Multiple forms of socialism, from hard Stalinism to European redistribution, continue to fail.
Russia and China are still struggling with the legacy of genocidal communism. Eastern Europe still suffers after decades of Soviet-imposed socialist chaos.
Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea and Venezuela are unfree, poor and failed states. Baathism -- a synonym for pan-Arabic socialism -- ruined the postwar Middle East.

Low to no cost benefits for everybody. What a deal huh?
Why do polls show that a majority of American millennials have a favorable view of socialism?
Because Work is hard and doesn’t leave enough time to smoke weed, play video games and jack off with their buddies.
Because they don’t know history...
They have never been taught how to think critically, and have been told socialism is good and fair and wonderful while capitalism is mean and unfair and hateful.
Because theyre entitled little twits who have been brainwashed to think theyre special, work should come easy and only do what youre told or youre a racist homophobe nazi.
Because we have created at least two generations that know absolutely nothing other than they are the most special people to have ever walked the erf.
Socialists will explain that the only reason socialism has failed is because it hasn’t been done correctly and they will do it right if they’re in charge.
But the best explanation is this: the reason so many like socialism is because they haven’t tried it.
I think a lot of Millennials are confused about what the term “socialist” actually means. Does it just mean a totalitarian state that controls all the means of production (North Korea and USSR under Stalin)? Does it include countries like China that allow some private industry but still have authoritarian governments? Does it include Western European countries with their national health care? Hard to tell when the term “socialist” is thrown at anyone who disagrees with you these days, much like “racist”.
“Why do polls show that a majority of American millennials have a favorable view of socialism? “
Honestly, youthful idealism. It just hasn’t been crushed by real world life experience yet.
Because ‘T’ has been declining every generation for a hundred years or more:
Because they were raised in a world of anti-bullying campaigns, helicopter parents and participation trophies.
They were raised to believe life should be FAIR.
Which it never will or can be in a free, open, capitalist society.
So they are willing to turn to socialist tyrants to impose “fairness”.
Because millennials have been indoctrinated by commies during their entire education from kindergarten through college, duhh.
They have been indoctrinated by the teachers unions and kept ignorant by the media. Neither teach about what has happened in Venezuela over the last 20 years.
They believe that somehow there is that perfect manager who knows exactly how to allocate resources for the good of all.

Because what little they learn in school is taught by commie pubic school teachers that have never worked a day in their lives.
Because they are entitlement mentality snowflakes who don’t know how the real world works and couldn’t handle it if they did.
Entitlement. In addition to being indoctrinated while attending College they were also told that said indoctrination was earning them a valuable degree that would make them tons of moola. When the reality hit that degrees in womens studies or feminism in the dark ages or political science were worthless, the occupy Wall Street hit the fan.
What?!?! A worthless, expensive degree is worthless?!?!?! Why?!? Hey, when in doubt, turn to your indoctrination. It must be that capitalism!!! Yeah, that is it.
