More than a third of millennials now approve of communism. Dennis Prager discusses why this disturbing fact is a result of the poor education system. Students today are not taught to understand the evils of communism and why it is a dangerous ideology.

Stalin killed way more people than Hitler. He makes Hitler look like a amateur. And Stalin killed his own people. People are blind and totally ignorant, they deserve to get what they asked for and once they feel the heels of the boot on their and their families necks it will be too late. Then they will understand.

Progressives aka socialists have ousted Peru's legally elected President. Los Angels Latinas for Trump! 🇨🇴🇨🇴🇨🇴🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Democratic Senator Byrd, and Joe Biden's mentor, was a KKK grand wizard whom voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act! Democrats created the poverty, crime and squalor that they offer solutions for in order to get-rich-quick in voter approved tax hike schemes. Democrats created ghettos in order to get black and minority votes. How? Well, after WWII banks refused to issue home loans to non-blacks in East Los Angeles suburbs. They also refused to give small business loans to businesses in East Los Angeles effectively preventing integration and tax revenues from entering the neighborhood. This is called slum-building. It's phase one of procuring black Democrat votes. Phase two is to blame Capitalism for their problems and offer socialism as a solution. Because people in ghettos are systematically and deliberately insulated from the benefits of Capitalism they can't see any value in Capitalism. But Democrats created the one percent in this country not Capitalism. Phase three is to recruit blacks and sympathetic whites to push the socialist agenda . Socialism is a lie, it doesn't exist anywhere on Earth! It's not free, it depresses the economy and it never delivers on what it promises. Socialism removes goods and services from the free market economy and consolidates them into mega monopolies which are exempted from government anti-trust laws and protected from prosecution. The profits from these monopolies are then stolen behind the veil of bureaucracy. That the Democratic party is the party of inclusion is the biggest lie ever perpetrated on the American people and on the world. Democrats opposed Republicans in freeing the slaves, in fact they wanted slavery to be legal worldwide. Democrats opposed the Republican lead suffragette movement to allow women to vote. Major donor of CNN and billionaire George Soros was a Nazi collaborator and is a communist. Racisits, fascists and communists are notorious for using minorities and disenfranchised people to do their dirty work and then allows them to take the fall if they get caught while the puppet masters hide behind plausible deniability!

As a millennial, I can honestly say school does brainwash and it makes it easy when young people are ignorant. I had teachers telling me that the right were selfish, hateful, crazy, racist. The students just eat it up without any further research. I actually tried talking to my best friend and shared my stance. 16 years of friendship are now gone. The right says, I disagree but we can still be friends, The left says agree with me or else. I grew up knowing what communism was. My father and his family had everything stolen from his family in Cuba. He escaped Cuba and was forced to leave family behind. Those left behind live in poverty, the buildings are collapsing and people are living in deplorable conditions. My dad has always told me how good I have it, and I have always known this to be true. Proud to be an American

