Quotation of the Day…

in Hayek, Inequality, Reality Is Not Optional

…from page 61 of David Mamet’s 2011 book, The Secret Knowledge (original emphasis):

Hayek calls this utopian vision The Road to Serfdom.  And we see it in operation here, as we are in the process of choosing, as a society, between Liberty – the freedom from the State to pursue happiness, and a supposed but impossible Equality, which, as it could only be brought about by a State capable and empowered to function in all facets of life, means totalitarianism and eventual dictatorship.
