How many socialism supporters would change their minds completely once they learned what socialism and capitalism actually are? Watch to see what happened when they talked to Will Witt!

I think everyone has a slight different to different view on what socialism is. Probably good idea to specifically define what it is before you ask people if they are or not.

It's no education here.... your probably referring to a dictatorship or on a lesser level communnism. A universal health care system is not the dmv it's for all It's better than a system where millions are not covered or undercovered. Where one illness can put you in debt for the rest of your life. Where people can't afford a simple hospital visit. He needs to " educate" himself. It's funny how people play the educate themselves card when they have no idea what they are talking about. The only good thing i seen here was how easily collage students were swayed into believing half baked ideas.....imagine what a full political system can make them believe

No it's nothing about you choose and the government making you give people phones. Workers control the means of production. Profits are distributed more evenly. You could have a situation where the workers own the factory and they share in the profits more evenly as opppsed to captailism where it's all about profit over people where the worker is wage slave ...and most of the profit goes the a very few elites. That's why a handful of people have more wealth than the 50% of the world population. In socialism you can still make profit it's just that insted of a few billionaires getting most of the profit the wealth will be distributed more evenly. Insted off 100million profit you will only make 60 for example or whatever the case may be.

PragerU was founded by money from the Wilks brothers, fracking billionaires. Fracking technology was made possible by decades of R&D development paid for by US taxpayers via the Energy Department. The millions given to PragerU by the Wilks and other billionaires are also treated as charitable donations to a non-profit, so are not taxed, meaning that taxpayers not only subsidized the wealth that enabled PragerU but are denied the taxes on the money that supports PragerU. In sum, Will Witt is essentially a socialist state employee, yet has the nerve to lecture us on the "free market."

That's why I'm not to worried about these socialism polls. Very few know what it is. Let them get a job and start paying taxes and watch things change. Government and our politicians are a total disaster yet people want them to take over more of our lives. It's actually comforting to know they have to play w the definition of words & lie to gain much support. I already see cracks in this nonsense & support fading.

Socialism is when the workers control the means of production. Instead of having a private owner control the workplace with what is essentially absolute power, the workers, the ones who actually do the bulk of the work, have the power to make decisions within that company. Instead of letting a board of executives decide to outsource their labour to Bangladesh and lay off workers while giving themselves big bonuses, the workers can decide to veto this and elect their own managers instead. This is essentially what socialism means. Of course there are thousands of different ways of establishing socialism but it starts with workplace democracy.

The problem with this video is not that it is unable to define socialism - although it absolutely is true that the students interviewed are worse than even the layman on the streets. Another problem is that the video does not admit that a large proportion of urban Americans of color hate capitalism and the rapidly growing wealth inequality it has produced since the 1970s to such an extent that they prefer anything to “hypercapitalism” and the present rapid enrichment of the richest one percent. Another problem is that the media - which was criticised for its liberal bias three decades ago - offers no opportunity for these people to hear groups who really want radically different policies that would cap the wealth of the richest one percent at around five orders of magnitude less than they earn today. These groups simply cannot gain enough funding from the poor majority to compete with corporate-funded conservative (Democratic) and far-right (Republican) parties - chiefly because poor white Americans have never been willing to cooperate with their essential allies from other races. It is these groups who can define “socialism” as it was originally defined - as a system of direct worker control without bosses and profits, as proposed by groups like Socialist Alternative ( or the Socialist Equality Party (

1. Capitalism is an economy in which the means of production are privately controlled in a market economy. 2. Socialism is when the workers democratically control the means of production

No need to define socialism. Anything with a D is socialism. Socialism is evil just like Russia, which unfortunately is run by Putin, a dear pal of Trump. But if Trump supports PUtin and indirectly supports socialism, I have to rethnk socialism. If Trump sees nothing wrong, then I see nothing wrong too. I hear that Trump like Russia so much, he may move his entire family to Russia. So I am now a conditional socialist. Once Trump settles in Moscow, count me in. Socialism is great because my lord and master Trump is now living in Russia. Trump is never wrong. I am a loyal Trump man and will never go against the king.

Socialism doesn't really equal government doing stuff. In Saudi Arabia the government does a lot of stuff and we don't call them socialist. Socialism just means worker ownership of the means of productions. State ownership can be kind of a way to do this assuming that it's a democratic structure where everyone can participate. But there's other ways to do it, like direct worker ownership of the means of productions.

Socialism is the government doing its job, of taking care of all the people and not just the rich. Pager U is just a bunch of idiots without a philosophy, all they have is an anti-philosophy, just like the Nazis. The US is the biggest socialist country in the world, social security, Medicare, unemployment payments. We in Europe have many socialist countries. Come to Switzerland and do your interviews there or the Netherlands, you morons. All you are trying to do is sow seeds of discord and conflict over nothing. You are all a bunch stupid followers of a nothing.

Oh, I get it. So you premise the video with a "statistic" (70% of young people would vote for socialism) without citing where you got that statistic, or defining what "socialist" candidates they would vote for (keep in mind, many Americans think Biden is Leftwing/Socialist which is demonstrably untrue). You then asked a bunch of random people, who may not give a crap about politics, what they thought socialism was. If this 70% statistic came from a real study, then it stands to reason that those taking part were actually interested in politics and not just randoms off the street, this makes your sample unreliable. This is before we even get into whether you cherry picked who made it into this video, I mean the girl at :37 didn't even know what you were on about for goodness sake, which suggests you didn't even properly prime her. In any case, this was lazy, cynical and didn't actually prove anything other than your own biases or your inability to cite studies and properly carry out your own.
