Skip to comments.Americans under 30 more likely to resent the ultra-rich and support violence against the wealthy

Among Americans under 30, 52% say that most rich people in the United States got rich by taking advantage of other people.
In contrast, a strong 72% majority of seniors over 65 say that most wealthy people in America earned their wealth without exploiting people.
Americans under 30 were also much more ambivalent toward capitalism and supportive of socialism.
The survey found support for capitalism and socialism nearly evenly split among young Americans, with 49% saying they are favorable toward capitalism, and 50% saying they are favorable toward socialism.

And ultra rich will be defined down to anyone “richer” than themselves.
Interesting. That 52% is just about the same percentage who are racial minorities and mixed-race people in the USA.
Yet they idolize and vote the same way as all the Silicon Valley and Hollywood elite liberals o.k.
They’re just a bunch of spoiled brats that want everything free!
It is amazing that 52% of under 30 people agree on anything.
They resent the wealthy because they have had this “fact” drummed into their heads every year they spent in school. Right out of the Commie-bastard manifesto...the rich only get rich by exploiting the poor.
How many teachers support that idea? MOST.
The dumb student, bastards believe what their teachers tell them never understanding that the teachers are exploiting them.
“I won’t get off my ass to create wealth, so no one else should be wealthy.”
A lot of people who were born from 1990 onward don’t have much connection to reality.
Don’t trust anyone under 30.
Many of that 72% thought the same way these under 30s did, back when they were young.
Can you blame them? They have been fed lies all their lives. For that matter so have us old folk.
Some of them may be in the twin cities area tomorrow.
No doubt that many of them were saddened to hear of Bernie’s heart attack,
What this poll showed is why the Biden getting his son deals all over the world story will turn this age group off to Biden.
LOL! I love it!
Too bad they don’t go to Venezuela and see first hand how that socialism is doing.
Maybe they should finish high school and get a job....and give up the drugs.
All the more reason to proceed with a pet project of mine:
Raise the voting age to 30, with an exemption for military vets, of course.
For me and I am a little over 40. It’s not the rich I dislike but the wealthy limousine snobs. They ruined things by being greedy. I don’t hate wealthy but dislike liberals who misused the wealth, and use it for no good.
Siince there are at least 3 distinct economic approaches in modern society and the survey only gives a choice between two of them, the survey is seriously flawed with confirmation bias... and probably other forms of bias.
Who knows what large identity groups think? Not I. And certainly not this survey.
First of all, Hispanics are a small part of total society, but a large part of the young age group. That age group could be broken down by education, income, family status, etc. Picking one identity factor is totally ridiculous and unscientific.
Many of your immigrants and mixed race Americans, like a lot of my family, are very solid for good work and family values. Generalities are not exceptionally true!
