Polls concerning the ideological beliefs of younger Americans are raising concerns about what might await the nation when these self-avowed socialists grow up and take over.
Polling data shows that notable percentages of younger Americans prefer socialism to capitalism (61 percent), support abolishing the police (33 percent), believe violent rioting and looting is “justified” (65 percent) and are accepting of activists “shouting down speakers” at college campuses (51 percent).
This is not good. It’s particularly troubling because this generation will soon control the levers of American power. As noted by journalist Megyn Kelly in a tweet posted Friday, this “cabal of idiots is coming for us” one day, and that’s “terrifying.”

She’d specifically been responding to a New York Post column by young conservative commentator Rav Arora that was written as a plea to this new generation.
Citing the polling data about America’s youth, Arora suggested that they’re currently lacking in critical thinking skills and desperately need to work to fix this.
As an example, he urged the youth to stop blindly accepting mainstream dogma. Take for instance the mainstream dogma about racial biases and “privileges.”
“What’s popular and culturally dominant isn’t always right. Oftentimes, trendy ideas turn out to be the exact opposite of what they purport. For example, the popular trend of racial bias training tends to reinforce rather than reduce racial stereotypes,” he wrote.
“Black Lives Matter leaders advocate for solutions — namely reducing police presence — that put more black lives in marginalized communities at risk. Never blindly ‘trust the experts’ or mindlessly do what is advertised as ‘anti-racist’ or ‘pro-LGBTQ.’ Skepticism is essential to temper the radical currents underlying the popular social movements of our time,” Arora added.
But also don’t forget the mainstream dogma about socialism/communism/Marxism.

A YouGov poll conducted on behalf of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation late last year found that 30 percent of Generation Z have a favorable view of Marxism, while 18 percent of Generation Z believe “communism is a fairer system than capitalism and deserves consideration in America.”
That they would believe this amid all the evidence concerning communism’s evil is astounding. At the time of the poll’s publication, it’d already been reported that Communist China was detaining Uighur Muslims in concentration camps and abusing them.
Even CNN, a far-left network, talked about the abuses at the time — and is continuing to talk about it to this day.
“This morning, shocking allegations of gang rape in detention camps in China. The U.S. government accuses China of the mass internment of up to 2 million members of mostly Muslim ethnic minority groups in recent years,” host Alisyn Camerota reported Friday.
“Part of a policy that the U.S. State Department says amounts to genocide. Beijing denies this, claiming the camps are vocational training centers aimed at creating jobs and stamping out Islamist extremism,” the CNN host added.
“Oh, my God, Ivan. What a devastating story. Just these hideous crimes and watching these women have to suffer through it. And so important for us to know about this and hear it,” Camerota said as the report concluded.
Meanwhile, Hollywood, Big Tech and the NBA, all of them beloved by young leftists, continue to conduct business with China as if everything’s perfectly OK.
It’s no surprise that young leftists, particularly those in America’s institutions, are seemingly indifferent to the tribulations in China, given that the political party they subscribe to has apparently been ambivalent about it.
“[T]he Western left has been oddly muted and non-confrontational against what is arguably this young century’s most egregious crime against humanity,” The New Republic, a far-left magazine, noted last summer.
“Other political coalitions have not hesitated to make their voices heard. While GOP luminaries like Senators Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio—and even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo—take the lead on pushing and crafting policies specifically highlighting CCP monstrosities, prominent Democratic voices, especially those on the leftier end of the spectrum, remain conspicuously absent,” the outlet noted at the time.
So if their preferred Democrat Party political leaders don’t care, why should they? This, sadly, seems to be the type of mentality that takes root when one stops thinking critically and starts blindly accepting the narratives pushed on them by others.
And the prevailing narrative has of course been that it’s bad to criticize China. After all, like left-wing hero and NBA star LeBron James claimed in 2019, “Yes, we do have freedom of speech, But at times, there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you’re not thinking about others, when you only think about yourself.”
The “ramifications” he meant were the financial ones suffered by the NBA when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey shared his support for the Hong Kong protesters who were being abused by China’s communist government.
