WHY DO YOUNG PEOPLE FIND SOCIALISM ATTRACTIVE?

Heavenly Father, give us ever increasing ways to educate our youth in the dangers of socialism.
145 People Prayed

To anyone over the age of 40, the growing appeal of socialist policies within the younger generations can be confusing.  To us, this nation’s capitalist system has provided the highest standard of living the world has ever seen, while “socialism” repeatedly leads to totalitarian governments like China and the USSR and destroys once prosperous nations like Venezuela.  One must wonder if our younger generations live in the same world as we do.  Do they not see the same things we see?

The answer to these questions is a resounding no.  The younger generations are growing up in a nation and a world vastly different from the ones in which Americans over the age of 40 were raised.

American children today have largely seen the opposite. American workers are routinely replaced by imported foreign workers and by outsourcing to foreign lands. Immigrants and illegal aliens massively drive down labor costs, requiring both parents to work to sustain an ever shrinking family. Everyone pays into Social Security, but no one under the age of thirty believes that it will remain in place for him to draw from when needed. The cost of college is unsustainable. No one trusts elected officials. Everyone feels that a single injury or illness will destroy his finances for decades. For many of us, it feels as if the prevailing sentiment of the now multicultural society is to cheer for our economic failure.

The America of today is starkly divided into two groups: a group that already accesses America as a socialist entity and a group that pays for that system but has no access to it.

For the first group, America is already a largely socialist government. Members draw their subsistence from government welfare programs and can receive as much as $1,000 a month for simply not committing crimes. Health care is largely subsidized or simply free, as the recipients either have no money or cannot be traced due to their lack of registration with the government. Food and housing are often subsidized as well, through federal or state programs. They are also given preference in access to education and access to programs to offset the cost of that education. Many of them who receive those benefits are citizens of other nations residing here illegally, but they still receive both the preferential access and offset costs denied to citizens and even veterans.

For the second group, they and their parents have paid into this system through taxes for their entire lives, yet they have seen few, if any, of the benefits to that payment. They are on no government programs. While violent illegal aliens are protected from prosecution, members of this second group receive harsh punishment for even minor nonviolent offenses. Any injury results in massive costs, and they are always fighting to keep jobs with shrinking wages and no security.

To members of this second group, the implementation of government policies that promise them at least a minimal return on the payments they are making into that system is a relief. This is how the younger generation of Americans view a “socialist” model, and this is why they see potential in it.

To young Americans, a system that promises minimal access to equality with other classes living in the U.S. is preferable to a capitalist model that robs them of all funds, all options, and all dignity while providing benefits only to other groups. Access to a terrible health care system is still better than one that will bankrupt you if you touch it. Access to a low-quality but free university system may still be preferable to one that is inaccessible due to race and will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars if you are given the ability to attend. The guarantee of a poorly funded safety net is still better than one that isn’t there at all.

The younger generation of Americans do not fear a totalitarian state . . . .

To pull the younger generation back from the lure of “socialism,” we must demonstrate both that the rule of law still applies within the U.S. and reassert equality under the law — without delay and without exception. The government must also provide a minimal level of care and benefits for those who pay into the system without allowing threats of violence to pull those resources to citizens of other nations or to be used disproportionately on those who rely solely on those benefits for generations without efforts to rise above those benefits.

In short, the government must cease working for others and once again work for its citizens and stop calling that “socialism.”

  1. I see capitalism and socialism overtaking our children. So many of them are choosing to be homeless or live with others and not care if they have housing. Many get free food and free clothes and some agree to go for treatment in order to get free housing. Then go back to the way they were. It is heartbreaking to see our children turn away form the ways of the Lord.
