Recently received an interesting email from the crew over at Project Veritas.
Thought it was a pretty insightful read, so I wanted to share it here for any of you that aren’t signed up to their newsletters
I received a pretty interesting email question the other day from a reader about why millennials are socialist, and I thought it’d make for a good article
Their email went something like this:
Hey Avi, I read your email about socialism [this one] and I was curious about why you think millennials are moving toward socialist policies?
And it’s a great question. For one, we live in an age unlike anything our ancestors could have ever imagined. Things are looking great, for now. Work hours have been reduced, health has improved, and quality of living has been steadily rising. Even crime has been dropping for some years. Why the sudden shift away from capitalism which has given us all of these benefits?
I feel like there are a few things at play here.
Teddy Roosevelt once said “Comparison Is The Thief of Joy”.
And I’m not sure I agree with this.
Comparison is a tool, albeit a competitive one, we use to gauge something about ourselves to another.
I can compare my car, to my friends car. I can compare my body, to a fitness models body.
I don’t see any type of intrinsic negativity in either of these actions. It is merely used as a benchmark, and with the right mindset I believe it could actually be an incredibly helpful tool. I think comparison can grant insight into our contentment levels of our own abilities/traits. And likewise, push them to higher reaches if we so desire.
Social media has been around ever since I was young. I grew up with it. In many ways, I was one of the hippy-types that used most social media platforms before they got “mainstream”. Many of us have seen the vanity of social media eventually decline the entirety of the platforms that were once so unique.
