Blondie:. Maybe “a new Peace Corp” for mis-educated Millennials ?

My Idea for a New Peace Corp for Millennials

I propose reviving and altering the old Kennedy Peace Corp program.

It will be mandatory for all college grads to take six months to live in Venezuela, North Korea, China, Cuba, Russia, Saudi Arabia.

If they survive the six months and are not jailed for life, I have a feeling they will be more appreciative of the freedoms afforded them thru our constitution and capitalism. It will be the best education we could ever give them. It could change the current trajectory of America like nothing else will.

BlondieI know this approach works. I spent a few months traveling around Peru when I was just a dumb college kid. When my plane landed, I kneeled on the tarmac and kissed the ground. Really. I did. (Back in the days when you did not de-board via a jet way.) I was so happy to be back in a country that had pretty much mastered the concept of flushing toilets! Among other things.

This whole story is a testament to the horrible state of public education in America.

Nearly 1 In 5 Millennials Consider Joseph Stalin And Kim Jong Un ‘Heroes’

Nearly 1 In 5 Millennials Consider Joseph Stalin And Kim Jong Un ‘Heroes’

The Daily Caller—-Nearly one in five millennials consider Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un “heroes,” according to a Thursday poll.

The poll demonstrated an increase in acceptance of socialism and communism among American millennials and was released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Fund.

One-half of millennials and one-third of Americans would prefer to reside in a socialist or communist nation instead of a capitalist democracy, according to the poll.

“One in five (23%) of Americans age 21-29 consider Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin a ‘hero’; 26% for Vladimir Lenin; 23% for Kim Jong Un,” the study notes. Furthermore, over one-fifth of millennials surveyed had a positive opinion of Karl Marx.

“Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative,” said Marion Smith, Victims of Communism’s executive director, in the press release obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“This troubling turn highlights widespread historical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.”

The study also found that 71 percent of millennials could not pinpoint communism’s definition and four-fifths of the generation did not know how many lives were lost as a result of the ideology.

Even before reading this I have said for the last 10 years that all 18-19 year old men should,,……should have to work on a small farm , where you work and not watch the machines work for at least one growing season. Let them get up and milk cows at 4am,pick crops 12 hrs a day, etc, etc, etc. then repay them with a year of free college. They would look at life much different then

Your point is well take, but I disagree that it should await completion of college. It should be required of all hale and hearty high school graduates, and the term should be at least a year, 2 would be better. Call it mandatory national service or whatever you want. Organize along the lines of military training and management with odious penalties for not participating willingly and with some level of zeal. By having experienced living away from mommy and daddy before going to college, these young folks will mature at a rate similar to that experienced by the teenagers who… Read more »

Sorry for the typos above. I wish BL et al would provide the ability to preview and edit before hitting the ‘send’ key; or, failing that, to provide an edit function after sending. Others do it. It shouldn’t be too hard for any capable html coder. (I was an IT puke for 40 years and even now write code and build web sites.)

Amen, BOBH. Even though I was a generation behind you, tuition was just $600 per semester in 1992. Books were almost as much. It took me a year to realize I could photocopy most of the texts I needed for far less at the library. Those prices made it within reach to work hard and pay as you go, instead of starting adulthood in debt slavery. We have seen the upward exponential curve in both University pricing, and the worthless output that comes from the University today. They are very related. Cut the beast that drives the pricing (Federally guaranteed… Read more »

And I thought I was the only one who could see that the emperor is wearing no clothes. It’s good to hear that another highly motivated and personally responsible graduate from UNCCH sees the same.

When I was there those many years ago, it was not impossible to find libertarian and conservative professors. I wonder if it is possible to do so today?

Yes, they HARRUMPH Capitalism on their latest and greatest phone/tablet, while drinking a $10 cup of soy flavored mud, and wearing current fashion, which seems to be paying extra for some slave laborer in the Far East to wear holes in your britches, so you do not need to trouble yourself with the wear out process.
