Millennials Are Waiting For The End Of Capitalism

Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) is a huge part of the Millennial psyche. But while that extends to everything that goes down on social media, this generation doesn’t seem to be worried about missing out on retirement funds.

Millennials—or Generation Y—are today’s late teens and twenty-somethings born in the 80s and 90s, and they number some 80 million people in the United States.

And because FOMO is the Millennial common denominator, the financial detours are numerous.

Thanks to the meteoric rise of social media advertising, Millennials have endless options for spending money, and they account for an estimated $1.3 trillion in annual consumer spending.

Half of Millennials have made unplanned purchases because of something they’ve seen on social media.

And half claim they spend more money on nights out than they do on rent or mortgage payments.

They’ll have to wait a few more decades.

When they get their wish, those that haven’t changed their mind will be in for the most astonishing surprise the world has ever seen - and it will not be pretty.

They haven’t figured out yet that EVRYTHING they wish to “redistribute” is PRODUCED by capitalism.

I wonder how many of them are willing to work for free?

They just might get it, in their lifetimes.

I won’t be shedding any tears for those rooting for it. Enjoy! Little Neo Nazi David Hogg can be minister of propaganda.

The Law of Supply and Demand is a bit like Thermodynamics: some laws cannot be repealed.

I know that many members of my age group (I was born in 1964) adopted the “eat, drink and be merry” attitude because we thought that we were all going to go up in the big fiery mushroom cloud. Then the Soviet Union went down the crapper. Just like that crazy nut Reagan planned on. Things change, dumbass millennials, so don’t count on Stalin Claus to come and relieve you of your responsibility to take care of yourselves.

The most worthless generation in regards to the potential for America’s future. They bring nothing but their diapers and pacifiers.

Millennials are the fatherless generation, obviously bringing us the super predators fathers’ right advocates warned the world about. More of the Millennials will change their minds, but most may continue to lean to the left. But Generation Z, according to a few Millennial conservative activists (messages received by New Right advocates from younger kids), will lean far more to the right than Baby Boomers.

No they don’t know everything they consume is produced through capitalism. Too many of these people are absolutely ignorant of how the economy works, how the world works, how Congress and politics operates, etc.

I am glad I’m going to be dead when these morons get the bill dropped in their laps.
Castro is already dead so he’s not going to be giving them a loan

Those millen-losers will experience a harsh awakening.

Speaking of Cuba, I’ve never gotten an answer to my basic question. And that question is, how is it that the American trade embargo against Cuba is blamed for Cuba’s problems? If socialism/communism would be a superior system of organizing society and the economy, why would they need trade with Americans to prosper?

And if capitalism is evil and all that, why would Cuba a workers paradise, want to deal with us at all?

Sorry, a few questions, not just one. But if communism were superior, why would they need us? Why would their superior system falter because we had an embargo against them?

What these immature morons don’t understand is that under a Stalin or Hitler like regime...most of them would either be in “re education” camps or forced into the military as cannon fodder.

These poor slobs really don’t have any idea how pathetically stupid they are.

That should be interesting. Baby boomers overwhemingly voted for Reagan, and most of the names on the Vietnam war memorial wall are baby boomers.

My 20-year old daughter was surprised she didn’t see any signs from the march against guns that said:

“Impeach Trump the Dictator!!
And take away our guns!!!!”
