This Is What a ‘Socialist Utopia’ Really Looks Like

According to a newly released survey conducted to assess American attitudes toward socialism, nearly half of American millennials said they would rather live in a socialist country than a capitalist one. Some even said they would prefer to live in a communist country.

“It seems that the majority of America’s largest generation would prefer to live in a socialist or communism society than in a free enterprise system that respects the rule of law, private property, and limited government. This is even more disconcerting when coupled with the fact that, despite Millennials’ enthusiasm for socialism and communism, they do not, in fact, know what those terms mean,” wrote The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) in response to the survey’s findings.

Here are a few more notable findings from the poll:

  • While 57 percent of all Americans have a “very unfavorable” view of communism, that view is shared by just 37 percent of millennials.
  • 53 percent of millennials believe America’s economic system works against them.
  • Nearly half of Generation Z say they would vote for a socialist; 1 in 5 say they would vote for a communist.
  • 32 percent of millennials believe more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin.
  • Up to 42 percent of millennials are unfamiliar with communist leaders such as Mao, Stalin, and Lenin.
  • 75 percent of Americans do not realize the more than 100 million people were killed by communist regimes.

    On today’s show, Glenn returned to the chalkboard to continue this week’s in-depth look into socialism. History is littered with the ruins of the “Utopian socialists dream” gone wrong, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or USSR, is one example.

“Russia. Stalin went to work in Russia. [He created] the socialist utopia that Carl Marx, and then Lenin dreamed of. All major industry was taken over by the state, and prices were fixed,” explained Glenn, adding, “It wasn’t a pretty picture.”
