Is Capitalism Dying? Ask A Millennial [cartoon]

Americans over 50 will never believe it, but they’re the only demographic left that thinks capitalism is superior to socialism. Here’s why. TED RALL cartoon

Americans who grew up during the Cold War against the Soviet Union will be shocked to learn that the old toxicity of the words socialism and communism are gone now.

Even candidates for judge in Texas are running as self-described socialists.

It turns out that now the only demographic left that continues to believe that capitalism is superior to either socialism or communism are Americans over 50 years of age.

As the country continues to age and old people die, so will capitalism or at least support for it.

Of course, when you look at the way millennials live, you can’t really say it’s all that surprising.
