How Long Has the Socialist Movement Been Going On?

The other day I came across a book buried in my library for years, H. G. Wells' The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution, published in 1928. Considering that I’ve been writing about the conspiracy for world government for decades, I wondered “how long has this been going on?” Of course, that’s the title of one of George and Ira Gershwin’s immortal popular songs, written in 1927 for a Broadway musical called Smarty. And wouldn’t you know that it is the smarty insiders who have been promoting this world revolution since the late 19th century. (And some conspiracy historians say much longer.)

The fact is that I am tired of writing about socialist utopians taking over America when the American people should have been smart enough long ago to reject the socialists and their insider promoters. How long is it going to keep going on? How long will it take for the world’s greatest capitalist nation to learn that socialism doesn’t work?
