Yuri Maltsev, a victim of Soviet totalitarianism in his youth, explains how and why westerners still don’t understand what socialism really means. He recounts his many trips to Cuba, and demolishes the myths surrounding that country’s vaunted “healthcare” and “education” systems. He explains how socialism actually produces a superclass of elites and a form of socio-economic apartheid, rather than egalitarian nirvana. And he reminds us that the romantic vision held by western elites is best defeated by those who have lived through the ravages of collectivism firsthand.
