10 Books to Understand Why Socialism is Liberty’s Mortal Enemy

Read any two or three of these recommended books and you’ll understand more history, economics and philosophy than any socialist would ever want you to know

The Great Library of Alexandria in Egypt boasted the largest collection of texts (scrolls, actually) in the ancient world. Some estimates put the number as high as 400,000.

But that’s tiny compared to the 170 million items in the world’s largest book collection of our time, the Library of Congress in Washington.

Thomas Jefferson famously wrote, “I cannot live without books.” Neither can I. So from time to time, I enjoy suggesting some to friends and family.

With the recent resurgence of socialist ideology around the world, it’s more important than ever that people understand what it’s all about. It is an insidious poison that has killed tens of millions over the decades. A good place to start is this free eBook: The XYZs of Socialism.

Every lover of liberty ought to have his or her own collection of books on the subject. That includes a few volumes that explain why socialism is liberty’s mortal enemy. Toward that end, here are some very good ones I recommend:

  1. Was Jesus a Socialist? by Lawrence W. Reed.
  2. The Devil and Karl Marx: Communism’s Long March of Death, Deception and Infiltration by Paul Kengor.
  3. The Case Against Socialism by Rand Paul.
  4. Hitler, God and the Bible by Ray Comfort.
  5. Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History that Turned a Generation Against America by Mary Grabar.
  6. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Communism by Paul Kengor.
  7. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism by Kevin Williamson, et al.
  8. Socialism as a Secular Creed: A Modern Global History by Andrei Znamenski.
  9. Heaven on Earth: The Rise, Fall and Afterlife of Socialism by Joshua Muravchik.
  10. In his most celebrated work, Human Action, the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises wrote:

“A man who chooses between drinking a glass of milk and a glass of a solution of potassium cyanide does not choose between two beverages; he chooses between life and death. A society that chooses between capitalism and socialism does not choose between two social systems; it chooses between social cooperation and the disintegration of society.”

Making the proper choice must begin with knowing the truth. Read any two or three of these recommended books and you’ll understand more history, economics and philosophy than any socialist would ever want you to know.

  1. Disculpe señor Reed, pero Ray Comfort es un creacionista. Él podrá decir una o dos verdades de sentido común; pero cualquier opinión que dé, no importa lo interesante que sea, siempre estará sesgada por su fanatismo religioso. Yo no lo incluiría en esta lista. / Excuse me Mr. Reed, but Ray Comfort is a creationist. He may tell one or two common sense truths; But whatever opinion he give, no matter how interesting it is, it will always be skewed by his religious fanaticism. I would not include it on this list.

    1. That’s religious bigotry. Why deprive yourself of the wisdom in this book just because you have a grudge against creationists? Are you that insecure in your belief that everything came from nothing?
