National Review writer Jonah Goldberg said the increasing trend of
young people embracing socialism and far-left policies is partially
attributable to the fact they have little memory of the Cold War.

The number-four House Democrat was recently unseated by a 28-year-old
socialist Democrat from The Bronx, N.Y. in a district where the
Republican economics professor she faces in November is a long shot to
beat her.

"The Cold War is so far behind us... that socialism has lost its
connotation and association with the rivers of blood that were spilled
in its name," Goldberg said, after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat Rep.
Joe Crowley (D-Queens) in New York's 14th Congressional District
primary.

In an op-ed, Peggy Grande discusses her former boss, President Ronald
Reagan and how he "never engaged in the politics of personal
demonization" and set the standard "for respect that we would be wise
to emulate still." https://fxn.ws/2KDuB5R

Goldberg said on "The Story" that prominent socialist Sen. Bernie
Sanders of Vermont plays up socialism as "basically... in favor of all
nice things."

"Economics shouldn't be about trade-offs, it shouldn't be about cost,"
Goldberg said of how Sanders and his followers view the subject.

Goldberg said a troubling aspect of Ocasio-Cortez' brand of socialism
is that she is "basically an open-borders socialist."

"You can't have a view that everybody is welcome here no matter
what... and still have any chance of handing out any of these goodies
[that you promise]," he said.

***@JonahNRO: "We live in this culture where we don't teach people to
be grateful for the incredible bounty that capitalism provides.
Instead, we teach people to be resentful and entitled, which is the
opposite of gratitude." #TheStory

Goldberg said the millennials that favor far-left politicians and
policies "have no memory of the widespread failure of Communism."

He said that instead, the world is now seeing the "greatest period of
poverty alleviation."

Even during the Cold War when communist states were busy implementing their persecutions and genocides, the useful idiots in the West, having infiltrated academia and the mass media, were busy indoctrinating young impressionable minds so as to maintain a strong cohort of people in complete denial about the fact that communism had many, many times the victims that fascism ever did.

And yes, that programming of young minds took root in the most deficient of those minds and has resulted in the pure idiocy that is gender theory, multiculturalism, and other faulty modes of thinking designed to further the marxist goal of causing western societies to suffer division and then collapse.
