Socialism has never worked but it is easy to sell to those who refuse to study history which is why progressives use academia as their base of operations. I'm willing to bet that "Animal Farm" and "1984" are no longer recommended reading in today's high schools. Big Brother is only a TV reality show to many of the young today who regard socialism and big government as a good thing because that's how the mainstream media presents it. If this country is to survive the disastrous results of socialist experiments in government, we need to educate our citizenry on what socialism actually is which is neither benign nor without hazard.
The Czech director of the film classic, "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest," Milos Forman, recently weighed in on Barack Obama denying that the president is a socialist in a New York Times opinion piece. He wrote:
"Now, years later, I hear the word "socialist" being tossed around by the likes of Rick, Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and others. President Obama, they warn, is a socialist. The critics cry, "Obamacare is socialism!" MORE>>>>>>>>>
