Capitalism: a love story


Just turned it on to catch the end and they show a survey showing young people viewed capitalism just 4% better than socialism, kind of scared me.... Should I rent this movie or skip it

Young people are dumb. They claim to hate capitalism, but yet they love their iphones, laptops, cameras, etc..

They actually love capitalism, they don't know it.

"History" classes only teach what's on the LEAP tests.. The curriculum is:

1. fought the british
2. fought ourselves
3. fought the germans
4. fought the germans again
5. fought the vietnamese even though we shouldn't have
6. Obama was elected

Korean War, moon landing, communism, etc. are only covered if there is enough time AFTER the LEAP test, and before the solid week of pizza parties and movies before school lets out.

If you are under 30 and are a Conservative, you have no heart. If you are over 30 and are Liberal, you have no brain. Winston Churchill.

They'll grow up fast once they get jobs and start paying taxes.

What jobs? And only the rich need to pay taxes so most of them won't do that either.

that's pretty accurate. Im 27, and from grade school through college if world/us history was the subject, 95% of the time the semester would end sometime right after the civil rights act. Every damn time without fail the 80s were off limits. I loved history growing up and it would agitate me that I had to relearn that same stuff over and over and never get to the cold war.
