Millenials Are Sick Of Capitalism

Print Friendly

During a CNN Town Hall, Democratic House Rep Nancy Pelosi was caught off guard when a young man told her that more than half of Millennials aren’t exactly fans of capitalism. He had the stats to back it up: A Spring 2016 Harvard Institute of Politics poll of 3,000 Millennials found that 51 percent of them held this view. It’s no surprise this many Millennials shun capitalism given their massive student loan debts and difficulty in finding high paying jobs and affordable housing, among other struggles. But when he asked her if Dems could go farther left of right-wing views on capitalism, Pelosi’s reply only proves that her party needs to acknowledge how capitalism is destroying the world and its future if they want any hope of appealing to what could become one of the largest voting blocs in America. Lee Camp digs into Pelosi’s faux pas and more on the latest episode of Redacted Tonight.

    Boomers began going down in the 1980s, so who are all the liberals who have maintained the agenda of middle class elitism, no longer even recognizing the existence our our jobless poor?

    Wow, this is some journalism! I could have told you this nearly 60 years ago, after watching the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. How about something most progressives don’t know, like how Pelosi has spent her whole career as a Wall Street/corporatist toady. And especially how she and her husband have become fabulously rich serving their oligarchic masters.
