This year marks the 20th anniversary of the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. But the lessons to be learned from socialism-in-practice in the last century have continuing relevance for the political and economic problems of our own time, both in America and around the world. If we do not heed those lessons, we may continue going down a new road to serfdom with a loss of both freedom and prosperity along the way.
Tune in for our special webinar with Richard Ebeling Wednesday Evening 8-9PM EST.
Wednesday, May 11, 8PM-9PM Eastern/Standard Time
