Time to augment our collection of communism humor.
But instead of random satire about communism, which is my usual approach, there’s a theme for today’s collection.
Our first item is for the leftists who imagine they’ll be part of the ruling class after a Marxist revolution, only to find out they’ll be part of the 99 percent who endure lives of toil and oppression.
Since young people have a poor grasp of history, our second item is a cliff-notes version of real-world communism.
Next, we have a communist in his parents’ basement, figuring out how to remake society.
Last but not least, they say curiosity killed the cat.
Well, my favorite item from today’s collection is this youngster feeling drawn to an evil ideology.
To be fair, more young people are drawn to socialism than communism
But the shortcut definition of communism is that it’s socialism accompanied by dictatorship, so we’re simply talking about degrees of coercion.
P.S. There are two videos (here and here) indicating that college kids reject socialism when they’re presented with a real-world choice (and there are two satiric versions – here and here – about how that choice operates).
