Campus Reform asked Washington, D.C. college students two simple questions: “Do you like socialism?” and “What is socialism?” They could answer the first question but, had a lot of trouble with the second. Our kids future is stark for sure if Liberal colleges are turning out students like this.
One student said of socialism, “I think people throw that word around to try and scare you, but if helping people is socialism, than I’m for it.”
When asked how she would define socialism, her answer was simple: “I mean honestly I’m not not exactly sure.”
“I guess just, you know, getting rid of that wealth gap in the United States?” ventured another.
One student supported it passionately, saying “It’s more of an open form of government and it feels a lot more accessible to a lot more people,” but when asked to explain what socialism actually entails, could only repeat now-common refrain: “To be quite honest I don’t know.”
