Students at Georgetown Say Socialism is All About Inclusivity and Kindness

Students at Georgetown Say Socialism is All About Inclusivity and Kindness

“[Socialism is] supposed to be restoration. If you have something, it’s OK to give out and help others”

This generation has been raised to believe that nothing is more important than fairness and equality of outcome. Is it any surprise that they view socialism in this way? They were groomed to think this.

The Daily Signal reports:

Socialism All About Inclusivity and Kindness, These Students Say

The word “socialism” has left behind its past of breadlines and beatings and has come to mean something like “kindness” for some students at Georgetown University, The Daily Signal found in campus interviews.

Many millennials would agree with the positive feelings these university students have for socialism.

According to a new YouGov survey commissioned by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, over 50% of millennials say they are “somewhat likely” to vote for a socialist candidate. Another 20% say they are “extremely likely” to vote for a socialist.

“Socialism means multiple people coming together for the benefit of the most instead of the benefit of those contributing the most,” sophomore Darby Bupp, 19, a government major from Piqua, Ohio, told The Daily Signal.

Stephanie Galvan, 21, a senior from Houston, Texas, had a similar perspective.

“[Socialism is] supposed to be restoration. If you have something, it’s OK to give out and help others,” Galvan, a neurobiology major, said…

“I don’t think the USSR was a perfect version of socialism,” said international politics senior Adam Harrison, 22. “I don’t think they truly adhered to socialism or communism.”

Yes. They’ve been lied to since they were babies. And they’re so naive they actually believe the lies. How will they ever become responsible adults?

    “”How will they ever become responsible adults?””

    By actually getting their own way and then having to live with it.

The problem is when they run out of “other people’s money” to quote lady Thatcher. Then they will have to use guns, perhaps by proxy but they don’t seem to like the police or military either.

It starts with Hayek’s road to Surfdom, but that road ends going to the Gulag.

I’d like to see a video of college students who aren’t stupid. Is one available…anywhere?

Don’t they teach history at Georgetown? To the idiot who says it’s OK to give out and help others, the whole point of socialism is the govt seizes property belonging to people and gives it to others.

And I’m speechless that a student in international politics would make such a ridiculous statement.

Obviously a degree from Georgetown is worth no more than the paper it’s printed on.

“I don’t think the USSR was a perfect version of socialism,” said international politics senior Adam Harrison, 22. “I don’t think they truly adhered to socialism or communism.”

And Adam Harrison will tell us how to “truly adhere” to socialism or communism?

This is one more example of “next time we’ll do it right.” Unfortunately, they never do.

If this is an example of how political science major at an elite university is thinking, we are doomed if we keep handing power over to the elites.

If you have something, it’s OK to give out and help others

So our contributions to the socialist state are voluntary, not coerced by, I don’t know, revenue agents with guns and power of arrest?

    Christianity would fill in for inclusivity, kindness and charity-
    without the control and, er, forced participation in “charity”.

If you have something, it’s OK to give out and help others
Yes, that’s called charity. Unfortunately for your line of thinking, it only exists in a free market, not a ‘socialist’ one.

“It is in the character of very few men to honor, without envy, a friend who has prospered.” – Aeschylus

It all boils down to envy. All the high-minded rhetoric about inclusivity/fairness/etc just floats over the pot like a smokescreen. A cloud of intellectual methamphetamine inhaled open-mouthed.
