College Student: My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us

Via Martin

Destroying the free market will undo what millions of people have died to achieve.

We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.

I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around.

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.

We Take Our High Standard of Living for Granted

  1. They are indeed "useful idiots" as Lenin called his Bolshevik dupes. They must be dumbdowned and kept ignorant in order to support socialism. And as a quote I've seen says, "socialism is not for the socialist", because the few will rule over you. They will have the prosperity and freedom, not you! --Ron W

  2. America, the only place in the world where people can check their EBT Balance on an $800.00 phone, and bitch about how the Govt. be holding them down. But, none of them own a pair of work boots, or are actively looking for work. How far we have fallen. I am sorry to say, we as a Nation are TOAST.
