Christine Smith Makes the Case for Liberty

Some inspiration from former Libertarian Party presidential candidate Christine Smith‘s arcticle “The Road Waiting to Be Taken” …

Reading Friedrich A. Hayek’s Road to Serfdom, one is amazed that a book published 64 years ago could paint such an accurate picture of where the United States is headed today. Hayek’s warning of the dangers of centralized planning and his cautioning that well-intentioned planning can degrade into tyranny describes the road the United States embarked upon several decades ago and has traveled ever since. We now live in a nation where many people give only lip service to the free market and its fruits of economic and personal freedom. As long as they can get a fast-food meal down the street, watch a movie, and shop at the department store, many Americans feel they have all they need. They call that “liberty.”
