Fidel Castro’s death has brought about many opinions on his leadership in Cuba. In this week’s boralogue, John dissects the reaction by progressive elites like Canada’s Justin Trudeau who praise Castro’s governance and shows the truth behind socialism by looking at what actually happened in Cuba under El Comandante.
Socialism is dangerous and has never succeeded in history, but it has somehow grown in popularity recently. Mike Shotwell (www.mikeshotwell.com), author of the new book Immersed in Red, gives us an insider’s perspective from his time growing up in a Marxist household. He discusses the realities of socialism and how it has influenced the Obama administration.
ISIS has been successful in recruiting young people to their cause but one country is fighting back. Josh Siegel (www.dailysignal.com), News Editor for the Daily Signal explains how a group in the United Kingdom is helping to stop ISIS recruitment and the controversies surrounding it.
Federal agencies are interfering with property rights and owners are beginning stand up to them. Ron Ewart (www.narlo.org), President of the National Association of Rural Landowners describes how government bureaucrats have waged war on cattle ranchers in the west and how reform is needed in agencies that are rife with radical environmentalism.
John’s quote of the week:
“The reactions to the death of Fidel Castro among the progressive elites are extremely telling of why the world is where it is today. Why are they reacting badly to populist uprisings in the West? It’s because those uprisings are threatening the 50-year long march through Western culture to “transform” it from a free market system to a government-controlled socialist utopia.”
