    Beacon Audiobooks Releases “Why Political Democracy Must Go” By Author John Reed

    “Why Political Democracy Must Go” is an insightful analysis of the origins of the socialist movement in the United States, written by famed journalist John Reed, one of the most distinguished American writers on the subject. Although one of socialism’s fiercest proponents, Reed exposes the myth of “democratic socialism” by providing an overview of the development of socialist thought in America. His devastating critique of political democracy argues that socialism cannot be achieved through democratic means.

    Originally published in 1919 in serial form, “Why Political Democracy Must Go”provides critical historical insight on the evolution of socialist thought in the United States. Today, when there is renewed interest in socialism on the American political scene, this notable series of essays reveals the underpinnings of socialist thought. Reed’s analysis will be of interest to those on all sides of the political spectrum. 

    Born in Portland, Oregon, on October 22, 1887, Harvard educated John Reed was considered one of the most remarkable journalists of his generation. He became famous for his firsthand accounts of the Mexican Revolution, where he rode alongside Pancho Villa, and for his acclaimed account of the Russian Revolution, “Ten Days That Shook the World.” Reed was also a political activist and a founding member of the Communist Labor Party of America. He died in Russia on October 17, 1920, and is one of only three Americans buried in the Kremlin Wall.

    Why Political Democracy Must Go: The Origins of Socialism in the United States”is edited, with an introduction by Dr. A.K. Brackob, a noted historian, and editor of John Reed’s collection of writings, “Romania During World War I: Observations of an American Journalist (2018).”
