The former is pegged on the far Right, the latter on the far Left. Whether the goal of a tyrant is achieving utopia, the results are always the same: purges and show trials, enforcing God’s will, or establishing a master Aryan race, man-made famines and concentration camps, war and mass murder. Socialism, fascism, and the Tyranny of Big Government surveys the main statist politico-economic systems.
They impose one-party rule, political, religious, control or abolish private property, and censor or oppress racial, and ideological enemies. And it concludes with a brilliant analysis of the nature and causes of tyranny. They are all examples of statism and totalitarianism. These systems oppose freedom, liberty, and individual rights.
But this categorization is flat-out wrong. Despite their superficial differences, fascism and socialism—along with Nazism and theocracy—are fundamentally the same. They also seek to export their particular brand of tyranny throughout the world. How do tyrants enslave entire nations?In popular political discourse, fascism and socialism are portrayed as polar opposites.
Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian
And why socialism, requires either fraud or armed robbery in order to achieve power, understood as an economic system based on government ownership of the means of production, and then the establishment of a totalitarian dictatorship in order to remain in power. It takes the Communists to openly establish socialism.
. This essay explains why Nazi Germany was a socialist state, not a capitalist one. Social democrats do not have the stomach for armed robbery and the mass murder it entails, and thus do not establish socialism but merely a more hampered market economy.
MARXISM/SOCIALISM, A SOCIOPATHIC PHILOSOPHY CONCEIVED IN GROSS ERROR AND IGNORANCE, CULMINATING IN ECONOMIC CHAOS, ENSLAVEMENT, TERROR, AND MASS MURDER: A CONTRIBUTION TO ITS DEATH
It shows instead that profits exist prior to wages, by virtue of workers producing and selling products in exchange not for wages but for sales revenues, which are initially all profit. In sharpest contrast, under socialism economic planning is the monopoly of no more than a relative handful of people, the members of the socialist “central planning board.
Thus, “the alleged economic planning of socialism is in fact not economic planning at all, as I remarked in my essay, but the forcible suppression of economic planning—the forcible suppression of the economic planning of everyone in the economic system outside the membership of the central planning board.
Absent the economic planning of capitalism, declining production, the result is economic chaos, and starvation. My essay demolishes the attempt of Marxism/Socialism to portray the free workers of capitalism as only nominally free and in actuality slaves. For example, a willingness of workers to work for minimum subsistence, rather than die of starvation, is irrelevant to the wages they actually need to accept, it shows how, under capitalism, which are set at a far higher level by the competition of employers for labor.
For its size, comprehensive, this essay is the most powerful, and in-depth critique of Marxism/Socialism and defense of capitalism ever written. It demolishes the belief, introduced by Adam Smith and then serving as the starting point for Marx, that profits are a deduction from wages. It does this by virtue of the fact that once real wages have increased sufficiently, workers can afford to accept the comparatively lower wages that accompany shorter hours, can afford to keep their children home longer, and can afford to accept the comparatively lower take-home wages that enable employers to provide them with improvements in working conditions that do not pay for themselves through increases in efficiency.
All this, much more, is contained just in the first part of my essay, and much, which is titled “The Gist of Marxism/Socialism and Its Refutation.
Socialism Is Evil: The Moral Case Against Marx's Radical Dream
Socialism is evil briefly tackles some of the most important moral controversies surrounding Marx’s socialism, providing supporters of individual liberty with the tools they need to stop the rise of socialism in its tracks. The greatest threat facing the united states today doesn’t come from China, Iran, or even Russia; it’s the growing number of Americans who believe Karl Marx’s socialism provides the best strategy for making our communities safer, healthier, and more prosperous.
Haskins argues it would be dangerous to attempt to create Marx’s utopian socialist world, and even more importantly, that such an attempt would be so highly immoral that it could reasonably be called “evil. In socialism is evil, why marx’s socialism will never be completely adopted, Haskins makes the moral case against socialism and also describes in detail what socialists believe, called “democratic socialism” by some, the differences between socialism and communism, and why even the more moderate European-style socialism, is highly immoral and anti-American.
Many socialists are kind, but sometimes, generous people with good intentions, good intentions can create devastating results. But the most significant danger posed by socialism isn’t that its implementation would lead to greater poverty and fewer property rights, it’s that socialism would create numerous moral problems, including the limits it would place on individual liberty and religious freedom.
In socialism is evil: the moral case against marx’s radical dream, conservative columnist and think tank research fellow Justin Haskins examines the moral perils of Marx’s socialism and explains why if socialism were to be imposed in its fullest form, it wouldn’t just damage people’s freedoms, it would obliterate them.
Ending Big Government: The Essential Case for Capitalism and Freedom
It is a system that has created more wealth, offered more opportunity, and lifted more people out of poverty than any other system. Yet it is relentlessly demonized. Michael dahlen dispels these and many other myths. This is the system of limited government, the system of economic and political freedom. Why capitalism is moral and practical.
He shows that a system of free markets and limited government is not only practical; he shows that it is moral, as it is the only system that recognizes each individual’s inalienable right to his own life. A provocative weave of history, and political economy, philosophy, Ending Big Government shows that laissez-faire capitalism is incontestably superior to statism.
We are told that businessmen pay “starvation wages, mass unemployment, and that the free market is impractical—prone to crises, ” that the rich get richer while the poor get poorer, depressions, and coercive monopolies. What do these problems have in common? They were all caused by statism. Statism denotes any system of big government, to regulate and control the economy, a government that uses its power to confiscate and redistribute wealth, a government that gains power at the expense of individual freedom, and to micromanage citizens’ behavior.
As michael dahlen shows in ending big government: The Essential Case for Capitalism and Freedom, the only rational alternative to statism and the only antidote to the problems it has caused is free-market, laissez-faire capitalism. And why big government is neitheramerica has faced many fiscal and economic problems in the last decade: the housing bubble and the financial crisis, stagnant economic growth and high unemployment, record budget deficits and unsustainable debt.
Three Essays CAPITALISM: THE CURE FOR RACISM plus THE WHITE “PRIVILEGE” SCAM and THE MORAL NECESSITY OF DISCRIMINATION AND HATE SPEECH
The main essay "capitalism: the cure for racism" is an explanation of how capitalism and the unhampered profit motive achieve equal pay for equal work and operate against all aspects of racial discrimination in the marketplace, and how the unjust treatment of blacks both in the history of the United States and in contemporary American society is the result of government intervention, not capitalism.
. This physical force is directed not only against blacks but, against third parties, most notably businessmen and capitalists, whose free, equally important, unforced actions would not only raise the level of blacks to equality with that of whites but also continually further raise the level of both. The white `privilege' scam" exposes an attempt to lead people to regard individual rights as mere privileges and thus to pave the way for their elimination.
The moral necessity of discrimination and Hate Speech" shows why these phenomena are morally necessary and exposes the confusions on which opposition to them rest. The overall conclusion of the book as a whole is that the fundamental problem of blacks is not discrimination, but the use of physical force, not even racial discrimination, or the threat of physical force, by the state and by private parties acting with the sanction of the state.

