In the article, Dr. Grabar, Resident Fellow of The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI), expresses concern about the ignorance of a “disturbingly large percentage of Americans” about the nature of Communism since Chinese irresponsibility in handling the contagion is explicable in the nature of the regime itself. She references a Victims of Communism poll that revealed “more than one in three millennials viewed communism favorably, and a rapidly growing percentage of those under 40 are willing to vote not only socialist but communist. . . Generation Z and millennials were much more likely to report getting a favorable presentation of communism, in grades K-12 (23 and 25 percent, respectively), and in college (36 and 37 percent).”
