the term ‘Millennial’ has become a lazy, if convenient, shorthand for some vague notion of achingly cool, social media-savvy 20-somethings who refuse stable careers and drink smoothies all day.

a "conservative" view on gay marrige would have likely been a "liberal view"a some point in the past

Michael Roberts

the 2008 crash disillusioned hundreds of millions of people on democracy, and the state. 9/11 is used as a precedent for justifying xenophobia.
That will only strengthen their view.
these fucking welfare leeches preying on my taxes
immigrants coming in here shitting up neighbor hoods and schools
why can't deadbeats be as successful as me?
You think all those special snowflake sjw's stay like that after they graduate? They become capitalist shills once they enter the work force and conveniently forget about their struggles.

people tend to become more conservative as they grow older, and we don't have any data available yet that shows their views becoming more moderate.
More so just a response to the failing conditions of capitalism, the 2008 crash, and disillusionment with the establishment.
yeah we know, that's why you're a feminist.

And if there’s one thing people are learning about this young generation, it’s that they are liberal. Even leftist. Flirting with socialist. In Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, more than 80 percent of voters under 30 years old voted for Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist so outside the mainstream of his party that he’s not even a member.

Why are young people so liberal; what’s behind their revolutionary spirit; and how close are they to ushering in a true liberal political revolution?

they can't make up their minds whether millennials are liberal, conservative, socialist, or deplorable

GENERATION Z IS SUPER CONSERVATIVE GUISE TRUST OUR UNBIASED DAILY MAIL NEWSPAPER WHICH DEFINITELY ISN'T A RIGHT WING ASTROTURFING OUTFIT

Adrian Howard
Adrian Howard

Fascism is the old order responding to the rise of socialism, not to bad times. Fascism is capitalism in crisis.
There's also the fact that there very eldest of Gen Z are about 15 years old right now. They literally asked a bunch of middle schoolers what their opinions were on complex social issues and found them "conservative". These people haven't formed real political opinions yet.

Probably not. You're talking about the supposed political outlook of middle schoolers. It doesn't really mean fucking anything that people who are 15 at the oldest like to save money when they don't have any fucking expenses.

Also, there aren't any more jobs to sell out to. When these kids graduate, they'll know the joys of crippling debt on top of their minimum wage job. Not exactly the best environment for political conservatism to grow.

These right-wing fucks could at least wait for Gen Z to get out of their mother's apron strings before talking about what their political views are or are not.

Landon Price

These people don't have their own political views yet. Most of them are still in elementary and middle school. Their political views are that of their parents.

This entire survey was just about social attitudes, it doesn't mention economic policy at all.

Jace Rogers

Gen Z is commonly identified between 1995-10, so a portion of them are in university now including myself, and are of voting age.
they'll know the joys of crippling debt on top of their minimum wage job. Not exactly the best environment for political conservatism to grow.
Isn't this the exact same living conditions of cleetus in the rural bible belt, how come he's still conservative?

Grayson Watson
Grayson Watson

Because he thinks communism is just about burning down churches.

Hudson Butler
Hudson Butler

And social issues are usually a good reflection of what political party they're gonna support, the last election was entirely about social appeal, and social reforms, not economic policy. Look at /pol/, people who have become disillusioned with liberalism, and the left, not because of social democracy not working, but because of the identity politics.

Jace Hughes
Jace Hughes

No. This survey identifies "Gen Z" as anyone born after 2001. Actually read the article.

Isn't this the exact same living conditions of cleetus in the rural bible belt, how come he's still conservative?
The Bible Belt is conservative because of a stranglehold the church has on the social sphere. But the newer generations are progressively less religious, so fewer people are going to blame the fact that they're poor on Jesus being mad because we have gay marriage.

Luis Rodriguez

Yep, I've noticed that kids these days are dumb as fuck. I don't know why this is happening but it is happening.

Jace Morgan

Pretty much this . I don't think people actually read either article.

