Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus said support for socialism “comes right out of the universities” on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News.
“We have a group of people in Washington today, new representatives especially, that look at socialism as the way to go…it comes right out of the universities. You see students graduating today, and almost 50% of students coming out of universities today believe that socialism is the answer. That’s frightening to me.”
Marcus, during an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, discussed the deterioration of socialist Venezuela and Cuba, comparing the situations in those countries today with the realities there decades ago, pre-socialist rule. Marcus called the economic downturns in each of those countries, Cuba, in particular, a “perfect example of socialism gone wrong.”
“They [Cuba] took a great country. They put it right down the drain in every way possible. People are starving to death. Medical is not available for them. And we have a group of people in Washington today, new representatives especially, that look at socialism as the way to go and if you don’t think that’s dangerous, I do,” Marcus said.
Marcus further addressed where he believes the growing socialist sentiment among Americans is coming from.
“It comes right out of the universities. You see students graduating today and a very high percentage…almost 50 percent of students coming out of universities today believe that socialism is the answer,” Marcus said. “That’s frightening to me because the things that made this country great, that created the wealth of this country, and I mean the wealth of every single person right down the line, the best medical care in the world, the best housing in the world, that’s why people want to come here, is because of the system, and that’s the free enterprise system.” More
He is 100% correct. For example, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who majored in international relations and economics. (Not joking) I think that the school she graduated from should be burned to the ground if that’s the quality of graduate they are producing.
College education as we know it today, is, with some important exceptions, is a gigantic scam against America. And this has been the case for many, many years.
