Are we, in the USA, really sure we want to move toward Socialism? Do we really understand what it means? The Joys of Socialism chronicles one family’s adventure into European Socialism. It is by no means meant to be an exhaustive study on the differences between socialism and free market capitalism. It does, however, highlight some major differences. This book is intentional in its purpose; to make the reader think about such issues as health care, education, religion, taxes (Is there such thing as a free lunch?), and basic freedoms. The differences are enormous. You will have to read it to believe it!
