Overview

Author and attorney Bart DePalma explains how American socialism evolved after the collapse of the Soviet Union from classical state ownership of the means of production into a new asymmetric form - using progressive tools to achieve socialist ends, while misrepresenting the result as pragmatic "reforms of capitalism."

This evolution of socialism had its roots in German zwangswirtshaft or "war socialism" and French Marxist philosopher Andre Gorz' revolutionary reforms meant to bring about a de facto socialism where the privately owned economy was reduced to the status of civil servants.

Never Allow A Crisis To Go To Waste describes how President Barack Obama's administration put the full evolution of socialist theory into practice, from the classical socialism of his nationalization of Chrysler and General Motors to the new asymmetric approach of his "clean energy economy" and "Obamacare."

The book is written for a general audience and well supported with several hundred sources. The point of view is from a libertarian conservative perspective.
