"The Road To Serfdom" explains the self-destructive results of collectivism; Socialists paving the way for the fascism that swept over Russia, Germany, and Italy. In Obama's '13 inaugural address, Obama said that "preserving individual freedom ultimately requires collective action"; this is in-your-face statism and it will also prove self-destructive. "The Road To Serfdom" details how the central planners transformed "economic freedom" by promising "larger economic output than the competitive system" and subsequently "freedom from necessity" (general welfare) by "redistribution of wealth". The condensed version of "The Road To Serfdom" can be read online; it is the version that was printed in The Readers Digest in 1945.
