The Bernie Sanders crowd has found no better foothold than on the campuses of American colleges and universities. These college campuses are the perfect breeding grounds for young socialists — many of whom are enrolled at their parents’ expense or via student loans that they have no intention of repaying.
The reason that college campuses are perfect incubators for cluelessly entitled “children” is that so many of the campus policies already promote many aspects of socialism. The concept of safe spaces is an incredibly Orwellian one, espousing that some free speech is “more equal” than other free speech. Students may retreat to their safe spaces when they find certain ideas and opinions to be too offensive — i.e. conservative — for their fragile little ears.
