Socialism Course: Introduction
Waterfall is a guided, in-depth program for everyone interested in studying systematically issues upon which Objectivism has something distinctive and important to say.
Executive Summaries written by Senior Scholar Stephen Hicks, Researcher Andrei Volkov, and others are provided for the longer items to give busy people an essentialized overview and/or to highlight the key themes for those who will pursue the in-depth reading.
This course: Socialism. Examine the aspirations, arguments, strategies, and disasters of socialist theory and practice—as well as explore the strongest criticisms of socialism—from many philosophers, economists, and historians such as Karl Marx, Ludwig von Mises, and, of course, Ayn Rand.
