Generation Z has a more positive view of the word "socialism" than previous generations, and ‚ÄĒ along with millennials ‚ÄĒ are more likely to embrace socialistic policies and principles than past generations, according to a new Harris Poll given exclusively to Axios.
The word "socialism" does not carry the same stigma it did in the past, now that it has been resurrected by celebrity politicians like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Young people's political views often change as they grow older, but their support for socialistic policies is a sign that the old rules of politics are changing fast....
Obviously the American youth are enamoured by the starvation and utter chaos in neighbouring Venezuela, and further afield, the terrible dictatorship of Kim Jong Un in North Korea, and wish to inflict it on the United States. It looks as if Alexandria Ocala-Cortes and Senator Bernie Sanders are the models for these young people. Years of indoctrination on the godless secularist public schools and the state and even private secular universities have made their mark.
‚ÄúWisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?‚ÄĚ (Proverbs 1:20-22)
In other words, how long are you going to be stuck on stupid?

Liberalism is a modernist method of eradicating all authority institutions from society. EG: God, church, morals, family, marriage, government, law and order, ...... Ultimately relativism and the individual rules!!
A modern (Liberalist PC) perception of socialism is that it is relativism in government and society.
One of the reasons for socialism's new popularity is that the modern generation perceives the means within it to remove all these nasty authorities, to provide more freedom and less discrimination to the individual.
Some socialist entities such as the UK Labour party and the US Democrat party are quite happy to display this theory to gain votes from wherever (who cares).
Trouble is socialism eventually raises its Big Brother stalinesque despot party leadership and runs the lives of the credulous (gullible) supporters.
