Fashions come and go, but socialism is always in style! Just ask Teen Vogue, who’s got a new piece up spotlighting nine up-and-coming members of the Young Democratic Socialists of America:
.@YDSA_ members from across the country talked about what their work with the organization involves, from ending the criminalization of homelessness to raising campus minimum wage https://t.co/lfJLErEIdL @TeenVogue

First, read these @TeenVogue interviews with 8 incredible YDSA members about the work they're doing to build student and worker power at their schools and in their communities: https://t.co/s12GrhjDsy

These rising socialist superstars definitely have a firm grasp on what socialism actually entails:
"I honestly think that everyone is a socialist and they just don’t know it yet! To me, socialism is really about believing in people and human worth." –Radha Jagwani, @YDSAGT #BreadandRoses https://t.co/W3JFLjqnPx

AOC couldn’t’ve said it better herself.
Signed, someone that has no idea what Socialism is

This just in: Radha Jagwani has a grossly inaccurate understanding of what socialism is.

These tweets are a great argument for raising the voting age to 30.

As a former subscriber to @TeenVogue, I’m appalled by your editorial direction.
It’s gross to sanitize socialism. Period. This ideology believes in oppressing/killing people and denying their human worth. But what do I know, my family fled it & my gpa survived the gulag 🤷🏼♀️ https://t.co/TcQNreUnYc

What garbage – How did Teen Vogue become a Marxists outlet
— Glenn Amurgis (@gamurgis) May 4, 2020
It's actually the opposite. It's about believing that people are too stupid and immoral to plan their own lives, so plans must be drawn up by politicians and experts for everyone to follow. This is why socialists/communists are always on the wrong side on individual rights.
