Publisher Description

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 The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism. In this new PI 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.

Quotes

  • “In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism, Kevin Williamson cuts through the confusion about socialism, providing long overdue clarity and precision. In the process he exposes the insidious nature of the ideology, including its various American forms, and he drives a stake through the heart of today’s apologetics for this menace. The book is scholarly, informative, and absolutely fascinating.”

    - David Limbaugh, author of Crimes against Liberty
  • “It’s been said that socialism would only work in Heaven—where it’s not needed—and in Hell—where they’ve already got it. With the cool detachment of an exorcist, 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 and author of Liberal Fascism
  • “Kevin Williamson puts his finger on what makes government planners’ dreams of running our lives not only ineffective, but dangerous: they don’t know half as much as they think they do. Exploring the socialists’ philosophy in their own words, 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, nationally syndicated talk radio host and author of Liberty and Tyranny
  • “Kevin Williamson takes a look at socialism in all its forms, and he uncovers some facts that might make even would-be socialists wince: socialism isn’t just bad for business, but bad for the poor, bad for the environment, and bad for your health. If you want to understand the deeper ideological forces at work in our politics today, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism is a good place to start.”

    - Larry Kudlow, host of CNBC’s the Kudlow Report

    " Great book. Great series. This guide will enlighten you as to all the ins and outs of Socialism: why it's inherently flawed and why it still lays claim to legions of enthusiastic proponents despite its truly abysmal track record. "

    " I love truth. This book shows the continued falacies of socialism, and the refusal to accept the true impact that socialism has on cultures, people groups, and even the earth. Socialism is a plague that should be eradicated. An excellent book. "

    " Even tho has important info, not as 'fun' a read as others in the PiG collection. Bottom lining it: Socialism sucks, has n never will work, yet useful idiots continue to implement. Best example of American socialism = The public/government school system. TRUE DAT!!!! "

    " Intellectually dishonest. Central planning isn't socialism. Central planning is model of organization, which nearly every single group or enterprise uses. It's cute to run around quoting libertarian or Austrian economists, but taking snippets out of context is pretty dishonest and lazy. "
