Morally and philosophically I caminno myself in agreement with virtually the whole of it: An unimpeachable classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics, “The Road to Serfdom” has inspired and descargae politicians, scholars, and general readers for half a century.
Originally published in – when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin, and Albert Einstein subscribed lock, stock, and barrel to the socialist program – “The Road to Serfdom” was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production. Hayek, the collectivist idea of empowering government with increasing economic control would lead not to a utopia but to the horrors of Nazi Germany and Servidumbree Italy.

Hayek, Friedrich – Los Fundamentos de La Libertad
Like many young, intelligent, concerned people, Hayek started his adult life as a democratic socialist, the trendy thing for young people then and now. But World War I caused him to questions the assumptions he had made about the social order. In conversations with his cousin Ludwig Wittgenstein, he developed a strong desire to discover ways that humanity might avoid the tragedy of the War in future.
He studied with numerous academic luminaries in Vienna after the war including the renowned economist and powerful anti-socialist Ludwig von Mises.
Then, inhe wrote a book that earned him an invitation to join the London School of Economics where he famously debated the demand-side guru, John Maynard Keynes. Keynes won these debates in the short run and held sway over mid-century world economic policy, but lost to history with the supply-side revolution of Freedman, Reagan and Thatcher who all acknowledged their great debt hayei Fredrick Hayek.
The idea that we can willfully design a perfect, conflict free society is seductive and desirable to young minds who have just left the security of the family, or not. But without the Church to teach them otherwise, men began to believe they could perfect themselves.
Bismarck and Woodrow Wilson made the first political attempts at a Great Society with seeming benevolence. Mussolini, Hitler, Tojo, Stalin and Mao followed their example with significantly less universally humane intent. All of these politicians believed they could organize the world into a scientifically created Eden sans deity through extensive economic planning by a central governing authority vested in academic experts.
This authority would have the power to distribute goods and services in such a way seridumbre people would be freed from want and from mundane economic decisions. They could live their lives in pursuit of those things much loftier than material wealth.
They could fill their days with art and science descargat comradery and love. Organization and planning would liberate humanity from strife, privation, drudgery and tedium. For nearly one hundred and fifty years socialist doctrine has imbued this dream-world into the heads of the young, the desperate, the hungry, the angry, the resentful and the lonely.
Social economic planning was the perfect religious message for generations of men who had lost the Religion of Divinity and were searching for a religion within themselves.
Many politicians believe this still today or cynically advocated such policies to accrue power from the gullible. So the Road to Serfdom is analysis of this intense human desire to organize the world around us through planning in order to achieve some always ill-defined optimum for all.
The book clearly demonstrates that the great flaw in this idea is that men can never get together and agree exactly what to plan for or what is optimal. The artist will want resources allocated to the National Endowment for the Arts; the scientist will insist that more be sent to the National Institutes for Health; the farmer will demand that subsidies for corn are the only way society can survive, parents and students will demand descargaf, and the poor will clamor for support.
This will inevitably lead to conflict as what each man lobbies for is not really an optimum for all but an optimum for himself.

The only way these conflicts can be resolved is through a strong central authority that servldumbre coerce the cooperation of all the members of society and assign priorities for the allocation of resources. As men will always resist coercion, the applied authority must become increasingly violent to the point of being life threatening in order to impose its central economic will.
As the process of organization and planning becomes ever more comprehensive, ultimate authority must eventually be concentrated in the hands of one person, a dictator.
That the complex system of interrelated activities, if it is to be consciously directed at all, caminno be directed by a single staff of experts, and that ultimate responsibility and power must rest in the hands of a commander-in-chief whose actions must not be fettered by democratic procedure All these systems insisted that you will relax and recreate as they tell you.
You will read the books they tell you to read. You will perform only the plays they tell you hayfk perform. You will live your life for their priorities. For a planned society to work, people eventually must surrender complete control of their lives, even their leisure, to hqyek planners for the sake of the whole. Collectivist sentiment arose in the 19th century as a backlash against unrestrained, Laissez-faire Capitalism.
Who would play Monopoly if there were servivumbre rules at all and theft and deceit were the norm; that is lawless Laissez-faire economic anarchy.
But why should we play either game with our economic lives? But Hayek shows the impossibility of this Third Way and points us to the only way. What Hayek advocates is servodumbre Capitalist system with clearly defined rules that apply to everyone, no exceptions, and enduring restraints and limits on the power of government. He argues for consistency and democracy where the playing field is level for srvidumbre and we are all free economic entities making our own economic decisions based on our own desires, our own resources and our serbidumbre conscience.
What he argues is Edmond Burke, years on in an effort to correct the horrific damage we have inflicted on ourselves with the hubris that we could actually perfect ourselves through planning without throwing away our very humanity.
Deception is the first form of violence perpetrated on the people by planners when they achieve power.
For such self-appointed experts, their plan is so important that the vox populi must be silenced first only by stealth, but surely force will soon follow. Their plan is just too important.
Life is and will be always a struggle toward freedom and dignity for each man and woman. That freedom and dignity can never be perfectly attained, but what of these we can manage only comes through personal economic empowerment. That empowerment comes when we throw off the yoke of powerful individuals and defiantly refuse the thralldom they offer in exchange for illusions of security and freedom from the mundane.
Millions of people had gladly descended down the wrong path and now had to claw their way back out of the Cave Plato had lead them into. Hayek showed them that way back.
Many people emerging from under the heel of that Evil Empire have attested to the enlightenment they received from the banned copies of the works of Hayek. There are a number of excellent reviews already provided here that I will not attempt to improve upon in terms of detail or summary. Following the birth of the Age of Trump, the virtual banishment of civil political discourse, and the possible dissolution of the European Union unfolding as we watch, this book is more important than ever.
Although the arguments are eminently logical and the elements are not hard to understand, the prose is often difficult and requires patience to tease them out. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 only because the book is not an easy read. It will reward the patient. In retrospect, this might have made the book easier to read the first time through, as it would have helped to see where the author was going before starting in on the rest of the book.
Some interesting excerpts from Chapter One quote remembering that this was written over 70 years ago! This is one of the best books I have ever read in my life. I feel that is has shaped my worldview. This is an extremely difficult book to read. Like the great philosophers; you must reread each passage to fully understand it. It is astonishing how permanent this book is to the current economy. Government encroachment, I suppose, is timeless.
People wanting benefits and power they don’t deserve will never end. That is why this book must be republished for centuries to expose individual responsibility and accountability in the highest regard. Facts don’t change, and likewise people will always try to get their something for nothing.
This book attempts to prevent that from happening since it destroys the system and the people it depends on. This book sheds light on The Fatal Conceit; that man is both more intelligent and moral than the market through freedom. Gana dinero con nosotros. Todos los derechos reservados.
