The Deadly Isms Episode 1: Up From Totalitarianism

Watch the first of Matt Kibbe's new series episode FREE now! Contrary to popular belief, the political spectrum doesn't go from left to right; it goes from top to bottom. At the bottom are all the authoritarian forms of government, including fascism, socialism, and communism. As we move upward, we approach liberty, voluntary cooperation, and community action.

Matt Kibbe: Socialism Kills

Matt Kibbe explains that socialism may be the hot new thing for progressives, but it is not joking matter. Socialism kills, and history is the proof. Published on Mar 10, 2016


Socialism Kills: Cambodia's Deadly Experiment

Ideas have consequences. In the 1970s, a group of students tried to put Marx's ideas into practice in Cambodia. They were called the Khmer Rouge.

In trying to do away with capitalism and return to an agrarian society, they moved people out of the cities and into the fields, although they had no idea how to farm. Published on Aug 2, 2016


Socialism 101 with Matt Kibbe

What is the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist?

Big-government types are constantly rebranding themselves.

A “socialist” is someone who wants to see the elimination of the monetary economy, the elimination of prices, and the elimination of private property.

A better name for Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and the radical left is “utopian statists.”

Matt Kibbe Socialist Hellhole: Venezuela

Progressives like Jimmy Carter praised Hugo Chavez for creating a socialist utopia in Venezuela. Today, we are seeing the fruits of those efforts. The country is falling a part as people can't even get toilet paper or diapers for their children. Ideas have consequences, and the Venezuelan people are now experiencing the horrific reality of socialism in practice. Published on May 22, 2016


Socialism kills: The zombie apocalypse is real

-- “The Walking Dead” is a compelling show because it shows how people behave in desperate situations.

-- Unfortunately, it's not all fiction. In Mao Zedong's brutal socialist regime, people were so desperate that they ended up resorting to cannibalism.

-- Mao even used this horrific practice to control the population. In the real world, this is what the zombie apocalypse looks like. Published on Sep 13, 2016


Socialism kills: gun grab in Nicolas Maduro's Venezuela

In Venezuela, both Hugo Chavez and his successor, Nicolas Maduro, have enforced strict gun control to prevent the masses from defending themselves against the government. Published on Aug 23, 2016


Are Socialism and Fascism the Same Thing?

-Political theorists tend to view politics on a linear scale with socialism and fascism on the complete opposite side of each other.

-But what if socialism and fascism are really born out of the same desire for authoritarian control over every aspect of a citizen’s life?

-CR’s Matt Kibbe asks this question and illustrates what a real political spectrum should look like. Published on Apr 24, 2016


Essential Liberty with Matt Kibbe: Why Bernie Sanders' Socialism Won't Work

Bernie Sanders want to give you a lot of free sh*t by raising your taxes. The price tag of his proposals is $18 trillion.

There are not enough millionaires in America to fund Bernie Sanders’ proposals, even if you confiscated 100% of their wealth. You’d only get to $600 billion.

If we can’t use taxes to pay for it, the Congress will have to borrow more money.

Borrowing more money puts pressure on the dollar, which ends up hurting the poor people Sanders wants to help. Published on Feb 8, 2016


Che It Ain't So | Kibbe on Liberty

You’ve seen Che Guevara's face on t-shirts and on college campuses. But don't be fooled. Che Guevara was a stone cold killer. #SocialismKills.  Published on Oct 9, 2017


Socialism Kills: Forced Labor in Venezuela

Published on Aug 4, 2016

In Venezuela, citizens are now being drafted to work in the fields, in an effort to increase food production. Many of these people have never seen a farm before, yet they've basically become slaves of the socialist government.

This is exactly what happened in Cambodia, in China, and in other countries where socialism destroyed the market's ability to produce enough food to feed the population.


Socialism Kills: No brownies in Venezuela

Why are Venezuelans troops storming bakeries? Because, horror of horrors, they have been baking brownies.

- The government wants bakers to make bread, but price controls make it impossible to turn a profit, so they make brownies instead.

- When bakers have to go around the law just to stay in business and feed their customers, you know something is badly wrong. Socialism kills. Published on Mar 29, 2017


Socialism Kills: Venezuela Pt. 3

Published on Aug 2, 2016

People in Venezuela are starving. In desperation, political leaders have allowed a temporary opening of the borders so that residents can buy supplies in Colombia. The sad thing about all this is how predictable it was. This is always what happens under total government control. This is always what happens when socialism fails.



Socialism Kills More Babies Than War

Think the war in Syria is bad? It is, but socialist Venezuela is even worse, especially if you happen to be a helpless infant. Published on Nov 29, 2016


Socialism kills: Zimbabwe President Mugabe: “I am the Hitler of the time”

-- With all the attention on the collapse of socialist Venezuela, it's easy to forget about other countries where the same thing is happening.

-- In Zimbabwe, for example, the government redistributed farmlands and set price controls, resulting in a terrible shortage of food.

-- This was all part of the dream of President Robert Mugabe, who compares himself to Hitler. Like most socialist leaders, he really only cares about power. Published on Sep 17, 2016


Socialism Kills: Starvation and Panic in Venezuela

Published on Aug 8, 2016

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is closing the borders of his country, to prevent panicking citizens from fleeing. The reason they want to flee is because there's no food in Venezuela. The military has been put in charge of rationing it out to party loyalists and the politically connected.

This is how socialism always works. It comes down to a power struggle revolving around brute force. Meanwhile, the population starves. Socialism kills.


Socialism Kills: Kim Jong Un Assassinated Top Advisor

  • Crazy North Korean dictator Kim John Un just assassinated one of his top advisors for bad posture.
  • The news comes after years of other purges including killing a top defense minister with an anti aircraft gun.
  • There’s one lesson that every socialist country or experiment has taught the West: socialism kills. Published on Sep 10, 2016


Socialism Kills: Venezuela kidnaps freedom fighter

With his country on the verge of collapse, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is trying to crush the opposition, kidnapping attorney Yon Goicoechea. Goicoechea was the winner of the Cato Institute's 2008 Milton Friedman Prize and a celebrated defender of individual liberty. Published on Sep 2, 2016
