Opinion | No Wonder Millennials Hate Capitalism

December 05 0 Comments Category: Facebook, Feed

“After the fall of Communism, capitalism came to seem like the modern world’s natural state, like the absence of ideology rather than an ideology itself. The Trump era is radicalizing because it makes the rotten morality behind our inequalities so manifest. It’s not just the occult magic of the market that’s enriching Ivanka Trump’s children while health insurance premiums soar and public school budgets wither. It’s the raw exercise of power by a tiny unaccountable minority that believes in its own superiority. You don’t have to want to abolish capitalism to understand why the prospect is tempting to a generation that’s being robbed.”

A generation maligned as entitled whiners will be particularly hard hit by the Republicans’ wretched tax bill.
