The Road is a terrific book. Over sixty years after initial publication it is a prescient road map to our eventual life under socialist tyranny. My ten year old copy is dog-eared, highlighted and falling apart. I think a new Amazon soft copy is less than $8.
As I read The Road to Serfdom, I am continually amazed at how well Hayek understood the nature of the statist beast.

There is no justification for the widespread belief that, so long as power is conferred by democratic procedure, it cannot be arbitrary; it is not the source of power which prevents it from being arbitrary; to be free from dictatorial qualities, the power must also be limited.
I've read books that had less to say than the paragraph above...

(The MSM will trumpet every hard luck housing story they can find to undermine Santelli.)