I’ve just recently watched your fireside chats. I’m a Christian that associates with the Seventh-Day Adventist denomination. We also teach that true sons and daughters of God must adhere to the 10 commandments, which are spiritual laws, that you cannot truly obey without being filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve studied a lot and taught some on bible topics. Both old and New Testaments. I’m always amazed on how the old and new fit together so well, like a hand and glove. I also have a phone ministry where I teach a revolving group of 50 some people, using texting and email. But here’s a subject I’ve developed to help people see the Trinity in the Old Testament: First of all from Revelation: “From the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.” Revelation 4:5 Key points: this is the throne room of God. Right across from the throne are the seven lamps of fire. These seven lamps represent the seven spirits of God. The number 7 always represents perfection. This is the perfect spirit of God. In other words, the Holy Spirit. I hope you can see now where this is leading. In the earthly sanctuary, which was made after the pattern of the heavenly, after washing your hands and feet, representing spiritual cleansing, you then enter the Holy Place. To your right “on the sides of the north”, was a golden table where 2 stacks of flatbread were placed. On the left directly across from the flatbread was a lamp stand with seven lamps of fire. Do you see it now? The Holy place was God’s throne room. On the right (north) was the throne with 2 entities sitting on it. Directly across it, to the south, was the seven lamps burning with seven flames of God’s Holy Spirit. Entering further, you encounter the altar of incense, which represents the prayers of the saints, the saved. Then you pass through the veil. This veil has kept the message of the ark hidden from the Jews. It was only entered once a year to atone for the Israelites confessed sins with blood from a blood sacrifice. Now view the ark. And God now unveils the mystery of salvation. You have a wooden box. There are examples of trees representing people in the Old Testament. Such as a blind man was made to see. The first time was incomplete and he said I see what seems to be trees walking. Now this box is overlaid in gold, so when you look at it, you don’t see the wood, the people, but you only see the gold, the righteousness, the character of God (Christ). On top of the ark was a solid gold lid, the mercy seat. God’s mercy is all Devine without any human involvement. And blood was the acting agent that applies the contents of the box to the person seeking God’s mercy. Inside the box are three items. The 10 commandments, Aaron’s rod that budded, and a bowl of preserved manna. The 10 commandments: This represents the character that God’s children will have. Perfectly obedience to these 10 laws. Not by might, nor by strength, but by My Spirit, says the Lord. Aaron’s rod that budded: again we have an item of wood, a branch. This represents God’s people. And what happened to it? It budded. This shows new life coming out of dead wood. In the New Testament, Jesus said that unless you are “born again”, you will not enter the kingdom of God. A new life. We die to our old life. Like Lot’s wife. As she left Sodom, walking away from sin, she looked back and was destroyed. We leave behind our old life, and start a new life fully devoted to Jesus Christ and His Father. Our Father in Heaven. The pot of manna: Jesus was the bread from heaven. Jesus was the Word. As we take in Jesus’s words, we are fed with the bread from heaven. And these words give life.

What I want to know is what do they, and I’m a millennial myself, believe will happen or change from the current political system that is somehow better than what we already have? They clearly as always selectively ignore facts and figures to augment their own beliefs, ignore history, ignore politics and fundamental human behaviour. We are not an enlightened species that lives in harmony. We are chaotic and selfish by nature and that will NEVER change. So what do they think will happen? Citizen salary? Rainbows and unicorns?

Btw when you said something about nobody cares what College you go to. Its actually true! I was never asked what College I went to but asked what degree did I study. Nobody really cares because I think, people who go to Colleges lose their identity, parroting and acting the mindset of their Colleges. I see this all the time when I meet couple of people who brag about what College they went to then start exibiting attitides that are known for the College from either being an activist, a condescending prick so and so fort. So that maybe the reason why people dont ask. Because they think they are just opening themselves up for a person to show how much of an indoctrinated drone they are.

This is ignorance as to why Millenials approve of Communism since they have no knowldege of how Communism operates and what it does to its citizens. Its similar to Millenials in the Philippines easily believinv the revisionism being fed to them of the so called legacy of the late corrupt Ferdinand Marcos. Since they where not around during that time, they did not have any clue on what truly happened, so they are easily fooled by propaganda. Heck i think milenials dont even know what propaganda is

I will explain why you don't want communism. Under communism you have no choice, The state decides for you. If the state wants you to be a pig farmer in the middle of nowhere that is what you will do. Under communism you do not get to own anything. Everything you have is owned by the state. If for example you decide to build a boat and you do all the work yourself, it does not matter; the boat is not yours, it belongs to the state. Under communism you will have no say in anything. The only people who have any say are members of the party and they are less than 5% of the population. Their say is also extreemly limited since it cannot wander outside of party guidelines which are completely inflexible. You will not have greater wealth under communism. You will by all measures be poorer. You will not have more power. you will have no power at all.

