Rand Paul, U.S. senator for Kentucky and America's most prominent libertarian, makes a case against socialist ideology, showing the impact of its deadly legacy and the threat of its new rise in America.
Reintroduced by leaders such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, socialism was once grounds for blacklisting during the McCarthy era. Yet now it is being embraced on American college campuses and among many leftists. In The Case Against Socialism, Rand Paul outlines the dangers of the twentieth-century's deadliest ideology, from Stalin's gulags to the Cuban Revolution to the current famine in Venezuela. He tackles common misconceptions about the "utopia" of socialist Europe and the false claim that there's never been "true" socialism. He also shows how college professors, leftist politicians, and the coastal elite media have played a role in covering up socialism's haunting legacy.
Rand reveals the devastating truth: for every college student sporting a Che Guevara T-shirt, there's a Venezuelan child dying of starvation. Desperate people flee communist Cuba to escape death squads, oppressive censorship, and squalid hospitals, not "free" healthcare. Socialist dictatorships like the People's Republic of China crush freedom of speech and run massive death camps while masquerading as enlightened modern nations. Far from providing economic freedom, socialist governments enslave their citizens. They offer illusory promises of safety and prosperity while restricting personal liberty, tightening state power, sapping human enterprise and making citizens dependent on the dole.
If socialism takes hold in America, it will imperil the fate of the world's freest nation, unleashing a plague of oppressive government control. The Case Against Socialism is a timely response to that threat and a call to action against the forces menacing American liberty.Author:
