Interlude. Required Reading From IBD Editorials

The attached article from Investor's Business Daily Editorials captures some of the essense of this blog nicely.  And, it's from the horse's mouth, so to speak.  The author, Svetlana Kunin, has experienced life in a socialist country, and now lives in the U.S.  Heed her warning.

In her book, "The Forgotten Man," Amity Shlaes recounts the American economic history of the 20's and 30's and how so many influential people were initially drawn to Stalin's socialist "paradise," erroneously thinking the Soviets had miraculously solved the ills of inequality.

So much for the tattered, empty promises of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov and those of his ilk.  Why are we returning to those tired and utterly dehumanizing philosophies?

Quotient out.
