The most compelling case for why socialism is immoral comes from someone with first-hand experience. This is the story of a Soviet refugee, one whose experiences and insights lay bare a truth that challenges the very foundations of socialism.
On March 6, 2021, the streets of several Portuguese cities were adorned with communist flags and other decorations. These scenes looked like they were straight out of the Soviet Union or perhaps a present-day communist country. In reality, though, we’re talking about cities like Lisbon or Porto. But why is communism still a thing in Portugal?
In this first piece of a series addressing myths about the Soviet Union, we will focus on the issues of poverty, inequality, and quality of life…
The Chinese regime inherently rejects the ideas and values of individual liberty, meaningful economic freedom, transparency and human rights
Somehow, the USSR still has its supporters — and they likely believe one or more myths about Soviet Russia. In this video, we debunk 8 myths that linger about the Soviet Union, even now, more than 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Also cited are these videos: NIMBYism vs. Gentrification: The Truth […]
Just as COVID has changed our lives in many ways since 2020, Chernobyl changed the world in 1986. These were two great disasters emanating from two major communist nations. The results and consequences of both will affect us for a very long time, maybe even forever.
As many will know, Chernobyl was instrumental in accelerating the end of the Soviet Union and is critical to our understanding of this period. However, could COVID be the key to understanding, in the future, perhaps, the end of Communist China?
It’s a shameful anniversary: October 1, 1949 is the date the People’s Republic of China was founded. Ever since, a country steeped in a tradition of philosophical wisdom has been put through the torture chamber — literally and figuratively — of communism. It raises the question: how did communism take root? The answer lies in […]
It was at the ripe-old age of 12 that Ayn Rand first heard the Communist principle that Man must exist for the sake of the state. That’s what started it all. Rand’s writing and her philosophy, Objectivism, were direct responses to that immoral idea — and they have touched hundreds of millions of lives. Rand’s […]
The past couple of decades may have suggested that China’s competent, authoritarian style of governance may be an alternative model for the world. However, the regime is now faced with the consequences of its actions with a slim off ramp to preserve progress and power at the same time.
The Prague Spring of 1968 has a legacy that proved influential in the downfall of the Eastern Bloc a generation later, and continues to inspire to this day.
The history of Marxism (and its offspring, Communism) in Latin America is a sordid one. Many of its brutal dictators, including Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Pedro Castillo, have used the Marxist doctrine as a stepstool to power. But, as this video argues, those dictators only succeeded in plunging their countries into poverty — as Marxism promises to do anywhere its ideas are adopted.
Within and beyond her literature, Zora Neale Hurston was an outspoken anti-communist who opposed both the New Deal and interventionism abroad
For 50 years, America has offered an escape hatch for victims of the Castro regime; now President Obama is slamming it shut.
In my mind, then, Castro is a lot like the minimum wage: something we must stubbornly decry even though there are far greater ills in the world.
An astonishingly high percentage of millennials do not know who communist leaders like Mao Zedong and Vladimir Lenin were.
Mao Zedong, glorified creator of the PRC slaughterhouse, is considered responsible for the death of over 70 million fellow Chinese citizens during his reign. The carnage was for various reasons: state-enforced relocation, implementation of various socialist schemes, mass pogroms against citizens possessing counter-revolutionary tendencies and, sadly, the worst famine in human history.
