Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) returns for part 2 of our conversation on the ravages of socialism. On today's podcast, he focuses on modern-day socialism from Pol Pot to Hitler to Mao to the USSR – it's been tried many times but it never succeeds. Modern socialism, is, though, far more organized than in times past and has instituted steps to create crises in order to offer solutions that benefit the State and erode the people's freedoms.

Bill looks at the current riots in this country, the planning that goes into them, the training of the people on the ground (most of whom aren't from the area), and the money behind it. It is awfully similar to the rise of socialism in the last century. Ultimately, it's all about the Marxist State ruling with an iron fist and gradually wiping out the freedoms this country was founded on.

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 He takes us on a whirlwind tour of historical references in literature of perfect, utopic places, but even in those examples it never seems to turn out well.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.
