Democrats, young voters favor socialism over capitalism, but what does that mean?
Youve got student debt, youve got the high cost of health insurance, youve got low wage jobs. All that adds up to a condition that young people want an alternative to. William Trumbull, a professor of economics at the BAKER SCHOOL OF BUSINESS at The CITADEL who studies socialist and post-socialist economies, also pointed to the financial crisis as a formative experience for young adults who saw it as an inevitable consequence of unbridled capitalism, but he added they may not fully. grasp the ramifications of socialism. I think theres this romantic image among people who are young before theyve had a whole lot of experience in life that theres something inherently good about socialism, Trumbull said.

A new poll indicates a widening disparity between Democrats and Republicans and young voters and the rest of the electorate on the virtues of socialism, but experts say different age groups and political factions have vastly different ideas of what socialism is and what impact socialist policies may have.

4The Walter Lippmann Colloquium and the Meaning of Liberalism

By Richard M. Ebeling, the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel

The world has always been an uncertain place, and this is no less true today. After the collapse of communism in the 1990s, there was confidence that democracy had won and the market economy had shown its superiority to government planning. This is no longer the case, with the rise of populism, a rebirth of nationalism, and a reawakened interest in socialism. Many seem to think liberalism has failed again and needs to be replaced.

4Does US presidential rhetoric affect asymmetric political violence?

By Laura Dugan, Erica Chenoweth and Daren Fisher, Ph.D., assistant professor in criminal justice at The Citadel

Although political violence has proven to be difficult for governments to manage, predict or control, previous research on the impact of relevant federal government actions and US presidential rhetoric on terrorist attacks and hate crimes demonstrates that what the US government does matters in ways that are both expected and unexpected.

5Student loan debt: Worse than you’ve heard

You’ve probably heard some recent college graduate lamenting the financial pressures of high student loan debt along with stagnant wages. Perhaps you rolled your eyes or considered that it couldn’t possibly be as bad as all that. The data show that in South Carolina it is as bad as all that — and worse than in many states.

At more than $38,000, college graduates at Coastal Carolina University were saddled with the most debt among public and private colleges across the Palmetto State in 2016. The College of Charleston ranks fourth-lowest in student debt, while The Citadel ranks sixth-lowest out of 17 colleges reporting data.*

3Senior Page: Retirement Means Giving Back For Orleans Brigadier General

Brigadier General Jimmy Gordon Dishner, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), of Orleans goes by “Jimmy” much like another famous Jimmy, President Jimmy Carter. The plaques and commendations on what he jokingly dubs his “I love me” wall in his home all say “Jimmy,” as do his Virginia birth certificate and his Massachusetts driver’s license. Yet when he goes for his morning take-out coffee at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow near his home, one of the baristas invariably shouts out, “General!”

Dishner graduated from the Citadel in South Carolina and later earned an engineering degree at Texas A&M University. Through the years he served in California, Texas, Vietnam and, for many years, at the Pentagon. After retiring from the Air Force, Dishner became a deputy assistant secretary at the Pentagon.
