Rise of Socialism on Campus (Guest: Charlie Copeland of ISI)

Published October 7, 2019
According to a recent Axios poll, just 40 percent of Millennials and Generation Z have a favorable opinion of capitalism, 61 percent have a positive reaction to the word “socialism,” and half say they’d prefer to live in a socialist country. This is because socialism is sold as “compassionate.” As the right thing to do. As caring about the welfare of your fellow man – especially those struggling economically. How does the right battle that false perception? How do they communicate that socialism means the surrender of your liberty?
Despite the trends, Copeland explains why he is optimistic about the future, and why socialism does not have to be the future of America.