Easy answer. Because we don't have an opportunity to work hard to succeed. Our parents generation has hogged all of the good jobs for way to long. So what's the simple answer. Take from them and give to us. This is such a wrong way of seeing things though. When they were out age they went threw the same issues. Though they didnt have it quite as hard. Higher education was cheaper and housing was also much cheaper. However their taxes were higher. And Loans had much higher interest rates. So not everything was great. Plus we tend to look at the past with 20/20 vision and look at all the good things that happened and forget all the bad. Where we currently live through both the good and the bad. Then add in the future is uncertain. Which for some reason always seems to have a gloomy picture.

Strawman argument I am a millenial and nobody I know is for communism. Furthermore the communist parties less than 1% of the votes in any election of the western world and is therefore a fringe idea less popular than young earth creationism. But please prove me wrong and show me the statistics on where communism is on the rise.

If you consider the manipulations of Hitler and Stalin, you know that they are very very similar. You must remove any role of the church which allows for the justification of evil behaviour to attain your goals. Then you must remove the roles and influence of the parents in family from the children and replace it with the government. This is done by utilising the education system to brainwash and corrupt the minds of the children. Lastly is a total takeover of the media by the government or the corrupt agencies to control information flow and only allow the corrupt and evil narrative to be communicated. This is exactly what the liberals the of the Democratic Party have done since 1965. It is a blatant and overt program of lies and deceit. The ultimate goal is power and money. Given that the leaders of the Democratic Party, most of whom have never had anything but a government job, live in multi million dollar mansions which is unattainable with a government salary, there's no question but that they obtained those mansions and other millions via nefarious means. The danger is very very real and is being played out before our eyes.

Huh. Did our families teach our children to hate America and love communism? No. Did our places of worship (Church) teach our children to hate America and love communism? No. Did our children's sports coaches teach our children to hate America and love communism? No. Did the entertainment industry teach our children to hate America and love communism? Maybe a little, but they certainly didn't indoctrinate them. Then who taught our children to hate America and love communism? Who else has a MAJOR influence over our children's lives? Think, now. I'll give you a hint: YOU PAY THEIR SALARIES! And their lifetime requirement at age 55 after working 177 days a year for 20 years. You guessed it! AMERICA'S TEACHERS taught our children to hate America, that we were NAZIS and Racists, and to love communism? Pubic school right through college professors. And YOU paid for it, folks! Think of that next time your teacher sits across from you at a Parent-Teacher's conference. Think: "Communist Propagandist!" And "Professional Failure!" They deliver American students who score worldwide #36th in math, #17th in science and #12th in reading. Is that success? Oh, don't worry: T

Howdy, communist here. Just wanted to say the reason I'm communist is because I believe in democracy and the rights of every individual. I believe the US is 100% up to the task of becoming the most successful communist country in the history of the world. With all we've accomplished, I just believe capitalism is holding us back from future endeavors (ending hunger, ending homelessness, and ensuring workers right among some). My opinion isn't unique and is shared with many of my fellow comrades.

I am a millennial and do not support communism or socialism. BUT I think that the people who are supporting it are being taught that it means free things. The idealized notion of you just getting free things and living in a commune type setting is what most of the millennials I know think they are going to get. They don't fully understand the history, as we really weren't taught it well in public school, but the left is also romantizing it as a NEW socialism. Not having to work, more time for leisure, and getting all the health care, food, etc that they want. The lies have told them that is possible, despite the fact it doesn't work that way. But main stream media is great at spinning things.

Leftists are Leftists because they feel entitled to more than they produce. Starting tomorrow a Leftist could go out and get a second or third job providing the earned resources to those in-need. But, they don't do this. As a matter of fact, they usually claim they work too much. No, a Leftist wants to be kind and compassionate via the hard work and resources of others. They claim they want abundant resources shared. But, how many Leftists do you know living the brand with one kidney after donating the spare? How many are raising an orphan? They're all about compassion just as long as someone else is forced to pay and others do the actual compassionate works. Entitled to more than they produce... They want free healthcare, housing, food, education, mental health care, etc. Where on earth is the earning part of the equation? Well, per the mindset, the Leftist "feels" and that's their part of the production phase. It's like a, "I think therefore you owe me." Every day trillions of dollars get exchanged on capital markets across the globe completely voluntarily. And yet, I cannot recall one web site which hosts a waiting list for people wanting to join a commune. What works, works. What doesn't work doesn't exist.

