Wow. Heavy reading material. Good on you.

If you get a chance, you should dig in to arguments in favor of capitalism.

So your pronouncement that schools indoctrinate and fail to present arguments against Socialism is based on what?


Common sense. Young people and college students tend towards socialism even despite its historical failure.

So it's an assumption. Perhaps you should look into how correct your intuition is.

Cultural and Generational.

Automatic Indoctrination.

Freedom of expression doesn't equal to "let's indoctrinate children with lies about socialism/communism being great".


Have you even read the book? You sound more like a Commie than me.

What version is that?


The version you'll beg for by the time Trump is done with us.


There is no version which will work. People who espouse Communism always seem to believe that it's not Communism that fails but that it just didn't get done right...


Tell that to Jesus.

In what way does a Bernie Sanders as president get rid of Capitalism?

And the Agenda 21 and Common Core conspiracy theories are just plain old stupid. You literally have to be a moron to buy into them.

All political theories fail to balance the paradox of human societies - the dual needs of the state and the individual. One always prospers at the expense of the other. Fine, government can go you say - but who fixes the sewers, cares for the invalids, protects the population from predatory people?

So far as I can tell the Constitutional Republic is still the best form of government. The US only failed because we allowed money to influence politics. It's still called public service though it seems those at the government trough get way more than their fair share. This is the main ill in need of correction along with the fiat money system administered by the Federal Reserve.

Jesus and the Millennial Kingdom might well be the only working socialist state in the world ever, but even then, it wouldn't be socialist because we will still have our own goods and services instead of a completely state owned system.

How will it function and why will be a complete mystery until those days arrive, but suffice it to say that we mere mortals cannot implement such a system ourselves.

Is there a Capitalism for Kids?

The Communist Manifesto is the 4th most assigned text in all schools, behind only Plato's Republic, The Elements of Style, and Biology. Where do you think Adam Smith or Hayek or De Tocqueville land on the list?

The count is still nearly double that of Adam smith, given the available data.

The whole article is worth a read. Mein Kempf is assigned a lot too.
