Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling audiobook

This program is read by the author.

For those who witnessed the global collapse of socialism, its resurrection in the 21st century comes as a surprise, even a shock. How can socialism work now when it has never worked before?

In this path-breaking audiobook, best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza argues that the socialism advanced today by the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Ilhan Omar, and Elizabeth Warren is very different from the socialism of Lenin, Mao, and Castro. It is “identity socialism”, a marriage between classic socialism and identity politics. America’s typical socialist is not a working-class union man but a Black Lives Matter activist, a transgender militant, or a prophet of environmental apocalypse. Today’s socialists claim to model themselves not on Mao’s Great Leap Forward or even Venezuelan socialism but rather on the “socialism that works” in Scandinavian countries like Norway and Sweden.

This is the new face of socialism that D’Souza confronts and decisively refutes with his trademark incisiveness, wit, and originality. He shows how socialism abandoned the working class and found new recruits by drawing on the resentments of race, gender, and sexual orientation. He reveals how it uses the Venezuelan, not the Scandinavian, formula. D’Souza chillingly documents the full range of lawless, gangster, and authoritarian tendencies that they have adopted.

The United States of Socialism is an informative, provocative, and thrilling exposé not merely of the ideas, but also the tactics of the socialist left. In making the moral case for entrepreneurs and the free market, the author portrays President Trump as the exemplar of capitalism and also the most effective political leader of the battle against socialism. He shows how we can help Trump defeat the socialist menace.

Probably my favorite book so far on audible.

I don't say my headline lightly. My library is full of heavy hitters, Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Jordan Peterson, Stephen Harper, Thomas Sowell and on and on.

Dinesh's performance on this is very reminiscent on Fred Roger's diversity on his show, in that it felt like he was talking to you personally and directly.

hmHe succinctly describes how our society is being pulled out from under us and how our values are being subverted.

This is a must read for anyone who wonders why everything is so messed up and why it is urgent...absolutely urgent for us to stand up for our morals and values.

More of the same

I was expecting a rational dissection of modern socialism. Instead it's just more anti Democrat low level false comparitive fallacy analysis and name calling common to any free opinion podcast. just more rhetoric. waste of my time and money. very disappointed.

Dinesh does it again!

Dinesh, not only being one of the most cool-headed political orators of our time, is a tour-de-force. He takes the political circus we see and hear and extracts the behaviors and motives, expertly illuminating what lies behind the talking points, character assassination and identity politics narrative. He also gives a clear path forward to reclaiming our nation from the grips of socialism masking as democratic socialism and “equality.” An excellent book and equally excellent presentation by Dinesh. I look forward to the next one!

Let your conscience be your guide

A few points to consider.
I couldn’t agree more on Dinesh’s assessment of Comey!
You can’t have a traitor in the camp in one ofthe most vaulted positions of American government Comey betrayed Trump like Hoover did with JFK.
That and a toothless Jeff Sessions who is meant to keep the presidency on the right path not get him in further jeopardy.
The last is John Bolton what a despicable man a Republican with a blue hat.
Coming from Canada we are forced with Trudeau Doughnuts the Cockwomble and his Machiavellian fiefdom.
The core underneath him his similar to the Deep State.

What I cannot fathom is how the evil little gnome George Soros is left to continue in his attempts to undermine the stability of America!

It is them the Globalists against us the Republican Capital Nationalists.

Two things have shaped us the LBJ Civil Rights Bill of 1964.
Another vile cretin!
The real Civil Rights champion was Eisenhower!
Islamist belief is another thing dogging our progress.
This Jihadist movement that is being used by the left with the likes of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib must be stopped.

Moving forward here are two for the 2024 ticket Matt Gaetz for President and Ayaan Hirsi Ali VP.

Dinesh nails it again

It is beyond reason that so many people are so enamoured with the Democrat party and their hate for for everyone and everything who don’t follow their ideology

Informative

I wish more people would listen to this.
Instead of being offended by "MAGA" Start loving the truth until it hurts.

Therein lies true greatness.

Dinesh, a true patriotic Smerican

This book was such a great read. I commend Dinesh on his thoughtful, intelligent analysis of America’s two political parties and their ideology. I highly recommend all university students read the book just don’t let a Marxist political professor know you have read it. Cheers
