Not Just Body Counts,
This review is from: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism (Politically Incorrect Guides (Paperback)) (Paperback)
In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism, Kevin Williamson goes beyond the typical critiques of socialism that often over emphisize the body counts that 20th century socialists managed to accrue. While the body count is still present, Williamson manages to strike the root of socialism by explaining the practical reasons why it is, in all of its incarnations, destined for the dustbin of history.
Looking at socialism from a decidedly Austrian perspective, Williamson tackles a range of issues from the inherent flaws of central planning to Labor Theory of Value, as well as socialist/progressive sacred cows like public schooling and universal healthcare.
Great for the casual reader as well as the seasoned political veteran. Another fine addition to an already great series of books.
