The fight against socialism in America is no mere intellectual exercise; it is a war against a poisonous doctrine that will end our republic. True socialists don’t even try to hide that goal. They are working tirelessly to accomplish it.
For the vast majority of us in the Western world, it is difficult to imagine the cultural upheavals that resulted from the Industrial Revolution. Its first phase in Europe and America, from the late 1700s to the early 1800s, witnessed the beginning of a civilizational transformation from
rural life rooted in agriculture to urban life based on machines and factories.
The result was “creative destruction” – the tearing down of an older way of life to make way for the new. The Industrial Revolution not only laid the foundation stones for our modern economy, but it did so by generating plenty of human misery, such as child labor, dangerous working conditions, and lung-choking pollution.
