My friend Michael Snyder runs a great blog and I think that this particular post is one of his most important:
I was born in a communist country that collapsed in 1994 ( the former socialist paradise of Yugoslavia). It is disturbing that so many young people don’t understand the dangers of Socialism. It is obvious to me that that are enamored with the reputation of socialism and are totally clueless about how horrible it is.
The reason is that these teenagers and young adults have been drenched in nonsense by statist teachers and college professors and haven’t been properly educated about the reality of socialism.
Free-Market Capitalism is about freedom and prosperity.
Socialism produces dependency, oppression and poverty.
If our (barely capitalist) country and personal liberty are to survive (and hopefully thrive), we need to give the under-30 crowd the information that they desperately need.
What can you do? what can we do?
I am always happy to do public presentations on this topic and I even glad to publicly debate college professors. If you have ideas for how we can make a positive impact on this critical debate…let me know!
I wish all of you continued success!
