The percentage of Americans who say patriotism, religious faith, family, and other traditional American values are “very important” is on the decline, a Wall Street Journal-NORC poll found.
Support for every traditional American value included in the poll has receded since 1998 besides “money,” which has grown in importance. The data also shows young people and Democrats tend not to highly rank traditional American values as much as older adults and Republicans.
Interesting. As the younger generations eschew capitalism in favor of socialism and Communism, they hold money as the most important value. Won’t they be surprised when they find themselves living in American Cuba or Venezuela, with the middle class gone.
Money is the # 1 thing. And yet, most of the younger generation doesn’t want the ONLY system that can produce money.
