Why is communism so popular among youth ? From what I understand commies want to seize the means of production from the bourgeoisie but most commies I see are unskilled workers working retail/ fast food gigs. What would those types even do after the revolution ?

When teenagers finally move out of their parent's home they experience a unprecedented sense of freedom, and want to try all sorts of new things in their rebellious youth. This might be drugs like marijuana, new forms of sexuality like homosexuality or threesomes, or alternate political ideologies like communism. Communism is just rebellious enough to appear both simultaneous against "the man" and the evil system whilst also remaining mainstream enough to be accepted by your fellow students, unlike Fascism which is too radical and not trendy.

Young people are used to living with their parents, where everything is paid for. They have spent 18-20 years living in that system, which can be equated to Communism; so they embrace it when they move out on their own.

The very, very simple way to prevent that from happening is to start having your children earn their way early in life. Around 12 years old is a good starting point. If they want to share in the nice dinner you've prepared, make them do a load of laundry. If they need some money for the movies, make them mow the lawn.

Chores are an essential part of childhood that too many have abandoned these days. It teaches kids not only that work has value, but that there are consequences for not working.

Kids like being given free stuff. Most of them get everything for free into young adulthood. They can't deal with the real world where work is required to be successful.

Given the conditions people are raised, communism is a logical default.

Grayson Lopez

People in lower economic conditions tend to try and move up the economic food chain. Taking rich people's wealth and redistributing in a communist revolution would cause their personal wealth to increase. Young people tend to be less wealthy, and therefore more susceptible to this kind of thinking.
It's pretty basic human psychology when you think about it.

Well imagine a system, where everyone earns the same.

They only forget that equality does not mean everyone gets one, it will be hard for them if the state won't buy the newest iPhone every year.

It's a secular cult that appeals to the hopelessly naive.

Just imagine a world where all economic activity were regulated such that every member of society were guaranteed food, shelter, and employment. Clearly, an impartial bureaucracy staffed by dedicated members of the party is the best way to achieve these ends. Communism offers all the fluffy utopian dreams associated with religion without any appeals to gods or an afterlife.

"everyone should be equal" sounds nice when you're young and naive. That's about it.
Communists have also been memed into being quirky and lovable by popular culture, ever since the cold war ended.
And it's rebellious in a safe way. You get to appropriate all kinds of cool looking iconography, and you wont be shunned by polite society like you would be if you became a Nazi for example. I always see dumb teenagers walking around with communist hammer and sicle or che guevara t-shirts. This is acceptable, while wearing a swastica would get them beaten up, or arrested in some parts of the world.

Lots of upper middle class white kids that have never had to deal with real diversity champion it because they have nothing going on in their lives and think that everybody is the same.

They get to read 40 books while being commies.

The last book is always the book that would have explained how to really do communism right.

But at that point there's always a new commie purge because it's all dreamed up by jews, and jews never had civilization and therefore civilization always rejects their mad ideas in the end.

The white golem good goy will receive a letter in their mail stating.
"Oy vey, what a shame bubbele. One book away and you could have explained everything. Well it's not safe in this country for us anymore. Well be going underground and away now. "

A second later the commie purge squad barges into the room and purges the commie.

Another successful brother war, comrades.

so they embrace it when they move out on their own.

But communism is about mandatore working as employee of state/society for everyone.

It teaches kids not only that work has value

Like in USSR. Commie like spreading bullshit about hard working.

but that there are consequences for not working.

In USSR commie put you in the prison if you not working.

US kids have imaginary communism and refuse to see what happens in communist countries. "It's not real communism!"

USSR-loving jerks say, that post-ussr kids become lazy because of western liberal culture of money and fun, that US corrupt post-ussr kids with drugs, sex and rock'n'roll.

When I was 13 I considered myself a communist but I never actually read anything about it. The main appeals were
1. being edgy and contrarian
2. being edgy and contrarian
3. being edgy and contrarian
4. wanting the best for people
5. seeing injustice in the world and thinking it would end when people were equal
6. learning about government corruption and the actual reason for the neocon wars in the ME (oil, corporate profits) makes you hate capitalists

When you are told every day that equality is the ideal in every endeavor then the idea of making everybody equal seems inherently good. Blame education for not teaching children that
EQUALITY IS A FALSE GOD

being edgy and contrarian is a major draw for NatSoc too except this ideology actually works and benefits people

Rebellion. Mommy and Daddy aren't with it so it must be the hip cool thing to do.

Teen angst. "Everyone's fault but mine, the 1%, not my fault I can't get a job!"

Juvenile ego stroking. "Everyone's dumb but me, I know what works for an economy!"

The last ones are the best because they can typically quote seven or eight "great" communist thinkers but can't right a check. They can tell you why private capital ownership is the end of the world but haven't got a can of beans to their name. They know what's wrong with "corporate" america but couldn't even hold down a job cleaning their room for chicken tenders.

Why is communism so popular among youth ?

