The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism (The Politically Incorrect Guides)

a book by Kevin D Williamson

(our site's book review)

A Gulag May Be Coming to a Town Near You, Depending on the Results of the 2020 Election

The Amazon blurb says that Stalin’s gulag, impoverished North Korea, collapsing Cuba...it’s hard to name a dogma that has failed as spectacularly as socialism. And yet leaders around the world continue to subject millions of people to this dysfunctional, violence-prone ideology.

In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Socialism, Kevin Williamson reveals the fatal flaw of socialism—that efficient, complex economies simply can’t be centrally planned. But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning, to various extents, the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan.

Central planning doesn't work. But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan, ObamaDon'tCare, based upon an arrogant web of lies

But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan, ObamaDon'tCare, based upon an arrogant web of lies

In this provocative book, Williamson unfolds the grim history of socialism, showing how the ideology has spawned crushing poverty, devastating famines, and horrific wars. Lumbering from one crisis to the next, leaving a trail of economic devastation and environmental catastrophe, socialism has wreaked more havoc, caused more deaths, and impoverished more people than any other ideology in history—especially when you include the victims of fascism, which Williamson notes is simply a variant of socialism.

The ultimate, covert, unstated goal of socialism is for the socialist planners themselves to rule as the citizens end up as serfs, dependent on the government for everything—open any world history book to confirm that this ALWAYS happens

Leftists have been indoctrinated—rather than taught—in high school and college, and they were prevented from thinking for themselves, which is why they all sound like hypnotized, dogma-spouting automatons; SOUNDS LIKE THE FIRST STEP IN THE BIRTH OF TYRANNY TO US!

Williamson further demonstrates:

If you thought socialism went into the dustbin of history with the collapse of the Soviet Union, think again. Socialism is alive and kicking, and it’s already spread further than you know.

Reports of Socialism's Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated—It's Spreading Like the Plague It Is

From North Korea to the American public education system, from Venezuelan oil companies to ObamaCare, the reports of socialism's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Although the Soviet Union collapsed in ignominy, the central planning impulse that guided it endures in countless industries and government policies throughout the world. As Kevin Williamson explains in this myth-busting book, socialism never works because it can't work. It assumes the authorities have all-knowing planning abilities that human beings don't possess--and can't possess. This central flaw has resulted in crushing poverty, devastating famine, and even mass murder. And yet the socialist "dream" is spreading--including here in America.

People don't value democracy like they used to—now millions in the U.S. and elsewhere are willing to accept socialism and authoritarianism, which is a bad omen

The central characteristic of all socialism is failure. Then why do leaders keep choosing it? The answer is ugly: To gain power and wealth for the leaders as it removes power and wealth from the populace!

Here a well-known socialist does what socialists always do—he got very wealthy while the poor fools dumb enough to vote for him (many merely to prove they were not racist) lost wealth

When a Country's Socialist Plan Fails, the Planners Invariably Attempt to Force Society to Conform to Their Plan, Rather Than Reform Their Plan to Conform to Society's Needs, and It Gets Bloody

Williamson says that "The central planners, of course, have no incentive to admit that their powers to act rationally are limited. When the PLAN fails—as THE PLAN ultimately must fail, being based on faulty and inadequate information—the planners invariably attempt to force society to conform to their plan, rather than reform their plan to conform to society. In truth, they cannot reform their plans to conform to society's actual needs, because they do not know what those needs are and have no way of finding out. The case of milk is a relatively simple and straightforward one: imagine how much more complicated healthcare is. Knowing that planners have little access to useful information but easy access to brute political force, Hayek predicted that attempts at central planning would lead to authoritarian misrule of the sort that characterized the socialist regimes of the mid-twentieth century, an argument he spelled out at great length in The Road to Serfdom."


Harris/Biden Will Take Less Time to Get to Authoritarian Misrule Than Many of the Socialist Strongmen around the World Took

Let us look at 2020. If Biden wins, he'll be around a few months until his senility and confusion become so blatant he is put out to pasture. The next cow in line is a walking nightmare. Harris will take less time to get to authoritarian misrule than many of the socialist strongmen around the world took. Radical progressives already knew the underlying plan: Pretend to help the little guy while gaining power and wealth for the leaders and removing power and wealth from the populace. After reading The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Socialism, you will see how the other socialist societies are becoming worse and worse for the citizens while getting better and better for the leaders. It doesn't matter whether Harris will be pulling this scam on us on purpose or because it is the underlying evil nature of socialism. It'll still happen, as Williamson describes, because it is what always happens with central planning and socialism.

So Williamson and Hayek expect socialism to degenerate into Fascism unless the socialists see the error of their ways and revert back to democracy. But socialism gives the leaders a better deal for themselves than does democracy. Seeing the progressives' socialism giving the citizens less and less of a fair deal is unlikely to get them to revert back to democracy, because democracy gives the leaders a worse deal. SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, YOU DIDN'T REALLY BUY THEIR HORSE PUCKEY THAT THEY WANTED TO BE ELECTED SO THEY COULD HELP YOU, DID YOU?!

