The Road To Serfdom

The Reader’s Digest condensed version of
The Road to Serfdom - complete download as pdf

To many who have watched the transition from socialism to

fascism at close quarters the connection between the two systems

has become increasingly obvious, but in the democracies the

majority of people still believe that socialism and freedom can be

combined. They do not realize that democratic socialism, the

great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable,

but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the

very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What

has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that

man has tried to make it his heaven.’
