How to get your child to just say no to socialism




Despite mountains of historical evidence revealing the dangers associated with socialism, support for Karl Marx’s collectivist ideas is steadily increasing.

In an August 2018 Gallup Poll, 51 percent of young people aged 18-29 said they have a favorable opinion of socialism, compared to just 45 percent who said they view capitalism positively. Compare that to 2010, when 68 percent of young people said they view capitalism favorably. That’s a remarkable 33 percent decline in just eight years.

Many parents who support the traditional American values of self-responsibility, individual liberty and free markets, have been left to wonder how they can teach their children the truth about collectivism and resist the rise of socialism.

  1. A very disappointing article. The central issue with it is, values are just that values, and they generally comes as a set of mores from the endemic culture. Charity is and of itself is something that should be used on the rare exception basis and not taught as a fundamental tenet of a society because that becomes innately converted into a fundamental right. No one has a right to expect other people to support them.
    My grandfather told me “whatever you do, don;t go on the dole. No man should ever go on the dole.” Interesting when that is the code you grow up with, as a fundamental tenet, that you end up “not going on the dole”. There is not a male that descended from that family who has ever taken a handout, and almost every male has worked multiple jobs as needed to pull the family ahead and squirrel away a few financial nuts. And for the female descendants, it is interesting to note they selected men who were providers and worked along side their man. The point is, self pride is a learned thing and used to be an honorable thing that produced productive members of society.
