But not so fast.

Founded by Morgan Zegers, a candidate for for the New York State Assembly in 2018, this group is working on social media to recount stories about the horrors of socialism.

YAAS conducts interviews with people who escaped socialist countries and then uses social media platforms to spread their stories.

Zegers told Glenn Beck, “The Left is so good at emotion. The Right, conservatives, people who advocate for freedom and opportunity are not the best at it. So Young Americans Against Socialism is adding emotion to the playbook. We take these emotional, powerful stories of people who escaped from Venezuela, from Cuba, from the USSR: It’s really, really scary, passionate stuff that they tell into the screen, and we put them on very short social-media videos.”

Part of YAAS’s mission is to debunk the false notion of a difference between “socialism” and “democratic socialism.” One of their main goals is to pick apart the myth that Scandinavian countries are a successful example of “socialism”, when the evidence shows that they’re actually mixed economies with many capitalistic features.

During times when countries like Venezuela are collapsing from socialist policies like private property expropriation and runaway central banking, it’s more important than ever to make the intellectual and emotional case against socialism.

Groups like YAAS are more than ready to embrace that challenge.
