Millennials are disillusioned with capitalism are are turning to communism and socialism.
Can we honestly blame them? Standard of living in the United States has been stagnated since the 1970s, bleak job prospects, oppressive student debt, and the “follow your dreams” ideology turned out to be a lie.
In other words, everything built by a capitalist society has left millennials with little hope.
Little hope of owning a home.
No hope of being financially independent.
Little hope of living the American dream.
No hope of being able to afford to have a family.
Millennials have rejected an economic system that exploits workers. Why would someone want to dedicate themselves to a line of work that would keep them in borderline poverty? That is one reason why I left the welding shops of southeast Texas. Who in their right state of mind wants to dedicate decades of their life to working, and have nothing to show for it? Thus is the end result of capitalism.
