Andrei Znamenski: Top Down Planning…Again

Broadcast Running Time: 31:06

Every time socialism has been tried, it has failed and it has failed partly because government tried planning every aspect of everyone’s life: an endeavor doomed to crash and burn every time.  Joining us today is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis.  He moved here after his childhood in Russia and has studied the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement.  He describes the beginning of communism in Russia and how the powers that be shut down intellectual debate, controlled the media, and instituted a repressive cancel culture.  I think it’s obvious the U.S. is on a very similar path today.  Consider us warned.
