The Dark History of Swedish Socialism

0 ½ min

Everyone knows that socialism is newly fashionable as an idea and system. With that has come a certain level of whitewashing of the real history. I’m not just speaking of the totalitarian variety with its poverty, inflation, starvation, and mass death. It’s especially true of the kinder, gentler versions, which turn out to be not so kind or gentle. 

I hope you enjoy and learn from this video I made based on Phil Magness’s revealing article “Even Swedish Socialism Was Violent.”
