3 Reasons Millennials Should Ditch Karl Marx for Ayn Rand

•, by Leisa Miller

Dear avocado-toast-eating brethren,

We need to drop Karl Marx like we dropped cable TV.

We're a generation that's sick of wars (and threats of wars), mass shootings, and media sensationalism. As the ambassadors of the sharing economy and investors in cryptocurrency, we hold innovation and entrepreneurship in high esteem.

Karl Marx is not who we think he is. His philosophy doesn't align with our values at all. We need to look to somebody more in touch with what's important to us — someone like Ayn Rand.

Here are 3 reasons we should kick ol' Karl to the curb and pick up Ayn Rand instead.

Karl Marx advocates using violence to get what you want.

We hate the constant stream of wars the US gets involved in. Whether it's Iraq or Afghanistan, or the threat of the Islamic State or North Korea, we're just tired of it all. Why can't everyone get along? Why do we have to topple regime after regime and flex our muscles on Twitter? Don't even get us started on the mass shootings. It's 2017, for crying out loud! This violence needs to stop.

Ditching Karl for Ayn is like placing your fork on the right side of your plate rather than the left side. It's like thinking that Wonder Woman in the movies is going to save you for real. Rather, ditch both Karl and Ayn for God, and specifically, the God of the Bible.
