Great book. The author exposes the flawed nature and the inevitable tyranny of Socialism, whatever brand they want to package it in.

"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."

Winston Churchill

Obviously this is a series written from a Libertarian perspective. It really is a good read on what an evil Socialism is, how it always ends up with state oppression of the people and what complete lies Socialists get into to try to justify their actions and mistakes- often reversing previous positions and trying to justify the completely unjustifiable (slavery, death camps, etc, etc).

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Patrick Mullane on 20 Dec 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a US conservative's view of socialism. It thus takes a sceptical line on what would be more acceptable in the European political mainstream, so it might come across in tone as a tad bombastic. However, the author provides some conversation points on the origins and values of public educational systems, modern health care and the welfare state in this Great Recession. He also very well illustrates the fatal flaws of social planning via the Von Mise's pricing model. Minor drawbacks are the Author's use of chunks of text which are never properly contextualised and his dismissal of the Swedish model which seems a little too sleight of hand. Overall a worthwhile read for a conservative.

An interesting read on an alternative look at the idealism that has dogged practical socialism for decades. The intelligent and open minded among us will early in chapter one soon appreciate this is a conservative-slanted critique from the right of the political spectrum. But take away some of the more sweeping premises and ignore the author's step onto the occasional personal soapbox, and what remains is a thought-provoking perspective on socialism and the often violent, devisive and damaging political creeds that both grew up to follow and oppose it, and how that battle has affected all our lives.

Interesting too how any criticism of socialism's so dearly held ideals have inevitably brought out the internet warriors of the left with their carefully prepared one-star reviews !!!

If only for the negative reviews alone, a recommendation in itself to read the book.
