People mature and political views change. At the time most Millennials were not home owners and were drowning in student loan debt. Now most are homeowners with families. Every generation deals with their young, inexperienced hip views. Take the hippies of the past, I’m sure the majority are pot smoking conservatives now. Besides Millennials have gone through a lot, the Gulf War, domestic and foreign terrorism, the Enron BS, a multi-generational war, Obama’s housing crisis, and now Biden’s failed presidency. I’d be more worried about illegal immigration and the mental health crisis that is the alphabet mafia’s agenda. FYI I’m a Millennial and all of my peers are conservative leaning.

The Millennials are waring with Gen-Z now. The irony is enjoyable LOL. Many of the hippies you mention are still in the gov't...They got a foothold under Clinton and thrived under Obama and now still trying to hold onto their influence in Washington and the administrative state.

To be fair, everyone hates Gen Z…hell Gen Z hates Gen Z lol. So you’re telling me that at the end of the day a dislike for Boomers, especially those in government is justified? Oh the irony!

No innovation in socialist countries?
Scanning electron microscopes, programmable computer, nuclear fission, swept-wing aircraft, chloroquine, methadone….shall I go on?

Conflating socialism with communism is common, doesn’t make it correct.

Socialists can be good people with the best intentions. Communists aren’t even people.
Nuclear Fission as a concept was developed in 1934 by Enrico Fermi in 1934 who set the stage for Nuclear Fission, although formalized by Lise Meitner and Otto Frisch in 1938. One may even credit Einstein if looked at closely. The United States Officially won that race to a sustained reaction, unless you believe the Japanese detonated an atomic bomb early 1945. Programmable computer was actually developed in the 1850's by Charles Babbage https://www.computerhistory.org/babbage/ in England, a Monarchy. The first swept wing aircraft was a biplane developed in the 1900's by J.W. Dunne in the United States. The transistor which made electronic computers viable was a US invention. The Electron Microscope was Prior to the Nazi Party in 1931, although not commercialized until 1938.

Yes, socialism/communism is capable of high tech, but innovation not so much.

And if you look at Great Britain's developments during the 1800s you'll find a mind-boggling amount of invention under a monarchy.

Very true, although capitalism was still a very active force in their economy. Even under Nazism one could argue about the influence of capitalism, one could also argue that for whatever reasons many great scientists came out of Eastern Europe in the 1890's through the mid 1900's. Liquid fueled rockets (Goddard) were also a US invention speaking of Werner Von Braun from Germany.

In general though, one really has to examine if the US truly has a capitalistic economy, we did up until 1913. However history is always open to misinterpretation. The way I look at socialism it is just a polite term for communism. Democratic socialism is a fallacy, everything will never be put to a vote.

The boomers are partially responsible why the millennials got to leap frog gen-x, so I have issues with some of them too :)

Or when they finally pay off their home, they find it’s not theirs….the government owns the home.

with continued property taxes, estate taxes among everything else that is taxed, and all subject to seizure or confiscation if the right story can be fabricated --- most of us never really get to truly "own" anything
