Socialists are fond of claiming that they’re actually speaking for the worker without a voice.  However, Rick Kelo, a West Point graduate and Classic Liberal social thinker sees the matter differently.  To Kelo the actual issue at the heart of Socialism is who actually controls society.

“Socialism is always sold as altruism, but its not actually about helping anyone – it’s really about controlling them,” says Richard Kelo.

Kelo points out it necessarily must mean this because Socialism is the substitution of individual plans for government plans.  “Socialism deprives entrepreneurs and capitalists of the ability to decide how their resources will be employed,” Rick Kelo continues.  “In a Socialist economy small business owners are forced to unconditionally comply with the orders of State central planners.”
