In his classic book, The Road to Serfdom, F. A. Hayek explains how a major component in the rise of the Third Reich in Nazi Germany was the "intellectual relativism" of the younger generation. Germany's youth were brainwashed to abandon rational thought for romantic thinking. Their popular cry became the "end of capitalism," which Germany's young National Socialists blamed for many of their nation's problems. National Socialism on the other hand, in spite of the fact that it was a preposterous pipe dream, was advocated by them as the great panacea, the cure-all for all that ailed them and a sure path to German utopia. Of course, we all know where National Socialism led Nazi Germany. It wasn't to heaven on earth, but to hell on earth. Where will the likes of a young, irrational, pipe dreaming socialist, like Ocasio-Cortez lead us?
