I can’t blame them for holding such views. This is our collective fault.

When younger Americans look at a system where they get lousy jobs for minimal money while billionaires get richer and richer and pay no taxes it's natural for them to think about alternatives. If you're one of the wealthy you think everything is just great about capitalism.

Well when you see an openly corrupt president and cabinet get away with blatant crimes; rapes, payoffs, tax evasion, etc... Sure you start to think the rich are untouchable because they can pay people off.

This is why Sanders is popular with all high school kids.

I would call a country like Denmark or Sweden a socialist country. The people there are happier than the people here, if you believe the polls. The people there don't hate their systems.

Bullshit like this is why the kids don't understand economics and the way the world works. You are keeping that whole "victimhood" false narrative going to further your own interests.

So far it's working and lots of people are buying into the lie.
