Socialism: The Walking Dead

Written by Gary North on February 7, 2014

Socialism is dead.¬† We lived to see it. There are so few traces of socialist thinking these days, that we must search for it on obscure blogs. I came across such a site this morning.

Variety, the gossip newspaper for Hollywood for almost 80 years, has published its last daily issue. It’s the end of an era, fortunately. Published on paper, nobody under age 50 read it.
