AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Our next guest argues the way to combat this rise in socialism begins with education. 

...

ISAAC MOREHOUSE (PRAXIS): There are opportunities everywhere. The economy is full of opportunities, but one of the reasons I think socialism is really attractive to a lot of young people is, they maybe don't have the opportunities they thought they were going to get. This isn't too surprising when you look at the education system. Most young people have spent the first 20 years of their life in classrooms, not out there in the real world, in the working world, and they've been told, just get good grades, go get a degree. So they do, they go into debt for it, debt that they barely understand. They get the degree, and then they come out, and they can't get the job that they imagined or that they were promised. And so they feel like somebody owes me something, this isn't fair. And, in a sense, they're right. They've kind of been given a story that all you need to focus on is getting that degree and you'll be good to go, when in reality you've got to learn how to work and hustle, and go create those opportunities for yourself, because they are out there. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Absolutely. But, Isaac, you know, a lot of millennials these days, they've had it pretty darn easy compared to past generations.
