American Socialism-a Long Time Creeping

Brant, Irving
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p97
This article discusses the socialism in the U.S. The author says that he must add at once, however, that among his ideological comrades he also have his doubts about U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In basic strategy, Eisenhower displays the soundness one might expect in a five-star general. It is elemental that people cannot put socialism into effect without a vast array of people in government service, and people cannot keep them in service without paying them. On this subject Eisenhower is forthright even if he does not go far enough. He visualizes, some day, a cutting of the federal budget from $80 billion down to $30 billion a year. Socialism was first introduced in the U.S. with the invention of the Stakhanovite system in 1754.
