Why I Believe in Socialism

  • Corliss Lamont
Keywords: Socialism, Fascism, Marxism, Philosophy

Abstract

I became a convinced believer in socialism as the best way out for America and the world almost twenty years ago, about 1931 or 1932. Since that time the rise of fascism, the undoubted economic success of socialism in the Soviet Union, the coming of the Second World War, the defeat of international fascism and the post-war developments of 1945-49 in America, Europe, and Asia have all deepened and strengthened my socialist convictions.
