All the young products of modern education who are cheering on their own destruction at Bernie Sanders rallies might not be so enthusiastic about submitting themselves to a socialist regime if they knew anything about economics, or history, but they don’t, so they do.
But maybe the example of modern day Venezuela, Sean Penn’s pet project before he diverted to supporting drug ls, would be more accessible. It’s on the verge of complete collapse, for all of the reasons detailed by conservative publications for the past decade.

Not the dismal economic growth rate or astounding debt its citizens suffer – what do children care about the future? – but the fact that 80% of these kid’s parent’s earnings will go for taxes, leaving them way less to pass along in allowances. That, and the idea that Mom and Dad fork over $49,000 for a Honda Accord, thanks to “luxury” taxes, when the same car in America costs $22,000.
Being a social justice warrior is all fun and games, until someone ends up in dad’s hand-me-down station car.
