Shakedown Socialism: Unions, Pitchforks, Collective Greed, The Fallacy of Economic Equality, and other Optical Illusions of “Redistributive Justice”

From the Amazon Product description:

This is a brilliant study, profusely illustrated with cartoons and propaganda posters. Atbashian explains why Socialism cannot work. He exposes the injustice of “Collective Greed” and shows why Economic Equality is a fraud. The book is an eye-opener as the author illustrates his points with examples drawn from his life in the Soviet Union before 1994 and more recent events in the USA.

“Oleg Atbashian has written a timely warning for Americans about the collectivists among us and their plans for the future. I hope everyone reads this book.”– David Horowitz

Oleg Atbashian, a writer and graphic artist from Ukraine, currently lives in New York. In the USSR he was a teacher, a translator, a worker, a freelance journalist, and at one time a propaganda artist, creating visual agitprop for the local Party committee in a Siberian town. He moved to the United States in 1994, hoping to forget about politics and enjoy life in a country that was ruled by reason and common sense, whose citizens were appreciative of constitutional rights, the rule of law, and the prosperity of free market capitalism. But what he found was a society deeply infected by the leftist disease of “progressivism” that was jeopardizing real societal progress.

It’s only $9.22 at Amazon. Not available on Kindle but with all the graphics that’s probably OK. Besides, the price for this 134-page paperback [quick read] is less than most Kindle books. I don’t get anything if you buy it. Dammit.