Lucas Morris

Sure the article says that, but in general they identify generation z as anyone from 95-10.
But the newer generations are progressively less religious, so fewer people are going to blame the fact that they're poor on Jesus being mad because we have gay marriage.
So they'll move to the next scapegoat, if there's no large outlets telling people to blame their problems on class antagonisms what do you think they're going to latch onto next?

I'm aware, I'm just saying that if they're already right wing it's not hard to see them becoming fascists in the next crisis

Like the DNVP supporting Hitler

Nolan Fisher

DNVP was already pretty nationalist. It was initially supported by some of the old order conservatives (the ones trying to restore the Kaiser) as a hedge against parties more extreme still. Of course, all did not go according to plan.

Lucas Cook
Lucas Cook

It doesn't matter what "most people" define Gen Z as. The article, and the survey, define them as being people on or after 2001. When this article and this survey refer to "Gen Z", they're talking about everyone born after 2001, ie - people who are no older than 15.

So they'll move to the next scapegoat, if there's no large outlets telling people to blame their problems on class antagonisms what do you think they're going to latch onto next?
Probably conservatives, because they'll be coming into adulthood after 4 years of a Trump presidency.

I'm aware, I'm just saying that if they're already right wing it's not hard to see them becoming fascists in the next crisis
They're not right wing. Try actually reading the article. These people are in middle school at the oldest. That fucking elementary and middle schoolers have conservative opinions means exactly dick.

James Wright

Throughout my early adolescence I went from a centrist establishment liberal to a soft-left liberal back to a centrist and then to a /pol/ tier lolbert. This was all in reaction to the sitting presidencies and the changing cultural attitudes at the time(both in the media and among peers) I was entirely changeable and didn't know shit about shit, nor did I care to. Poll these same kids after 4 years of Trump and see just how 'conservative' they are, there will be an entire new contrarian liberal 'counter-culture' that they will be tied to at that point.

That would certainly help. Generation Z uses the internet at a much earlier age than any generation previously, so it stands to reason that they encounter the loudest and most reactionary talking points. There's no doubt that there are a lot of kids who are emotionally invested in whatever the aut-right is saying, especially among white children.

This is why some of us kept telling you that teaming up with liberals, democrats, social democrats, etc. and letting them wear the mantle of "leftism" was a really bad fucking idea. We now have a situation where those awful ideologies are what the average person thinks of when they hear the term "left" or "socialist" or "communist" and they are, rightly, repulsed by it and go running to the right. Revolution was always the answer.

Liam Bailey

I would say, yes, it is. I've seen quite a few "recovering /pol/tard" posts here. A lot of them are autistic sheep, but at least a portion of them have a real vision against the current capitalist structure and are able to very clearly identify its oppressive nature (their biggest problem comes from misidentifiation as to the sources of the problem - they claim it is the jewish people not class oppression.) When I talk to SJWs in real life, forget it, they are completely and utterly indoctrinated beyond any sense of redemption and are on a completely different planet when it comes to what they are arguing for and the world they currently see. Logic is simply unworkable with them. Same when I talk to some of the older Democrats in my family, they generally like capitalist with a few social programs and will carry water for this system until the day they die.

A lot of liberal minorities who I'm close with have distanced themselves from SJWs and started to call them out on pointless idpol. This happened after that "protest" in various Chinatowns over the Chinese Dog Meat festival, where a bunch of white liberals thought that people in Chinatowns actually celebrated it. All it would take is for somebody to tell them to drop the 'liberal' moniker in exchange for calling themselves leftist.

I've seen /pol/yps posting about alternate currencies that resemble labor vouchers. Apparently the Nazis used labor backed money in Germany and thus were able to achieve Independence from the banks. I'm starting to think that Nazis are marxists who've failed to identify their enemies correctly. I feel like this could be used to convince AnCaps as well, since they are all about meme currencies.
