There are a lot of parallels between what was happening in Germany in 1933 when this article by the great Friedrich Hayek was written and what is happening in the United States today. Then in Germany as now in the United States the government had taken over control of major industries and had moved to limit executive pay. Compare the Nazi dislike of Department Stores and the Democrat’s dislike of Wal-Mart. As the article indicates, many of the people in Germany supported the Nazi’s without realizing what the Nazi’s were intent on doing. A few people were aware, such as the prominent scientists like Einstein who promptly left Germany. I think we have a similar situation in America today where people have listened to Obama (peace be upon him) say in his inaugural address that he intends to re-make America without giving any thought as to what that means.
