As many as 44% of American Millennials would slightly reside in a socialist society than a capitalist one, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation mentioned in a report on US Attitudes in direction of Socialism, based mostly on knowledge offered by badysis and knowledge agency YouGov.
“Given the choice, most Americans would opt for a capitalist country. However, one third would prefer to live in a socialist nation. Millennials are the leading force behind this preference with more than four in ten opting for socialism,” the report reads.
According to the outcomes of the survey, carried out forward of the centennial anniversary of the Russian Socialist Revolution, one other seven p.c of Millennials opted for communism. Analysts say it might be defined by the truth that “53% of Millennials feel the US economy works against them.”
“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” Executive Director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation Marion Smith mentioned. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative,” she added.
At the identical time, the YouGov ballot additionally confirmed that “7 in 10 Millennials (like Americans as a whole) either don’t know the definition of communism or misidentify it.”
The survey, carried out in September and October 2017, concerned round 2,300 US residents aged over 16.
