College students support socialism even though they can’t explain what it is

Campus Reform published a video yesterday showing college students in Washington, D.C. responding to two simple questions. The first question was: Do you think socialism is good or bad? As you’ll see, there was enthusiastic agreement from the students that socialism was a good idea, once which is about “helping people” and spreading the wealth. Some of the students even seem defensive, noting that socialism, inexplicably, has a bad reputation.

    Socialism is about helping the poor.
    Capitalism is about greed.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That passes for logical these days. Sad.

    The gullible have been “taught to be stupid” from an early age rather than critical examiners of all ideas put on the table.
    Not a very difficult task apparently.

      thinking are hard…….

    Most American college students can’t place the US on a map…..of the US.
