You're Being Hoodwinked into Serfdom

Liberty fades away imperceptibly. Within a generation or two it will no longer be mentioned. Out of sight, out of mind.

One of the methods used by statists to destroy capitalism consists in establishing controls that tie a given industry hand and foot, making it unable to solve its problems, then declaring that freedom has failed and stronger controls are necessary. —Ayn Rand, 1975
