This is a brilliant book that presents an excellent working form of socialism, one that's prosperous and peacefully implemented. The author points out that it is not necessary for change come about through violent or coercive methods. It is just a matter of the people uniting under the desire for a fairer and more equitable solution to the problems that the vast majority face.
My parents are firm believers in capitalism, and I embraced their views for quite some time. It was only recently that I began to re-think everything. With the housing crisis, the bailouts, and all the scandals and corruption I just can't see how the average Joe can get a fair shake. Then I started looking into our economic history and found that the people have been being fleeced in the name of capitalism for a very long time.
People are always saying that socialism can't ever be truly implemented, but I'm seeing capitalism as the failed system right now, one that can never be truly exist as long as robber barons continue to keep congress in their pockets.
The only system that gives the people the power, protection, and prosperity that they deserve is socialism, and this book will explain all of that. True socialism would put an end to the thievery and suffering that the current system has caused. Something has to change, and this book will show us how to make that change and explain why it's so necessary.
