Rose Wilder Lane--daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder--considered herself a Communist in 1920. She travelled to Russia to see the dream of mankind's liberation from economic bondage come true, but instead found exploitation, regimentation, and degradation of the people under an already grinding tyranny. This is her response to what she found, and her affirmation of the American experiment.

Lane would go on to launch the modern Libertarian movement in America, along with Ayn Rand and Isabel Patterson.
