The Socialism Myth

The Socialism Myth

$12.99 $9.76

by Oliver DeMille

Socialism is built on a lie.

It is based on several of them, in fact. Proponents of socialism in all its variations generally promise that adopting their policies will decrease the number of people suffering and living in poverty. In reality, it always does the opposite—increasing the numbers of people stuck in poverty.

Proponents of socialism typically promise that implementing their policies will increase equality in society. In the long term, the policies of socialism always do the opposite. The more socialism is implemented, the more inequality ravages a society. Promoters of socialism routinely promise to make life easier and better for the masses, but in the real world socialism always does the opposite—making life more difficult for almost everyone.

When confronted with these realities, supporters of socialism argue that these failing attempts occurred because the people leading past socialist projects “didn’t do it correctly.” And then they promise: “This time will be different.”

But it never is.

Others insist that while it has historically failed in practice, socialism is good in theory. But in truth, the theory of socialism is flawed.


In this new e-book, Oliver DeMille deconstructs the history, doctrine and mythology of socialism and – in his characteristic style – gives us the tools to analyze, discuss and combat it effectively.
