Kennedy: Why is Socialism Winning?
Socialism is more popular than ever, especially among young people, who view it far more favorably than they do capitalism. For voters of Andrew Gillum, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others, socialism is seen as moral while capitalism is perceived as cruel and only benefiting a few.
And even if they avoid the term, many support socialist ideas such as universal healthcare, despite clear evidence it leads to higher costs and lower quality care. People know socialism fails yet they support it anyway. Why?
