Brian Doherty puzzles me:
Hayek is best known for his 1944 book, “The Road to Serfdom,” which demonstrated to those who believed in a benign socialism that government economic control tends inexorably toward political tyranny.
Really, Brian? You actually believe that Hayek “demonstrated” that welfare states lead “inexorably” to totalitarianism, like it’s some kind of empirical law? I mean, this does explain why all of Western Europe is now Stalinist, wait, no, what the hell?
