That Bastion of American Socialism – by Dmitry Orlov

by

Long but fascinating analysis of Socialism in the USA by Dmitry Orlov.

Dmitry Orlov was born in Leningrad and immigrated to the United States at the age of 12. He was   an eyewitness to the Soviet collapse over several extended visits to his Russian homeland   between the late eighties and mid-nineties. He is an engineer who has contributed to fields as    diverse as high-energy Physics and Internet security, as well as a leading Peak Oil theorist whose    writing is featured on such sites as http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net and http://www.powerswitch.org.uk.

A nationalization of the private sector can indeed be called socialist, but only when it is carried out by a socialist government. In absence of this key ingredient, a perfect melding of government and private business is, in fact, the gold standard of fascism. But nobody is crying “Fascism!” over what has been happening in the US.
