Will Generation 'Gimme' Work for the American Dream? Eye-opening insight into America's youth

Glad to see this guy demonstrates the theft to his class. In his book "reason"  Robert Reich (yeah, that guy)  does a similar experiment in his class to demonstrate "fairness"  -  he takes out a 10 dollar bill, gives it to one student and asks that student to decide how much of it to share with another student.  Its a windfall gain, so typically th students share it evenly or nearly evenly.  So Riech then goes on to brainwash his class to say all money should be distributed this way.

I always wished I could be there to request he re run the expriement after forcefully extracting the $10 bill from one of his students, and then see what the students think is "fair" -- ironicaly, he then goes on in a foot note about a study on monkeys that were trained to perform certain tasks to g et a reward ( food) and how these monkeys would be come enraged when someone monkeys good food WITHOUT doing the tasks.  To Reich, it proves his concept of "fairness' because obviously and axiomatically the wealthy didn't earn their money - they got itby some nefarious means - somehow stealing it from others.  Hunter Gatherer menatality the whole way. Work? Risk?  Reward?  When does that come into the equation? Its irrelevant when everything is seen as an unearned  windfall gain.

These people are barbarian thrownbacks- subhuman animals incapable of understanding the concept of work, personal responsibility or personal property.  And as this video sugests, the public schools are to blame for creating them. And now, with their minds apparently irreversibly damanged,   the only think to do is lock them up in a commune and let them kill each other, or do the humane thing and just shoot them ourselves.

Some people are under the misguided belief that this condition is something new...where the heck have these people been?  This is not the first generation to exhibit signs of inbred leftist rot.

I like the comment left by the guy using grades as an example...share the grades, no choice, it is done without your say, for the benefit of the less intelligent...same thing...once you demonstrate what you stand to lose, only then can there even be a chance of changing sheep into people.

I would favor dividing the nation into subhumans and humans Weisshaupt, but I doubt it will be a popular notion.

The Reckoning will sort it all out.

Exactly why I have adopted a line from Walter Williams (stated when he filled in for Rush recently):  "Reality is not optional"

It's such a simple line, but it really goes right to the heart of the matter. We have big, big problems that got that way as the result of decades worth of trying to avoid or postpone Reality in the first place; and now as it starts to come apart at the seams we are still treated to insipid little bromides like "any changes to Social Security or Medicare would be extremely unpopular among voters". Well guess what? It doesn't matter how "unpopular" it is, because Reality. Is. Not. Optional.

We have a lot of people who are simply going to be completely incapable of functioning in any remotely self-sufficient capacity, and I think the prescription mentioned by Weisshaupt is going to be the inevitable answer to that.

Yeah, that is good!  Reality is not optional.  Emotions however are completely optional.  Reality doesn't give a damn about how you feel or what your hopes and happy thoughts are, it will just happen.  To say there are multitudes of people incapable of handling reality is an understatement without peer, these people have had years of training learning how to avoid reality and have passed that flaw onto their offspring.  When reality hits it will be with the force of a sledgehammer to the face.  Then we'll see a new and much more accurate definition of what unpopular really means.

No doubt Stymie has a slew of old bromides to fire back at Marco and America!

Reality is coming for the SCoaMF and all of his ilk.
