    Five Economic Reforms Millennials Should Be Fighting For

    Five Economic Reforms Millennials Should Be Fighting For | Politics News | Rolling Stone

    In Rolling Stone this former Occupy wackobird gets full coverage with his tripe. Warner Todd Hudson sums it up best in Breitbart:

    "Recently Rolling Stone magazine published a story that urges the millennial generation to demand communism in America by eliminating private property, "guaranteeing" everyone a job and turning banks into state property. After finding some opposition on Twitter, the writer let loose some ideas that didn't make the cut of his article: "exterminate" the rich and take away their money and property.After reading the article published on January 3, one thing we learn from former Occupy Wall Street organizer Jesse A. Myerson is that he thinks things are bad in America today. America is so bad--or, as he so eruditely puts it, America "blows"--that he thinks it is time to institute some of the worst communist tropes in the anti-capitalist's bag of tricks, all the same boring ideas that have been proven disastrous everywhere they've been tried for over 100 years."

    'Rolling Stone' Writer Wants Communism, Redistributed Wealth

    All I can do is shake my head at these people....What is the matter with people today?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    It is the future, and it will be incredible. We just have to shake off the old, dying, conservative disasters of the last 40 years and move forward. This will be a repeat of the New Deal and Keynesian successes.

    I do think the job guarantee is something that needs to happen, along with universal healthcare.

    I also find it intellectually dishonest to just label something "communism" and hope to get a visceral reaction opposing it. How about you attack the man's proposals on the merits?

    What proposals? From what I read, and I did read the original article he wrote, his stance is, 'no property rights', 'money for nothing', 'government banks', and 'everyone just work for the government'.....You know what, the world has seen that, and it failed. It was called the Soviet Union.

    Not likely....At least I sure hope not...You want something? Go work for it.

    And the saddest thing of all? They actually believe that tripe.

    All I can say is that I'm glad I won't be around when it happens. I learned how to put 2 and 2 together in first grade. It seems that many adults can't do that these days. We're working hard at trying to reduce everything to the lowest common denominator, and it seems to be working.

    When I read the title I assumed things like "Student Loan Forgiveness" or free college... **** all that Commie ****. Don't tell me what to fight for, Rolling Stone, because I fight for my rights and nothing else.

    Yes, we should fight for more dependence on the state, less personal responsibility and less protection of human rights. I hear that is working out well so far. Shut the **** up Rolling Stone.
