Socialism is growing in popularity in America. If you’re a regular reader of NOQ Report, chances are you’re a conservative who scratches your head any time you hear statistics pointing to the rise of Marxist principles as acceptable to Americans, particularly the youth in our country. But we need only look to the two most influential forces propagating ideologies to realize what the source is of all this lunacy.
Progressive mainstream media, which comprises somewhere around 80% of the “news” spread across America, has fully embraced not only the Democrats’ doctrine, but also the hyper-leftist philosophies of socialism, communism, and authoritarianism. They want a nanny state because they believe it will protect us from ourselves. They do not believe in the supremacy of our Creator nor the efficacy of individualism. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be so supportive of abortion, open borders, gun control, single-payer healthcare, climate change hysteria, wealth redistribution, or any other components of a Marxist future.
Then, there’s our education system. It has always been populated by teachers and administrators who are unabashedly progressive. In fact, the progressive worldview is often inherent in the desire to educate; I’ve always found conservatives are more about “doing” than “teaching.” Conservatives become trial lawyers. Progressives become law professors.
A new report from Cato Institute shows the rise in popularity of socialism, especially among those under 30:
A new poll shows that half of Americans under 30 support socialism, with 1 in 3 even saying it is "justified" to take "violent action" against the rich. https://t.co/u1HbhzPpOy

Some of my NeverTrump friends ask me why I converted to become a supporter. I was so adamantly opposed to his candidacy during the 2016 primaries that I essentially changed my life, selling my company and dedicating full-time to fighting on political, cultural, and religious fronts. I gave up a very comfortable, blissful existence in exchange for struggles and ongoing battles against progressives. But during the course of this transition, I came to realize that the real existential threat to America wasn’t the President or RINOs on Capitol Hill. It was the rising Marxist mentality spreading across America that threatened to upend our way of life. It threatens to fundamentally change America into something I would not want for anyone’s children, particularly my own.
I’ve never regretted this decision despite the challenges. We’re seeing a ludicrous mindset spreading across our nation, one that is borne by nefarious forces. One might even read some Ephesians 6:12 into it as none of the insane ideas from the radical progressives make sense. It’s very much like the warning of Isaiah 5:20.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
We can no longer take for granted that logic, history, and common sense will guide our nation’s voters. We must expose socialism for what it is – an existential threat – and make sure 2020 voters know they cannot allow it to take hold in America.
