Campus Reform reporter Addison Smith asked a student, who identified himself as a member of the Georgetown Young Democratic Socialists of America, if he supported politicians who adopt “socialist policies” through the democratic process.
“So you want people to choose to elect someone to choose to withdraw [American’s] private property rights? ”asked Smith.

“No, it’s just … taxes, not private property rights,” replied the student.
Smith then pointed out that “money is property” and the student said, “If you view a tax as a violation of private property rights, then of course.”
Another student said that socialism is “certainly a good thing” and that while it may sound “out of date” to say, “it is a certain level of equality”.

Not all of the students celebrated socialism, including one student who said she was from a former Soviet country and people here “don’t really have a” socialism and “point of view. we haven’t seen it work anywhere. “
Other students who had said they supported socialism were asked about what-if scenarios of working hard to achieve wealth in their personal lives and then having that redistributed. Several students admitted that they didn’t like this scenario.
“Well, when it’s presented that way, it sure sounds worse,” one student said with a laugh.
