Here's What The Left Is Teaching Your Kids About Communism
Using a new book, the Left is now teaching kids that communism is the cure-all for capitalism.
The book, titled Communism for Kids, was written by Bini Adamczak, who is from Berlin, and "writes on political theory, queer politics, and the past future of revolutions," according to The MIT Press; an English-translated version was released by MIT.
As the title suggests, the book is essentially a piece of communist propaganda written in very basic, simple language, accompanied by weird-looking cartoons popping up at odd times throughout in order to appeal to children.
Daily Wire read through the book so you don't have to; here's what you need to know about it.
1. It completely distorts capitalism and communism. Adamczak describes capitalism as a philosophy in which eventually "people begin to serve the things" – in other words, that people become slaves to material goods. Communism is portrayed as the antidote to this supposed form of authoritarianism. The book then provides a fictional example of how the two philosophies play out in society.
2. The book uses a factory as an example of the supposed evils of capitalism.
