Teen Vogue, which bills itself on Twitter as “The young person's guide to conquering (and saving) the world” declared Wednesday that “ending capitalism!” is the only solution to poverty.

In a tweet touting its online article “Everything You Need to Know About Capitalism,” Teen Vogue opines:

"Can’t #endpoverty without ending capitalism!

"Everything You Need to Know About Capitalism

What it is, how it works, and who is for and against it."

“What ‘Capitalism’ Is and How It Affects People,” subtitled, “what it is, how it works, and who is for and against it” and published online back in April, portrays supporters of capitalism as wealthy, greedy, and responsible for the existence of poverty:

  • “Individual capitalists are typically wealthy people who have a large amount of capital (money or other financial assets) invested in business, and who benefit from the system of capitalism by making increased profits and thereby adding to their wealth.”
  • “In a capitalist country, the focus is on profits over anything else; in a socialist country, the public is seen to be more important, and social welfare is a major priority.”
  • “The essential anti-capitalist argument is that “the hallmark of capitalism is poverty in the midst of plenty.”

In contrast, the article characterizes members of the violent Occupy Wall Street movement as inquisitive citizens wondering why rich people “are allowed" to prosper in the face of poverty:

“The Occupy Wall Street movement began as an anti-capitalist protest against “the 1%” — the richest of the rich of the capitalist class — and asked why they are allowed to grow fat and happy while 20% of all American children live in poverty.”