Harris let an endless parade of child molesting priests go free because her palms were greased with silver—apparently her feigned compassion for the little guy is merely a fraud

The Biden-Harris Ticket Is a Recipe for the Death of Elections, Democracy, Freedom, Most Rights, the Constitution, and People-Centered Law and Order

To see what Harris will do, let's consult her record. She got a lot of money from the Catholic Church for her political campaigns, so when an endless parade of child molesting priests were caught, she jailed how many of these evil creeps? Not a single one! Other states were jailing abusers, but she cared not one bit for the welfare of these poor abused children, but quite a bit for political campaign money. Now you see why the progressives' socialism giving the citizens less and less of a fair deal is unlikely to get her to revert back to democracy. Democracy gives the leaders a worse deal than the progressives' socialism. Consult your history books. What have the socialist leaders ALWAYS done? Whatever gives them the most wealth and power. No exceptions! The Biden-Harris ticket is a recipe for the death of elections, democracy, freedom, most rights, the Constitution, and people-centered law and order. Progressivism may be the word, but your worst nightmare will be the reality. Tyranny awaits the unwary that buy into the lies of the Biden-Harris ticket.

In the Biden-Harris Version of Socialism, You Will Go Along to Get Along, or You Will Be Stomped Like a Cockroach—It's How Socialism Works

Once the citizens see the scam being pulled on them and wish to rebel, it will be too late. Socialists have always revamped their forces until they are ready to stomp on resistance and rebellion at a moment's notice. If you want to stay healthy in the Biden-Harris version of socialism, you will go along to get along. Or you will be stomped like a cockroach. It is how socialism works. Socialists wish to be judged by the socialism they dream of, not the one they have. This is much like how liberals that create programs want these programs to be judged by the intentions of the program creators, NOT BY THE PROGRAMS' RESULTS! This is a form of pseudoscience that can well be considered anti-science.

Williamson says that "One generation after embracing democratic socialism, India would slide into autocracy as Nehru's more masterfully socialist daughter, Indira Gandhi, installed herself as dictator. Economically and politically, socialism would prove a disaster for the emerging republic—one from which it would take nearly fifty years to begin to recover."


Democratic Socialism Is Often Seen As Communism on a Slow Train

'Democratic socialism' is often seen as communism on a slow train, where the inevitable result is centralized government power and less freedom for the individual

"Kevin D. Williamson in his book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism counts the many ways in which this ideological fraud has fallen short and left misery in its wake — except for central planners and their favored operatives. So that our terms will be clear, Mr. Williamson is referring to all strains of socialism, whether practiced by the Fabians of Western Europe’s democracies and their imitators in the United States or at the barrel of a gun, as in Castro’s Cuba, North Korea under Kim Jong-iI, the old Soviet Union or Hitler’s National Socialism. 'Democratic socialism' is often seen as communism on a slow train, where the inevitable result is centralized government power and less freedom for the individual. . . . Whether the failure of Mohandas Gandhi’s India, the 'crackdown' by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela or the 'model' of Sweden (which Mr. Williamson says 'stinks'), the result is a deep, dark hole. Even so, this book needs a second volume. There is no end to the long parade of [socialism] disasters." (Source: BOOK REVIEW: Socialism's folly across time, Wes Vernon, Washington Times)

If we let the radical left win elections (2020), all is lost and fascistic stormtroopers will be goosestepping their way to our doors

"The Left’s last Big Idea was socialism, and its enthusiasm for socialism was not and is not limited to admiration for Denmark, as Senator Bernie Sanders would have you believe. . . . Joe Biden, a 77-year-old doddering illiterate who was a doddering illiterate when he was 40. . . . 'Oh, be practical!' you say? Survey the scene in 2020 and tell me with a straight face that it represents the flowering of some practical good. As the philosopher might have asked, 'If the pragmatism you followed brought you to this, of what use was the pragmatism?'" (Source: Socialism . . . But?, Kevin D. Williamson, National Review)

Those Who Decline Socialism's Invitation Are Not Just Ungrateful: They Are Traitors Deserving the Guillotine, According to Leftist Theory

Those who decline socialism's invitation are not just ungrateful: they are traitors to the cause of human perfection. Dissent is therefore not mere disagreement but treachery. Treachery is properly met not with arguments but with the guillotine, the concentration camp, the purge, as history illustrates

". . . socialism . . . is a motor fueled by this corollary: that the multitude unaccountably colludes in perpetuating its own bondage and must therefore be, in Rousseau's ominous phrase, 'forced to be free.' . . . The socialist pretends to have glimpsed paradise on earth. Those who decline the invitation to embrace the vision are not just ungrateful: they are traitors to the cause of human perfection. Dissent is therefore not mere disagreement but treachery. Treachery is properly met not with arguments but (as circumstances permit) the guillotine, the concentration camp, the purge.'"—Roger Kimball

Liberals are so RIGHT there is simply nothing to discuss, so they avoid debates (which they nearly always lose against conservatives!)

If you talk to a Moonie (Unification Church follower) and question her beliefs, she will not discuss or explain; she will tremble, turn red, and scream like a banshee. Similarly, if you talk to a liberal (liberal narrative follower) and question her beliefs, she will not discuss or explain; she will tremble, turn red, and scream like a banshee. Liberals are so RIGHT there is simply nothing to discuss, so they avoid debates (which they nearly always lose against conservatives!). Further, they will attempt to destroy anyone who questions the liberal narrative for having the nerve to question anything liberal. Liberals are hateful, violent, racists (against whites). There should be freedom of speech for liberals, but none for conservatives, they say. If liberals come to power, conservatives' freedom of speech will disappear like ice on a hot griddle. If you don't care about freedom, vote for Democrats.

Karl Marx should have left his ivory tower occasionally and found out how real people act. His socialist theories worked great on paper, but not so good in real life. Scientific fact #1: people work better if they get rewarded (i.e., capitalism)
