Millennials want Socialism...

We surveyed America's largest generational cohort to ascertain their attitudes toward various political systems. The results were unsettling.

...But don't know how to define it.

Second Annual Report On U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism

In partnership with yougov

On November 2, we released our Second Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism. The poll confirmed that young Americans remain largely ignorant of the crimes of communist regimes and of the fact that Marxist ideology directly enables communist atrocities. The percentage of Millennials who would prefer socialism to capitalism is a full 10 points higher than that of the general population.

The significance of this finding cannot be overstated: the largest generation in America would rather live under socialism or communism than under a free market system that respects the rule of law, private property, and limited state intervention.
