This is how it happens
« on: October 18, 2005, 11:28:47 »
A pictorial summary of "The Road to Serfdom". I wish I had this when I was studying economics (although the text is quite fascinating too. Read it sometime.)

Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.
