Obama's father and his view of 'Problems Facing Our Socialism

Dinesh D'Souza, the new president of The King's College (alma mater of Blaze writer Jon Seidl), has a provocative article in Forbes entitled simply, "How Obama Thinks." D'Souza is overflowing with insight and questions. To understand Obama's mind, we are encouraged to look to the thinking of his father who once wrote an "important article" called "Problems Facing Our Socialism." The anticolonial thinking of Barack Obama, Sr. is all there.  So too his socialist ambitions.

The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed."

D'Souza then makes the observation that we should all ponder:

Remarkably, President Obama, who knows his father's history very well, has never mentioned his father's article. Even more remarkably, there has been virtually no reporting on a document that seems directly relevant to what the junior Obama is doing in the White House.

I'm confident that D'Souza's forthcoming book, The Roots of Obama's Rage, will explore that relevance.