The U. S. The dollar has lost most of its value due to the inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve. It surveys the politico-economic history of the U. S. Find out the rEAL history of how the U. S. There was no welfare state, no central bank, no fiat money and no income tax for most of the century, no deficit spending to speak of, and no antitrust laws or federal regulatory agencies until the end of the century.

The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy
These were the ruthless tactics of a Soviet-style police state, not a democratic republic. The red thread asks the simple question: why? what is it that motivated these anti-trump conspirators from inside and around the obama administration and clinton networks to depart so drastically from “politics as usual” to participate in a seditious effort to overturn an election? Finding clues in an array of sources, and the rest of the Fusion GPS team; from John Brennan to the numerous Clintonistas still patrolling the Washington Swamp after all these years, American Betrayal, honed in her dazzling work, to construct a fascinating series of ideological profiles of well-known but little understood anti-Trump actors, Diana West uses her trademark investigative skills, from James Comey to Christopher Steele to Nellie Ohr, and more.

Marxism Unmasked LvMI
They were transcribed by Bettina Bien Greaves from what he actually said. Thus can we hear this passage: "it is not true, as Marx said, that the improvements in technology are available only to the exploiters and that the masses are living in a state much worse than on the eve of the Industrial Revolution.
Whether or not you agree with this observation, Mises comes across in these lectures as brilliant but very warm and charming in an old world sense. To search for mises institute titles, enter a keyword and LvMI short for Ludwig von Mises Institute; e. G. Depression LvMI. He discusses marx and his place in the history of ideas, the manner in which his followers have covered up his errors, the destruction wrought by his dangerous ideology, and how the Marxists themselves have worked for so long to save Marxism from itself.
We can't go back in time and attend his New York seminar, or follow him to the speaking engagements that he held in the 1950s and '60s. But we do have access to what he said. That's because what is printed here are not prepared lectures. He discusses marxist claims about history and refutes the Marxist smear of the Industrial Revolution.
The approach is systematic but casual, so the reader encounters wonderful insights in the form of short asides. He is warm, passionate, funny, and learned.
