Publisher's Summary

Liberals scoff when conservatives denounce Obama and his policies as socialist. After all, they argue, Obama isn’t Stalin and America is nothing like the Soviet Union. But socialism doesn’t always resemble the Berlin Wall or the Iron Curtain, as National Review editor Kevin Williamson proves in his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism.
In this new P.I. Guide, Williamson reveals the truth: despite what the liberal politicians and leftist pundits would have you believe, the policies coming out of Washington today are nothing more than socialism disguised as equality and justice for all. Tracing socialism back to its roots, Williamson defines this misunderstood ideology, explains the different forms socialism takes on, and shows how it is thriving right here in the United States in the form of “Obamacare”, financial regulations, and more. Offering conservatives the political and rhetorical ammunition they need to combat the liberal lies about one of the most misunderstood ideologies in modern history, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism reveals why everything socialism purports to do, the free market does better.

Critic Reviews

“Kevin Williamson methodically demolishes the allegedly angelic good intentions behind socialism to reveal the demonic consequences of its implementation.” (Jonah Goldberg, editor at large of National Review Online)
“Williamson shows why the problem with socialism isn’t just that it hurts the economy, but that it undermines all the institutions that allow a free society to function—and that is why it can’t coexist with liberty.” (Mark Levin)
“Kevin Williamson cuts through the confusion about socialism, providing long overdue clarity and precision.…[This] book is scholarly, informative, and absolutely fascinating.” (David Limbaugh, author of Crimes Against Liberty)

Karl Marx Was a C**t Who Let His Children Starve

This is a book of arguments to use against Socialism/Communism (the author says they are one and the same) if debating a neo-socialist. Use it and you’ll probably win, given that being woefully ignorant is normal for too much of the country. Williamson outlines major anti-socialist authors since the 1800s and their arguments, then goes on to target recent regimes, particularly Venezuela. He begins each chapter with a pithy quote. (The problem with Capitalism is capitalists; the problem with Socialism is Socialism--Willi Schlamm, ex-Socialist) It’s a book for the already converted who want an historical rundown, at the same time stockpiling ammo to trounce that idiot you work with who thinks Bernie Sanders had all the right ideas. I was informed and entertained by it but then I’m not a socialist believer. If you are, then listening to this book will be like visiting the other side of the moon.
