Quote of the day

“…in the negative part of Professor [Freidrich] Hayek’s thesis [in The Road to Serfdom] there is a great deal of truth. It cannot be said too often — at any rate, it is not being said nearly often enough — that collectivism is not inherently democratic, but, on the contrary, gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisitors never dreamt of.” — George Orwell

  1. If you haven’t read Hayek’s Road to Serfdom, I highly recommend it.
    Hayek (along with Mises, Menger, and Rothbard) is the great economic mind of the last hundred-plus years. He;s the anti-thesis of Keynes, whose Marx-lite ideas are what form the basis for big government expansion (from both sides) today.
