Some are just rebelling against western society, others are brainwashed by the school system. The people who love communism tend to live sheltered lives, have never even met someone from a communist country let alone experienced one first hand, and they have no idea what it's actually like, they just think it was some kind of utopia where everyone gets a job, place to live, and everyone lives in equality.
Put a pretty face and talk real nice and people will believe anything you are pedaling.
It seems that the people with money and the people without any are the ones who are in favor of socialism.
The ones in the middle who are working, paying their bills and for the bills of others don't even have a voice in
this. Bernie Sanders became a millionaire off the backs of others so the capitalist system seems to have worked for him. What is happening with his wife's situation? We don't hear much about that anymore.
Blaming socialism for that is like stubbing your toe while eating peanut butter and blaming the butter for it. Socialism is by no means better, in fact every system has major flaws, you can't win no matter what, there will always be disadvantaged people. If everyone was rich no one would want to be a janitor, a trashman, a sewer cleaner and whatnot.
Top 10 socialist countries:
Given the success of 9/10 of those countries ... I think the answer is obvious why "socialism gets a pass".
Even China is experiencing a growing economy, growing middle class, and growing freedoms (as long as you don't speak out against the government too loudly).
The government does not own the means of production in any of those countries, even China. But although China got a measure of wealth by embracing capitalism, it does have many of the classic traits of far left socialism, like a shocking disregard for the rights of its political opponents.
A new report says that people whose views conflict with the ruling Chinese Communist Party are being murdered for their organs.
Denmark Tells Bernie Sanders It's Had Enough Of His 'Socialist' Slurs
The Danes apparently have grown weary of Sen. Bernie Sanders insulting their country. Denmark is not a socialist nation, says its prime minister. It has a "market economy."
The Nordic Democratic-Socialist Myth
Currently, Nordic-style democratic socialism is all the rage among Democrat activists as well as with liberal intellectuals and journalists. But in the Nordic countries themselves, this ideal has gradually lost its appeal. Only one of the five Nordic countries, Sweden, currently has a government headed by social democrats. The other four countries have center-right governments. Moreover, the Swedish Social Democrats enjoy weaker popular support today than at any point in modern times. They lead a minority government, as the majority of Swedes either support one of the center-right parties or the anti-immigration party.
