
    I might not have gotten the paraphrasing exactly right,but I think this was the basic story.

    If they don’t like America – why don’t they move? I am sure that a lot of groups would buy them a ticket to Russia or Cuba and let them try living under a communist ruling country.

    The only problem would be is – I don’t think these countries would let them in because of their attitude. They require their people to work and do their share to get the freebies.

    Why doesn’t some group offer them a ticket and see how many takers we have?

  12. The poll measures the results of social engineering (think Frankfurt School and Macy Group) and no teaching of any history since the 1970s when ‘social studies’ replaced history. Not ALL millennials are hopeless cases however. There are signs of awakening…

  14. In the ’60’s people rebelled from what was the standard description of “Capitalism”. Since then, we have become a place (on purpose), where “austerity” rules the day.

    When Poppy Bush took office we made the “big shift” from “be all you can be” to “learn to accept what you have”. It was so clear at the time it was palpable.

    Moving ahead, we have now entered the era where none of the young people have ambition. They want to be taken care of. They are the most compliant and conformist generation yet.

    This did not happen by accident. They have been conditioned over time.

      Not ENTIRELY true. There are LOTS of them who aspire to pay their own way-just as SOON as they dream up something that won’t require any significant WORK,but WILL make them VERY RICH.

  15. Millenials don’t have much going for them. (And their sexual habits are down there with, well, take your pick). But they are right about one thing: Yes, I would agree: The system—especially the economic system—is going against them. Hell!—it’s been going against all of us. It’s been going against me!
    With all the cognitive dissonance and normalcy bias out there, this is Fear # 1: I very much fear that, philosophically and ideologically, we are BALKANIZING. This means we are being set up for what Revelation calls a “Great Delusion.”
    In the great drama of ideas, as they gain currency with the public, I am wont to lean on the top-down theory, that these ideas are imposed on the general public from the top down, by government and academia. But: Make No Mistake: As has been the case with contraception and abortion—as just one example—some ideas gain currency from the bottom up: Media, academia and government don’t have to do much to get certain bad ideas going.
    Either way, we have been, and are Balkanizing. It’s inevitable, and it’s bad news.
