My copy just arrived from Amazon yesterday evening. A quick skim shows it to be both enlightening and entertaining. Just as with last week’s Best Book—Thomas Sowell’s Basic Economics—this one also tackles an essentially economic subject with simple, lively laymen’s language and not one chart or graph to be seen in it.
Under subchapter headings such as “Karl Marx, Lady Gaga and the Labor Theory of Value,” “Worker’s of the World, Attack Each Other,” and “Big (Socialist) Oil,” Williamson combines history, theory and modern culture to illustrate how socialism operates, how it has failed over and over again, and how it is alive and growing like kudzu in America.
Therefore, for its efforts to sound the alarm to alert all patriots and arm them with the facts they need to fight the good fight, the Prudence Prize selection committee (me) has chosen The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism as the Best Book of the Week. Click the title to go order it now.
