South American Countries Are Wising Up When It Comes to Socialism

While Venezuela is currently struggling under its socialist regime, four South American countries are changing their ways. The elected presidents of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Colombia are favoring market democracy over socialism.

When it comes to political philosophy, there are two ideas so intrinsically opposite they cannot help but clash together in fiery ways. Conservatism, a pillar of society in the United States, and Socialism, the economic and political system that has ravaged countless fledgling nations and decimated populations. How has this horrible idea once again taken hold in the minds of Americans, youths especially? Heritage may have an answer: Is a specter of socialism haunting America, especially among our millennials? There is disquieting evidence of many young Americans’ sympathy for socialism. Exhibit A: 2.052 million people under the age of 30 voted for ...
