"Seven Questions for Young Socialists"
In the past several years it seems that socialism (the ever-increasing control of a strong central government over the means of production and distribution) has become much more appealing to younger people in the United States. Many now proudly call themselves socialists.
Self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders had no trouble at all gathering huge crowds of young people during his presidential campaign. And of course, at Antifa riots, there are plenty of red flags being waved around by the "protestors" (sometimes with a hammer and sickle emblazoned on the flag).
So, since socialism (including its more tyrannical forms: communism, fascism, nazism) has become more appealing to young people in the United States today, I have a few serious questions
to ask them. These questions are to incite serious thought, not invectives or slogans or platitudes (which is what I get in response much of the time when I have debated committed socialists). Kindly think about these questions, and if you think it is worth it, pass them on to your friends.
