Police State

I do not spend time watching MTV -- although I was young enough to be a member of the target demographic when it began. These two infomercials currently running on the cable channel are so thought-provoking, they may make me tune in again.

The critical question raised by these ads, however, was answered by F. A. Hayek almost sixty years ago. What leads to a police state? Central planning is the road to serfdom.
