5.0 out of 5 stars Opened my mind to the pragmatism of socialism
By Nathaniel Bozarth on February 6, 2020
Since the early 20th century there has been a systematic program to villify socialistic systems of economic organization. In fact, part of the idea of the "American Dream" - homeownership - was first proliferated on a government hope that ownership would vest U.S. citizens more firmly in capitalism since they would own "a piece of the pie". I had read before in many anti-racist books that socialism could lead to a more equitable future. In fact, I had read before that capitalism was inherently racist (and it totally is, check out the 1619 project). I did not have a basic understanding, however of what socialism was.

Griffin makes the case for socialism simply and eloquently. Not only does he make the case, however, he also lays out what socialism practically means. Contrary to what many of us were taught growing up, socialism means ownership and equity. Socialism creates a clear way to eliminate the wealth gap and give EVERYONE a piece of the pie.

For me, Why America Needs Socialism sparked some practical ideas of next steps - how we might move the needle in the short term.

Definitely worth buying both to read and reference.
