“Socialists believe that everyone who works in a business should have a say in its operation.”
This is how socialism is being sold to college students, as if it is a more ‘fair’ economic system.

‘Dumb and obnoxious’: Socialist flyer found on campus gets ridiculed
At the University of California San Diego (UCSD), students oppose the socialist flyer put on display by the school’s Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) student organization.
“I first saw these posters when I was walking on my way to class,” McKenzy Tolliver told Campus Reform, noting that the socialist message didn’t appear to take into account that Californians already pay high taxes.
The flyer rhetorically asks “What is Socialism?” and states, “Socialism and Capitalism are economic. They deal with what your hob is and who is in charge. Capitalists believe that the workplace should operate like a dictatorship, where one person calls all the shots, the CEO.”
Campus Reform spoke with multiple UCSD students about the flyer, which the YDSA at UCSD chapter also posted on its Twitter.
“Socialism has always preached the idea that they believe in equality, but when it is put into practice, it usually gives everyone the opportunity to be equally poor,” San Diego student Jordan Eide said.
“Socialists believe that everyone who works in a business should have a say in its operation. Socialists believe we should have Democracy in the workplace. If you believe in Democracy, Freedom, and Equality, you are a Socialist,” the flyer continues.
