Socialism: They Don’t Know What It Is, But They Like It (Video)
I just had a horrible thought: you could probably crank a hit song out of that, I Don’t Know What It Is, But I Like It.
Here are a bunch of collidge stodents being asked about socialism. They’re all in favor of it, big-time. They also don’t know what it is, and are totally stumped when asked to define or describe it. “If it’s helping people, I’m for it.” Brilliant. Your tuition dollars at work.

College, college, college… hmmm… Hey! I think I know what happened to that Indus Valley civilization! College happened to it.
As written at Campus Reform:
Ask most college students, and they’ll tell you that socialism is a wonderful thing. Just don’t ask them to define it, because you’ll get the same answer.
Last year, a poll was released showing 53 percent of Americans under age 35 are dissatisfied with our nation’s current economic system and think socialism would be good for the country.
The same poll found that 45 percent of young Americans would be willing to support an openly socialist Presidential candidate.
The findings of this poll coincide with the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed “Democratic Socialist” from Vermont who received millions of votes in the 2016 Democratic Primary, many of them from millennials.
While it’s clear that young people increasingly view socialism in a positive light, it’s also clear that many of them are uneducated about what it entails, or the impact it’s had throughout history.
