Is it any wonder why the majority of Millennials and Gen Z are progressives?

These are people who have never seen capitalism produce fair results. They grew up seeing the Dot Com bust of 2000, the Great Recession of 2008, and now the COVID recession.

 

They've seen massive job losses and stagnant wages for 30 years while the richest 1% of quadrupled their wealth over this same time.

 

They've seen the price of education, housing and healthcare increase tenfold while their disposable income has shrunk.

 

They've seen corrupt bankers escape liability while average citizens get a decade in jail for a bag of weed.

 

Why on earth would they ever defend this system? It's no wonder why young people want to burn it down and start over. Who can blame them?

    translation of your backassward oxymoron is that members of GenX are the progressives.

    They've seen it in the form of their parents being able to feed and clothe them. They've just ignored that reality because their public schools have told them too.

    Thats what your government "schools" have been pouring into their empty heads.

    This is one of the main reasons that our Founders left education up to ".....the states and the people respectively" (10th amendment).

    Carters so called "Department of Education" is straight out of Orwells book '1984'.
