United States of Socialism: Who's Behind It. Why It's Evil. How to Stop It. by Dinesh D'Souza
Category: United States
This book was published last year by All Points Books and takes approximately 10.1 hours to read.
Socialism is back, with a vengeance. Dinesh D'Souza refutes its pernicious promises with his trademark mix of intellectual heft and scathing wit. After the fall of the USSR in 1989, the world thought that the flawed ideology of socialism was defeated forever. And for a while, it seemed to be true. But socialism survived in the rarified sector of the academy and it has now been injected once again into mainstream Democratic politics by a coalition of the old and new generations of the left, personified by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign was surprisingly popular with American youth and recent polls show that more than half of millennials have a favorable view of socialism. The Green New Deal and other revolutionary policies of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the face of the millennial left, have received support from nearly every Democratic presidential candidate. Who can take on these ambitious politicians and expose their empty promises? Scheduled to be published at the peak of campaign season in spring 2020, The United States of Socialism will thoroughly examine and decisively refute the utopian claims of socialism that have wormed their way back into American politics. Only Dinesh D'Souza is equipped with the intellectual heft, the polemical flair, and the keen eye of a documentary filmmaker that are necessary to fight back the socialist tide before it crashes on American shores.
