Books to Give to Socialists This Christmas

Inspired by a list put out be Merryn Somerset Webb, I recommend, ranked from easiest to read to most difficult:

Harry Browne's Why Government Doesn't Work

Thomas Dilorenzo's The Problem with Socialism

Gary North's Marx's Religion of Revolution

Friedrich Hayek's The Road to Serfdom

And if you don't own these books yourself, get them for yourself, they are all important books for the anti-socialist.



  1. Apropos of books on political economy, there is a review of a biography of Karl Polanyi on the NY Review of Books website that is worth reading. Polanyi was a leftist Austrian born 1886 that did intellectual battle with Mises, the socialist pricing debate being a main point of contention. Both the subject and author of the article subscribe to the predictable statist nonsense, but still an interesting read. It's called "The Mad from Red Vienna"

  2. Socialists don't read books unless they have pretty pictures of Dear Leaders on them or Oprah told them to.

  3. I would suggest Frank Chodorov's "Fugitive Essays," or "The Rise and Fall of Society."
