Tucker Carlson wanted to know why the term “socialism” was catching on, when its failures and brutalism have been so evident over the last century. So he asked Heritage expert David Azerrad.
Azerrad, who directs Heritage’s Simon Center for Principles and Politics, had good news/bad news answer. The good news: the new “socialists” aren’t looking to copy the Soviet Union. The bad news: today’s socialism is a bolder, more aggressive version of the same liberalism that has already failed in America.
Heritage is able to attract some of the best minds in the conservative movement, thanks to our generous members. Please watch for yourself and see why even Tucker Carlson marveled at the clear way in which Azerrad explained an otherwise complicated subject. Thank you for making that possible.
Do you think the people who are calling for socialism just want big government, or something even more radical?
