In step 8, it isn’t the least educated, but those who think they are educated, after 5 years of binge drinking and studying what used to be high school material, who are the problem these days.

Sad to say it, but college these days is a process to replace common sense with stylish sophistry. If a person doesn’t know the difference between Plato and Descartes then it doesn’t matter if they did read a Mayo Angelo poem for a class once upon a time. The group that thinks they are smart thinks that they have all the answers—and they are all so simple and easy—and only if the stupid people on the other side were controlled, then there would finally be social justice. The fact that this group is ninety percent of the news media does not help matters.

Thank you for posting this. We see what he’s trying. What do we do to stop it? Many Dems are also beginning to see it and some they aren’t liking it.

In order to achieve their ends the planners must create power – power over men wielded by other men – of a magnitude never before known.

Their success will depend on the extent to which they achieve such power. Democracy is an obstacle to this suppression of freedom which the centralized direction of economic activity requires.

Hence arises the clash between planning and democracy. Many socialists have the tragic illusion that by depriving private individuals of the power they possess in an individualist system, and transferring this power to society, they thereby extinguish power. What they overlook is that by concentrating power so that it can be used in the service of a single plan, it is not merely transformed, but infinitely heightened.

The Road To Serfdom needs to be a stand alone post. It's important - especially now.

The Road to Serfdom is as frightening as anything I have ever read. Thanks for the ‘toon version.

To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Nobody saw more clearly than the great political thinker de Tocqueville that democracy stands in an irreconcilable conflict with socialism: ‘Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom,’ he said. ‘Democracy attaches all possible value to each man,’ he said in 1848, ‘while socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number.

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.’

Thanks for pinging...I believe Road To Serfdom must get into the hands of more people. An easy way to understand the road Hussein is taking us down.
