    The Road to Serfdom - F. A. Hayek


    Think about this the next time you listen to your favorite AM radio bloviator or 24 hour "news" network. Or when you find yourself creating a topic by copying and pasting nothing more than a link to a partisan web site article that has already been discussed several times in the same day.

    "Loudly and frequently".

    "[T]he support of all the docile and gullible".

    "prepared to accept a ready-made system of values"

    Don't be a piss drinker.

    Yet the left still claims that there is nothing to be learned form history, they can always do it better, this time.

    History is bound to repeat itself when people fail to learn, and choose to ignore, the lessons of history.

    This phenomenon is not exclusive to the left. It's true the left has had totalitarian tendencies since FDR, but it is precisely because I have been seeing identical tendencies developing on the right for over a decade that I have become very concerned.

    Gullible. A ready-made system of values drummed into their ears sufficiently frequently and loudly. Lower moral and intellectual standards. No strong convictions of their own.

    It's all there in the UnConservative movement today.

    But never mind all that. Let's talk about Obama's 54 Christmas trees and vacations and his birth certificate!

    Yes, let's focus on the goals and values of the party out of power because that's really fucking important

    You think the GOP is out of power? :lol:

    And this has been going on since the Bush Administration. Patriot Act, Department of Homeland Security, waterboarding, warrantless wiretaps. These are some serious totalitarian tendencies, and the dipshits handed the baton to Obama.

    Wakey wakey.

    A long time ago, I said that if Dante were still handing our seat assignments in the Inferno Dubya would be down in the 9th Circle with the other traitors, but beneath Satan's ass
