The Rise and Fall of Socialism

Below are the 15 sections of PBS's three-episode documentary, "Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism." After about a half year of sporadic searching, I can safely say that this is the best multi-media, historical account of socialism that I've been able to find.

Speaking to the point I made in The Cloward-Piven Strategy post, the best method to combat the indoctrination of liberal academia is to independently research historical and current events - to deny liberals the chance to frame the debate with their own terms.

At a time when banks, the auto-industry and the credit unions are in the cross hairs of nationalization, and when our government has just signed the single largest redistribution of wealth into law this country has ever seen - it's important to understand the context of the current socialism/ capitalism debate and the events which have shaped it into what it is.

I encourage you to watch every single one of these 10 minute clips in the order I have posted them; perhaps not all at once but whenever you have the time. PBS does a masterful job of connecting the dots and explaining why it is socialism has never succeeded, and assuredly never will.
