Is that “Real” Socialism? It’s Your Dime Interview With José Niño
José Niño was born in Venezuela and his family has experienced the impacts of socialism first hand. But was it “real socialism?”
On this episode of It’s Your Dime, José and host Mike Maharrey talk about it.
José had the good fortune of leaving Venezuela before it descended into chaos. After reading the tea leaves and realizing that the country was heading down the path of political turmoil, José’s parents brought his family to the US in search of better opportunities.
José is a long-time political activist and worked as a lobbyist battling against gun control. He’s the author of two books, How Socialism Destroyed Venezuela and The 10 Myths of Gun Control. He has also written for several websites, including the Mises Institute, FEE and Ammo.com.
