Socialism: A Century Of Death And Destruction

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the socialist revolution in Russia, which was hailed as the wave of the future that would bring freedom, prosperity, equality and peace to humanity -- a "workers' paradise." Yet, in reality, whether in Soviet Russia, Communist China, or any of the other satellite and affiliated socialist centrally planned societies the actual result of socialism-in-practice was mass murder, economic stagnation and poverty, and brutal political tyrannies. Why did the dream of a "better world" become a hell-on-earth, and what lessons does it offer us for our own times?
