Hayek’s Road to Serfdom postulates that when government gets too much power (regardless of intention for good or ill), it is eventually taken over by the most ruthless.

True. In The Road to Serfdom, the chapter "How the Worst Get on Top" lays it out. Interesting that Hayek's book has hit #1 on Amazon since Glen Beck menationed it. It's a real eye-opener for those who have managed to live this far without reading it.

Should be mandatory reading in all school systems. I won't hold my breath on that one, though.
