Karl Marx described
"useful idiots" as people who carry
the Marxist ideals
throughout a society
or country itself, but this term can apply to anyone who believes in useless
. Many young college students are bought and sold by liberal/socialist ideals
like no-gun laws will stop crime
in its tracks, heavy government control in our life is a good
thing, and universal healthcare will solve all issues. They can be considered
useful idiots because other countries
around the world have proved these ideas horribly
wrong, however they still blindly follow their leaders who say those things. Useful idiots believe they are fighting for "good
" causes, but do not have the ability to think for themselves. If they would actually sit and think things out for a few minutes, they would realize how bad their ideas really are.
"My adherents are useful idiots." -Karl Marx
Person 1: America needs socialized medicine
because thousands of people can't get healthcare, and socialized medicine
will solve that issue!
Person 2: No it won't, the hospitals will just
become so filled that LESS
people will get help, and more people will die from curable diseases! Countries
like Cuba and the U.K. have
already proved this!
Person 1: No, it works
! You're just
a hatemonger of the poor! It works
in other countries
and it will work
Person 2: Ugh! What's the use of arguing this? You're just
another useful idiot.
