Answers:

Being thrifty and being communist are not the same thing. Here in Canada I too am as thrifty as they come. I have never bought anything unless I had an immediate need for it. Hence I am retiring with more that enough money in the bank.

However many young people are being forced to be thrifty as it is now very hard for young people to find the sort of well paying jobs that used to be available for people with less education. In the case of my daughter it took her getting a PhD in engineering so that now at age 30 she makes a six figure US$ income. Most kids cannot delay making an income that long.

My point it that with mostly low wage jobs available to them and being told for so long that pensions and the like are not going t be there for them that they have scaled back their desires to what the only need. To not want anything that is unessential.

Please, please, do not simplify your mind to equate a few pleasant characteristics with "being a Communist". Look at the world (all of it, not just your own country, wherever that might be).

It sounded like you were actually writing an intelligent question until you said communists. Sort of like the "Obama's regime" answer. Not the brightest bulbs on the porch.

All the depravity that Capitalism has caused: gangs EVERYWHERE, class sized way way too high, not enough trained and good teachers, crime rates reached their peak while Capitalism made it that way, and on and on like that. Not only that, but they have suffered from legal price gouging, legal plagiarism, legal burglary, and etc.., on that too.
MY LIST WOULD ALWAYS BEAT YOUR LIST, and you know it.

I disagree with the assumption that they are minimalist. While they themselves may not be purchasing an aweful lot, their parents are still buying an aweful lot for them. Not out of the kindness of their heart mind you, but due to the continues badgering and the victom status of their adult children.

They witnessed first hand the hypocrisy of capitalism.

The Union teachers trained them to be communists.

Another fallacy promoted by the right since the majority of so called millenials are pro choice, pro difference, pro freedom. The fact is that they are no more nor less than past generations though their shopping habits have changed based upon changes in the world around them started again, by previous generations. To an "old fashioned" conservative, a communist is anyone who cares for others and believes that all people are created equal.....you know, the same thing the communist forefathers that wrote the US Constitution believed....at least if you listen to far right conservatives, that is what they would have to consider the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

That's not communism.

They became adults during the depression of Obama's regime. I think you need to look up the meaning of Communism, because none of your statements conforms to Communism.
