Your Socialist Zombie Survival Kit – Foundation for Economic Education – Working for a free and prosperous world

Like a TV show zombie, just when you thought it had been struck down for good, socialism keeps rearing its ugly head. Will nothing keep this pernicious ideology buried in the dustbin of history? No record of failure? No death toll? No indisputable economic critique?

Unfortunately envy springs eternal, and with every state-generated economic downturn, there will always be those susceptible to the siren song of class warmongers: the urge to scapegoat, the draw of freebies, the lure of loot.

America’s socialist demagogue du jour is presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. He may not have won the Democratic nomination, but he has won over many young people to the dream of “democratic socialism”: a “kindler, gentler” socialism, under which state officials given absolute economic power will somehow not be corrupted absolutely, thanks to the magic of voting.

Eternal vigilance is the price of protecting our remaining liberty. So let us again review the ironclad case against socialism, so we can strike it down once more before it lurches any closer. Consider this page of resources your socialist zombie survival kit.

Each section below starts out with a quote from the article “What is Democratic Socialism? Q & A,” published by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). Each claim is followed by articles that refute it. Following that is a list of classic quotes against socialism.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
