HISTORY AND DANGER OF SOCIALISM: RETURN TO TRIBALISM
My task here is to present something as a brief historical recapitulation and reminder of the project of socialism as well as the main ideas that are standing in background of this, for a great number of people, very attractive ideology. On an example from the work of Murray Rothbard but within another context and with the help of theoretical apparatus built in philosophy of Immanuel Kant, this article is rendering thesis that there are no good ideas that are not functioning in practice due to the valid definition of “good idea” which says that something like that is not possible. At the end of the article, I will hopely show why there are no good ideas that are not working thanks to socialism, and why socialism is in an essential way premodern theory.
