Time to Exit!
As Dr. Thomas Sowell accurately notes in a review of F. A. Hayek's masterpiece, "The rule of law, on which freedom itself ultimately depends, is inherently incompatible with socialism. People who are free to do as they wish will not do as the economic planners wish. Differences in values and priories are enough to ensure that. These differences must be ironed out by propaganda or power, if socialism is to be socialism. Indoctrination must be part of the program, not because socialist want to be brainwashers, but because socialism requires brainwashing."
Without the rule of law, you no longer have a nation of virtue wtih freedom and liberty for all.
Unfortunately, the assessment Dr. Sowell arrived upon in review of Hayek's brilliance, is actually happening.
Rather than "cheering for your team" no matter the policy put forth, it seems our citizenry should acquaint themselves with the ability to engage in critical thinking. Presently, powerful ruling class elite and progressive politicians, with the cooperation of their partners in the mainstream media, are pushing their agenda, littered with propaganda and fake news, on the citizenry.
It is, as progressive Stuart Chase wrote in 1942, "The Road We Are Traveling."
The "real" stories, which discredit the propaganda pushed by the central planners, is labeled Fake News.
Fake News is a new weapon designed by the central planners to confuse the citizenry, who has made recent strides on deciphering truth from deception.
But until America firmly wakes up and wins this battle, and make no mistake it is just that, that road is "The Road To Serfdom."
