The Future Of America: Socialism

Merriam-Webster reported this week that "socialism" and "capitalism" were the most looked up words of the year. This statistic reminded me of another Pew survey I recently came across. The results were terrifying.

According to Pew, 49% of the youth survey responded positive to socialism, while only 43% responded negative (18 - 29 years old).


When asked about capitalism, 47% responded negative, with 46% responding positive.


This staggering statistic shows the deeply embedded culture in America today that it is the responsibility of the government to take care of the people. If this is already embedded into the minds of the younger generation it paints a horrifying picture for the future of America.
