Socialist teenagers want to save the world, but they can’t save themselves

When you don’t have to work for anything and someone else pays for everything, of course you think socialism is a good idea. Earn your keep and then you can tell us if you want to pay for someone else who won’t.

The Socialist Teenagers that Want to Save the World

Socialist teenagers who want to save the world should start by learning to save themselves, they could start by getting a job, start producing wealth and paying their bills, maybe then they can understand the value of things.

They have three, four, even five meals a day set for them without having to work for them; they do not pay for the roof over their heads, many have a brand-new car, but have contributed nothing to get it, much less pay for the U.S. highways on which they use their vehicles.

They have grown up in developed cities with thousands of job opportunities, have safe neighborhoods, with great police equipment, water supply, electricity, internet, gas, and markets with every product and brand imaginable, but they have never had to dedicate an hour of their lives to make all this happen. They live supported by their parents, but still, they are socialists and completely convinced that socialism is the best option for America, and of course, the world.

In 2018, according to a Gallup poll, 51% of young Americans favored socialism; and even, in a poll conducted by YouGov, 70% of young Americans said they would vote for a socialist, which speaks to the intrusion of Marxism in the classroom. Without paying taxes, without working, living in the sweetness of capitalism, the discourse of equality sounds very beautiful and just, although to take these teenage dreams to the real world is akin to a train moving a human body at 300 kilometers per hour.

In a forest in Idaho, in an unknown time, a man planted a gigantic apple tree to feed his family and his neighbors; he had decided that every day he would pick ten apples to feed his family, and so he lived in abundance with his wife and three daughters for a while, until his four hungry neighbors asked him to share his fruits; the man agreed, he even told them that he could help them plant other trees, or that they could take apples from his, but they did not want to, so they asked him to give them at least 10% of his harvest, to which he agreed, in order to help them.

Over time the neighbors continued to complain about the excess of apples that the man had, so they decided to form the community’s government as they were in the majority. Now the man had to give them 30% of his harvest, and although he did not feel comfortable with this he ended up agreeing to avoid a violent disagreement.

For a time they lived under these conditions until the people in the local government began to reproduce, the neighbors had children, and now they needed more apples and so the tax went from 30% to 40%, to 50%, until finally, it reached 70% because all the families had to be fed from the apple tree, and they called this “social justice.”
