Except for those graduating from elite universities, with either full scholarships or wealthy tuition-paying parents, this is the stunted generation -- young adults venturing into a world of work, loaded with student debt, unable to find stable jobs or decent careers. This is also the post-Cold War generation, for whom Soviet communism is a distant memory (along with reliable jobs). For this generation of Americans, capitalism is not exactly a good word, nor is socialism a bad one. So, when a candidate comes along calling for free college education and free universal health care, and far higher minimum wages, it sounds pretty fine. And if capitalism means the one percent making off with everything that isn't nailed down, then maybe Sanders-style socialism is worth a try. So say the young.
