Please explain how that's the fault of capitalism and not society at large

There is zero empirical proof of that as of yet - the opposite is most likely true assuming normal growth.

Why can't both be at fault? Certainly capitalism plays a large role in our society.

I mean, if you want to show me some examples of communist countries that don't rule with an iron fist then I'll take a look

There are no "communist countries". There are socialist countries to one extent or another, but no "communist countries". That's just more fear-mongering propaganda that you've swallowed hook, line, and sinker - and cork.

But the burden is on YOU to provide proof that there are millennials out there, "literally asking to be ruled with an iron fist."

But it's neat how you come out with an outrageous claim, and then demand proof of others for making much more modest claims.

By "miseducated" do you mean "brainwashed?"

It has to be this.

NK isn't a communist country?

I know you progressives love to play the word change game, but it doesn't cover the truth.

They're saying they want to live under a system of government that always ends up ruling with an iron fist. This isn't difficult, man.


Now go on and regale me with tales about how true communism has never been enacted and would work if done properly.

Actually, millennials seriously failed capitalism.

Capitalism dictates that if you spend money on a worthless degree, like Gender Studies, there is a limited market for genderologists, and therefore you'll end up a barista unable to pay off your student loans.

Can you expand on this a little bit? For instance, try focusing on these things:

Has there ever been a better time to be alive than right now? If so, when? If not, what would you say is the single biggest contributing factor in shaping technology + international relations in the past..oh I dunno...250 years or so?

Ignorance.

When a lot of us were young, we knew about the atrocities committed by Communist regimes. If we didn't see it first-hand on the news, our parents told us about it. It was present-day events for us. For millennials, it is just some old history. History they believe they can correct "and do it right this time!"