Because they're coming up in a world of broken promises. Mom & Dad came up when a guy with a H.S. education could afford to own a home, a car (or two), start and support a family, and retire comfortably. Mom & Dad told little Tyler or Ashley or Kyle or Brittany or Aiden that if they went to college, they would end up running the world. Well, those dumbasses just figured that "going to college" meant they could go through the motions, get a degree in Gender Studies or African-American Issues or English Literature, and that they'd land on Easy Street and that their high-paying job would entail spending lots of time browsing Reddit and staring thoughtfully out the window while the solve the worlds problems.

Turns out, the world doesn't work quite like that. College costs money. Money that they don't have, because they went to school for bullshit reasons and can't find a job. So, now they're saddled with $X of debt and have no real way of paying it off. They look, and see that other people managed to somehow get by and make a life, and those people are the enemy because they have things. Things that the pissy little millennials want but can't afford because they spent money they didn't have on something they didn't need and will likely never be able to pay back.

In the meantime, they're slinging burgers at McDonald's, or double triple mocha half calf lattes with pumpkin spice at Starbucks, still living with Mom & Dad, and will likely never amount to shit because their entire existence is consumed with coveting that which they can never have.

Luckily, for them, there is an ideology out there that says they are oppressed, not idiots; that they have been robbed, not that they have made incredibly poor decisions; that they deserve all the things that people who worked for those things have - and that they would be perfectly justified in (indeed, that they would be heroes for) killing those people in order to take those things from them.

That ideology is Communism.

What none of them understand is that when their Glorious Revolution comes (lel), they're not going to reach a point where somebody's going to have to put the brakes on while they go track down that guy who used to make the die-hard posts on Reddit or /leftypol/ so that they can get their next marching orders. Assuming they survived, they'd get chained to a machine that churns out whatevers for the glory of THE PARTY, and they'd meet their quota, or they'd get shot in the parking lot at break time like anyone else.

These dumbasses honestly believe that they're helping to mastermind some global communist plantation into being, and if they're loyal enough to the cause, they'll get put in charge of deciding who lives and who dies, who's loyal and who isn't, and who's met their quota and who hasn't.

Plus, to them, one of the most important allures to communism comes from its promise of true "equality" among the masses. For whatever reason, these buttholes place value on the freedoms and liberties of the various mud peoples above their own. Finally, everybody is equal, and eeeevil rrrrrraaaaacists have been btfo forever.

To put simply, What they don't realize is that with communism

• Everybody's not equal, they're even;
• Nobody can have anything that another can't have;
• Nobody can aspire to be anything that another can not also be.

It's a scam on the same order as any Jewish-dominated system. All the same bankers and filth-merchants and manufacturers with sweetheart military contracts still hoard all the wealth; there's still an eeevil 1% in Communism. The only - and I mean only - difference is that they also openly work the levers of political power as members of The Party in good standing.

Long story short: They're stupid. They've been sold a romanticized lie, and they bought it hook, line, and sinker.

A rootless cosmopolitan society and deteriorating education and family structure that we have today results in a lack of national pride and hatred for every part of the current system. This leads youth to be angry at everything and delve into non-traditional and radical lifestyles and beliefs. This includes things like communism. It gives them a sense of belonging in a soulless society.

This can also lead to youth like us searching for truth and meaning endlessly, and some of us get lucky and eventually find fascism.

I think a lot of the millenials have the mindset of 'socialism' moreso than communism. They are still cucked in the sense of they have decided that their food service tier jobs can be AOK so long as they get to have their cake and eat it too.

This works out well for the overlords because I'm noticing a lot of the white SJWs are childless even though they wanted a kid at some point in their lives, and now either they can't find a suitable mate among the betas and refuse to go outside of their bubble, or wind up buying into debauchery (male or female homosexuality, transgenderism, etc.) that limits their ability to have children.

I wonder what the birth rate is among white couples vs others right now?

Because kids have all these notions about helping people and are young and idealistic, they will pick the thing that appeals to their emotions the most, which is helping everybody, and the idea of equality because those sentiments are both nice feeling and sounding, but young kids lack the knowledge to actually know what's good for a people and what can be realistically done. So it's only natural for some at least, to fall into shit like communism. Once they grow older and become more educated and real about a situation, they'll likely hold some fascistic ideas. I mean everybody does, naturally at least I think. I've talked to tons of people both old and young and sown some fascist sentiments and they liked the ideas actually.

By that logic you can say "Having angels give us all the food we need and free money and sex is appealing to youth" but we all know it's bullshit and doesn't happen.

Why is communism so popular among youth ?

Because they know nothing of history outside of "Hitler murdered sixty billion Jews" and "America invented slavery". They actually believe that communism would be everyone actually having 100% equality and that hierarchies don't exist naturally. They want a world like that because they know/think that they're not strong, and thus this method works best for them since they know that they could never compete with the Musk's or Gates' of the world; it's easier and less shame inducing to level off the playing field than it is try to reach a higher level.

They're essentially infantilized and think that a participation ribbon actually means something.
