Availability: Ready to download

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 zwa 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.

A healthy, palatable understanding of events only happens when viewed against the history at the time of the events taking place; in other words, one might believed all of those revolutionaries from colonial America maybe overreacted IF he wasn’t aware of the events, people, and philosophies that preceded the American Revolution. Politics should be treated no differently, especially when dealing with the written word, a format that allows an author to take as much time – going to whatever lengths absolutely necessary – to delineate issues clearly for the reader, to substantiate valid points worthy of review, and to persuade the audience that one particular position on such volatile matters may be better than another. After all, isn’t that precisely what ideologues who subscribe to Obama’s driving theme – never allowing a crisis to go to waste – have bought into? Certainly, if you’re driving more “change” than you are “hope”, then you must act whether your constituents want you to act or not. You (citizen) use too much energy, so we (government) are going to limit it; you’re not demanding cap and trade legislation, but they are. You (citizen) listen to the wrong opinions, so we (government) are going to demand less of it for “fairness”; you’re not saying talk radio is unfair, but they are. You (citizen) cannot afford to buy your first home, so we (government) are going to provide you with one; you aren’t demanding to pay for your neighbor’s mortgage, but they’ll make you pay for it. But haven’t they “properly” measured their actions against the immediate history of their time when reaching their decisions? Methinks that’s what they would have you believe, and that’s what author Bart DePalma demonstrates to terrific effect in NEVER ALLOW A CRISIS TO GO TO WASTE. Obama and his supporters have created crisis after crisis. Then, they go on the offensive to claim that only the intervention of government into the private lives of its citizens can provide a proper legislative answer, only Uncle Sam can decide not only what’s best but also what’s fair for all. What they’ve been unable to enact into law, they’ve simply incorporated into already enforceable statutes of the Executive Branch and other enforcement venues; and DePalma highlights the treacherous legal (and illegal) practices as they’ve occurred over the first three years of Obama’s presidency. He reveal s how the politicos – employing these scare tactics – continue to savage personal freedoms, but, at all times, he ties these activities directly to related events or ideology so that the reader better understands the arguments and outcomes. To be fair, DePalma’s book isn’t a hatchet Republican job, though I’ve no doubt it may be branded as such. He equally attacks George W. Bush’s “big government Conservatism” for starting some of these crises, as clearly spending has been out-of-control for, arguably, that last two decades and/or three-to-four administrations. He underscores problems resulting from the application of political ideologies on both sides of the aisle – hence the need to begin with the famous Rahm Emanuel quote of the book’s title. Government isn’t necessarily the problem here, but the flawed application of “big government” thinking is, and NEVER ALLOW A CRISIS deserves to read by folks of any political stripe. It’s grounded with history, reality, and good old-fashioned common sense. It’s an indictment of socialism – in whatever form it’s called – and not an indictment of any political party, despite what you may think in appearances. A minor quibble: yes, it’s a small point, but I think it deserves mention as it happens routinely throughout the book, and that’s the spelling of Barack/Barrack’s name. As one could guess, Barack’s name appears hundreds of times in the book, and, sometimes within the same paragraph, it’s spelled with one R and two R’s. Most likely, this is little more than a proofing error, but it happens so consistently that I’m wondering if it wasn’t electronically proofed (spell-checked) and somehow both variations of spelling were erroneously entered. Like I said, it’s a minor beef, but it’s one that should be corrected if a second edition is forthcoming. In the interests of fairness, I’m pleased to share that Mr. DePalma and B Squared Press provided me with a copy of the book for the purposes of this review.

    Mr. DePalma does a great job in explaining and revealing how Obama has always been a marxist socialist. Obama is acting on his master plan and four more years will be very devasting to our country. I commend Bart on his research efforts and his approach on revealing and explaining socialism in great detail. I highly recommend this read, you wil not be disappointed. -Ron Martin, author, Prepare for the worst and pray for the Best: A Layman's guide to a nation gone bad Mr. DePalma does a great job in explaining and revealing how Obama has always been a marxist socialist.
