Conservatives may be discouraged by the latest surveys confirming that nearly one half of millennials are receptive to living under socialism and equate capitalism with greed.
But instead we should use this as an opportunity to educate all Americans about failures of socialism.
Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson revealed at a Heritage Foundation event that between 2000 and 2012, “the rate of absolute poverty in the world fell by 50 percent.”
That “the poor in the world are getting rich at a rate that is absolutely unparalleled in all of human history.”
But unfortunately, young Americans are unlikely to hear this news.
Peterson says that because of the technological revolution, in order to attract attention and make money, the media is turning to the old journalism adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.”
They obsess over the latest school shooting and bloody street riot. And yet the rates of violent crime in the U.S. have actually plummeted in the last 50 years.
