"Time" online (what is left of what was once Time Magazine) defines 'millennials' as all of the Americans between the ages of 18 and 29.

42% percent say they prefer socialism as the means of organizing society. 62% define themselves a liberals. 22% identify themselves as Republicans.

They should head down to Venezuela and join the party. They can get gas for about 15 cents a gallon so there is no Exxon type corporations to complain about. Food and toilet paper is another matter and as their oil production continues to dwindle becsue of lack of corporations like that evil Exxon that 15 cent a gallon gas is going away too.

Sure the gas is cheap but they can't afford to buy a car to put it in.

I'll take something for nothing,who wouldn't?,and then like Margaret Thatcher said,"socialism is fine until you run out of OTHER PEOPLE'S money." How can people be so stupid to fall for this liberal bullshit. Our system is not perfect,never will be,but it made us the most prosperous nation ever.why "fix" that?

Different generations = a different way of thinking & different priorities, what they are saying in the article is they are looking for a mixture (what I got out of it anyway) their idea of socialism may differ a great deal & perhaps just be the preferred name for them. Lets face it many here probably thought a lot differently than our parents & them of their parents. It's all a cycle & the world will go on, it just may be that the boomers (if that's even who is leading) has run their gamut & it's time to pass the baton. For better or worse whatever happens will be, as a nation we really haven't been doing much of a job for quite awhile.

Hold on...you have to read deeper:
Forty-two percent say they prefer socialism as a means of organizing society, but only 16% can define the term properly as government ownership of the means of production.
In fact, when asked whether they want an economy managed by the free market or by the government, 64% want the former and just 32% want the latter.

Although they support a government-provided social safety net, two-thirds of millennials agree that “government is usually inefficient and wasteful,” and they are highly skeptical toward government with regards to privacy and nanny-state regulations about e-cigarettes, soda sizes and the like.

I'd say there is hope for the future if the Republicans IF they can shirk the establishment shackles and revert to a straight conservative-fiscal issues and leave the social issue to a more Libertarian position.

There is plenty of hope if they can get out of either extreme.

Now you're talkin' Sam. If only the "silent majority"would speak up,we'd be fine.

The NEA and their entrenched system manipulates our K-12 education system and purposefully funnels our youth in the direction of socialism. After all, it takes a village.

I think the title of Hillary's book should have been: "It Takes A Village To Raise A Socialist Child".

Certainly that was the message all along.