@8:03 thank you Mr. Prager for visiting Cambodia and making it your business to understand how suffering Cambodian people went through during the Khmer Rouge Genocide (1975-1979) that killed over 2m people. Communism promises utopia and the communist leaders claim to fight for fairer and more just society. Who wouldn’t want that? It’s good in theory but a calamity in practice. My dad always says “Don’t listen to what they say, watch what they do.” JFK put it best “Those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside”.

one reason that no one is learning this is because they make history really really really boring. It's so boring that it feels like they try to make it as boring as possible.

I think communism is right. People have been tricked into believing it is an evil ideology that removes human rights while that's completely false. In reality, communism has actual good aims and ideas, but not many people really know them.

They support it because they fell for student loan debt, their teachers and the education system encourage communism, and they're ready to flip the tables that got them here in hopes of something better. I'm a millennial and I'm in the same boat but don't support it because my dad fled a communist country for me to be here and I know where communism goes.

This is a great talk, of course, Dennis often makes me think. Regarding kids getting taught Communism in school. There has to be millions of parents in this observing the results of their own kids coming home with this learning. As parents do they Ever Ask, what did you learn today? Do they ever notice behavioral changes in attitude, thought or even strange comments from these teachings? Surely there is discussion of all the above, or? Do the parents even care, have time, create time with the kids. To busy? Go to school and see in person what's going on in the classroom? Proactive.....anything, really? Need help here to see and understand.

You are missing so much that matters, you are cant see the forest for the trees in the way. Jesus is all that matters. You've chosen to reject Christ and in rejecting him, you reject God The moment Christ died on the cross, the Jewish religion was wiped away. It ceased to be the way to God. This is not a personal attack

They don't support communism...... They support the ultra-left so-called democratic socialism fantasy which the leftists Germans have brainwashed many Americans into believing is good because that's the narrative that Merkel's leftist Germany wants to push. REAL communism, like in the Soviet Union...... there were no name brand luxury goods, food was made from scratch, no pre packaged meals or fast food..... All working aged people worked.... if you didn't have a job, they assigned you one, if you refused it, they sent you to the collective farms..... There was no such thing as sitting on the sofa and collecting an unemployment check..... Also, Stalin and Mao were traditional, they believed in the mother + father family unit..... they wouldn't be down with the ultra-left gender politics..... So it's not communism.... its Ultra-Left socialism...... with a sprinkle of anarchism from the antifa terrorists......

The host interviewed to Rachelle Peterson who is the Director of Policy, National Association of Scholars on the infamous "Confucius Institutes."

I can understand why white milenials want to try communism. They want this and that free for which they gone be worked for coasy free. But I can't understand why black or brown people want communist. It is stoning. They don't know how they are treated in communist countries. If they think they are going to be treated differently in US is delusional. Now they are protected by the constitution, but when that is gone they'll get the communism treatment that they can't refuse. I feel very sorry for the Black Americans and dark people. I have tears in my eyes...they don't deserve this ...they have been suferrig since their existence...very sad for humanity and the only place on Earth for hope.

Not this millennial. But then again I have "White Privilege" because my dad and mom raised me (and still married for over 30 years), grew up in the "safe" suburbs (although went to school with multiple races and disabilities), and was taught to respect police (my elementary had multiple assemblies led by police and first responders that showed K9 demonstrations, cruiser tours, fire truck tours and exercises) The problem isn't a generation, it's the things they are or, more likely, not taught at home and in school.

Required reading should be The Gulag Archipelago. The condensed version is 900 pages but it spells out exactly what happens under Communism. Other reading would be The Rise and Fall if the Third Reich, anything on the Cultural Revolution, the Great Leap Forward, Kulakization, the Killing Fields, ect, ect. Liberty is RARE, fight to preserve it!!
