Indoctrinated or just idiotic? A hefty handful of millennials adore Karl Marx and all the tyrants he inspired. WTF?!
A recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation survey found that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist one. Ditto for euro dimwits, especially the starry-eyed French and a few Brits. Only 42 percent prefer the latter. Twenty-five percent of millennials who know who Vladimir Lenin was view him in positive terms. Lenin was the first premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Half of millennials have never heard of the Communist tyrant Mao Zedong, who ruled China from 1949 to 1976 and was responsible for the deaths of over 50 million Chinese people.
The number of people who died at the hands of Josef Stalin may be as high as 62 million. However, almost one-third of millennials think former President George W. Bush is responsible for more fatalities than Stalin. Read this. By the way, Adolf Hitler, head of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, was responsible for the deaths of about 20 million people. The Nazis come in as a poor third in terms of history’s most prolific mass murderers. According to research, the 20th century, mankind’s most brutal century by far, saw 262 million people’s lives destroyed at the hands of their own governments – governments and strongmen deeply inspired by socialism, ‘democratic’, fascist or otherwise.
Young people who weren’t alive during World War II and its Cold War aftermath might be forgiven for not knowing the horrors of socialism. Some of their ideals represent having been indoctrinated by their K-12 teachers and college professors. There was such leftist hate for former President George W. Bush that it’s not out of the question that those 32 percent of millennials were taught by their teachers and professors that Bush murdered more people than Stalin. Millennials in the UK cast similar aspersions on Margaret Thatcher, a maverick economic reformer and punk rock capitalist, who helped to tear down the iron curtain and defeat the USSR and its socialist proxies.
