A political column in Rolling Stone magazine suggests that America’s millennial generation should push for a “fair society.”
What’s fair? Author Jesse A. Myerson believes it means guaranteeing work for everybody, Social Security for all, taking back the land, making everything owned by everybody, and a public bank in every state.
Tonight on The Kelly File, Breitbart News editor Ben Shapiro discussed the “economic reforms” laid out in the article. “This is how the Occupy Wall Street movement thinks. This is a group of people who graduated with degrees in lesbian dance theory and then were surprised when they didn’t get a six-figure paycheck out of college.”
Shapiro said it’s time for conservatives to make the moral case for capitalism. He highlighted one fundamental truth: “You have to be productive in a capitalist society in order to earn anything.”
Myerson also wrote in the article, “Imagine a world where people could contribute the skills that inspire them – […] painting murals – rather than telemarketing or whatever other stupid tasks bosses need done to supplement their millions.”
Megyn Kelly wondered who will pay millennials to paint murals. “The unicorns will,” Shapiro quipped.
Who will generate the taxes that will pay for people to sit on the couch? Shapiro said, “This is the big problem with communism and socialism. It is inherently the most selfish philosophy on planet Earth. It’s the idea that because I’m breathing, I deserve something.”
