Yes, there have been stories about young people turning to socialism. One of the latest polls shows that a majority of millenials would prefer to live under a socialist, fascist or communist system rather than a capitalist one.
But thing are getting a bit more disturbing now that elections have been happening. Turns out one of the Virginia Democrats elected in last week’s special election. Lee Carter, is a young unreconstructed socialist, and a member of the far-left Democratic Socialists of America. That organization has seen a fivefold increase in its membership, from about 6,000 to now 30,000. You can bet the Communist Party U.S.A., now run in part by the fairly youthful and charismatic Libero della Piana, is seeing similar membership numbers rise.
