We all know the answer to this question: has socialism ever worked in the history of it being tried? Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) joins us for part 1 of a two-part series on the ravages of socialism. He takes us on a whirlwind tour of historical references in literature of perfect, utopic places, but even in those examples it never seems to turn out well. The Pilgrims put this into practice when they arrived here in 1620, but it too failed, forcing them to abandon it in favor of private property.
Bill discusses the transition in society from a covenant based on God to contracts where God was replaced by the State. The French Revolutionists wanted a society without God but it failed. Many church leaders today claim that the Bible advocates for socialism, but Bill gives several examples refuting that.
