Professor rejects Marxism after traveling the globe: ‘Socialism doesn’t work’

At least one professor in America does not feel the Bern.

University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action.

After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment.
“I gradually became disenchanted with Marxism by visiting many of the countries that had tried to shape their societies to conform to its doctrines. I was disillusioned by the realities I saw in … socialist countries – the USSR, Eastern Europe, China, Cuba, etc,” Stauder told The College Fix via email.

“I came to recognize that socialism doesn’t work, and that its ‘revolutionary’ imposition inevitably leads to cruelty, injustice and the loss of freedom,” the professor continued.


  1. I hope at least, some people see this to be a positive for electing Bernie Sanders. If yall are from the South, that means the eventual collapse of the US incorporated, est Feb 21, 1871. Under the guise of reconstruction, we have been the yankee economic whipping boy too long for something not to break.
    Be honest as to 'who' controls this country, stop living the lie.

    1. We tried it once, maybe we'll make it this time.

  2. Oh heck, I could have told the nutty professor that Marxism and socialist societies don't work sitting here in my comfy capitalist derived executive chair...
