In a nation where free markets and the ability to pursue one’s dreams have created the most prosperous people in the history of the world, we have to wonder why so many young people embrace the concept of socialism. After all, there’s no history of freedom in any socialist country. There’s no history of prosperity in any socialist country. There’s no history of the ability of one to pursue individual dreams in any socialist country. Maybe that’s the problem right there. Our youth have no knowledge of history. In fact, the Nation’s Report Card, produced by the National Assessment of Educational Progress, reveals that a despicably low percentage of U.S. high school seniors know history. According to the report, just 12% are considered proficient in U.S. history. This is a testimony to the remarkable failure of the public education system. If seniors know very little about U.S. history, it is unlikely they know anything about world history. The evidence is they do not, as a growing percentage of young people demand that we abandon principals of liberty and replace them with the slavery and oppression of socialism. Isn’t it time we restore our culture?
