Socialism Is The Cool New Liberalism

It’s the natural progression of things: Millennials believe calling yourself a socialist is sexy.

Remember the way-cool Sixties when guys used to attend protests and rallies to get laid, because young women could not resist such caring, passionate, liberal guys? Now there’s an app for that. But as in the way of all flesh the guys have had to up the ante on their care, passion and liberalism - all the way to socialism:

Things have gotten so social with socialism that the young and restless now can consult a dating app called Red Yenta to find the fellow socialist of their dreams.  Creators Marissa Brostoff, 33, and Mindy Isser, 28, were concerned that socialist men were not dating socialist women, and described their new dating platform as a "communal service" to help filter through a potential date's political leanings.

After 12-18 years of publicly funded brainwashing the Millennials and their follow-on generation have been  primed to embrace the utopian ideal of socialism.

"Coolheaded Obaman technocracy is out; strident left-wing moral clarity is in.  And while this atmospheric shift is felt most acutely among the left-literary crowd, it's also bled into the general discourse, such that Teen Vogue is constantly flacking against capitalism and one of the most devastating insults in certain corners of the internet is to call someone a neoliberal,"

Because liberal - neo or otherwise - is no longer cool enough, edgy enough or anti-capitalist enough to be sexy. In order to be sexy these days you need to clamor aboard the train to serfdom.

Leave your baggage on the platform and bring only your faith in AOC, the New Green Deal, a world of zero fossil fuel, 100% renewables and no bovine flatulence. When you arrive at your sexy destination enjoy riding you bike to your mind-numbing public sector job and to que-up to shop with your reusable bags where there will be little choice as to what you buy. Sorry that your educators forgot to tell you what life as a 21st century citizen of the world in a socialist paradise entails.

Socialism's millennial fans don't even know what it is.  Millennials — ignorant of socialism's appalling economic and human-rights history — increasingly embrace socialism and its naively unrealistic prescriptions for ending all human want," says a New York Post editorial, noting that a recent Gallup poll found that 57 percent of Democrats have a positive view of socialism.

"These socialists insist they don't support repressive states like the Soviet Union or North Korea," The Post said, and instead "point to Scandinavian-style socialism in nations like Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as 'true socialism.'  One problem: Those countries aren't socialist."

They tried it, but they don’t necessarily like it.

Now they’re fixing it. To paraphrase Meryl Streep: “when are we going to stop brainwashing our children!”
