Hillary and Bernie Lead the Children Revolutionaries
as being due to poor education, left-wing professors or even helicoptering parents. But a WSJ op ed gives another explanation.
As I was reading the article, I remembered my generation who lived through the great depression. In spite of calling us the greatest generation, I have to admit, that we panicked and we did vote in socialism in the form of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Without mentioning that era, the writer does point out that "the millennials can’t be faulted for being anxious about their economic prospects. They are coming of age in the weakest economy in generations. The underemployment rate (measuring those working a job for which they’re overqualified and underpaid) for young adults below age 30 is 60%." College degrees get them jobs at McDonalds and they have horrendous loans to pay off. They got cheated.
"The college graduate living in his parents’ basement and working a marginal job to service a student loan is by now an archetype of the Obama era." "Why wouldn’t young voters want "free stuff" paid for by the rich, as the Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton narrative promises?"
The writer also reminds us that they were in elementary school when the socialist countries such as USSR collapsed, so they don’t have the same awareness we do. But, still it is incumbent on those who know these things to try to explain to them that socialism will absolutely guarantee they will never have the future they long for. And we have to fight Bernie and Hillary with all our might for shamelessly helping the kids get their revenge.Wall Street Journal
