Millennials Apparently Prefer Starvation, Food Lines to Income Inequality

It's absurd that anyone can be a socialist after seeing its perfect record of horror, the latest example being Venezuela. Perhaps people simply aren't well-informed about poverty being the inevitable result of socialist policies.

Well ... maybe they actually are:

Uh oh.

Someone asked Ami Horowitz, who made the video, if he simply didn't show the people who clearly understood. His answer, in the comments:

[V]ery rarely. These represent the vast majority.

Let that sink in for a second.

These people -- all millennials -- are told by Ami that there is starvation and horror in Venezuela. Yet all of these people still think it's better for everyone to be struggling for survival than for any single person to amass more than anyone else.

I used to think that socialists were just jealous. They looked at a Bill Gates or a Warren Buffett or even a Donald Trump, and thought: "It's not right that they have that and I don't."

But these people indicate that they understand how horrible things are in Venezuela. That starvation was normal. And yet they still see that outcome as preferable to liberty, which has produced the highest baseline standard of living humanity has ever seen.

Typical socialists are not misguided fools or "useful idiots." They are not simply besotted with the ideology, picturing everyone living in middle-class homes if only we would adopt their plans. Nope. This is pure and simple evil. We knew the ideology was evil, but understanding that people will suffer and die and still supporting it points to the person being filled with evil as well.
