Words for the Weekend – 6-11-10

F.A. Hayek

“The power which a multiple millionaire, who may be my neighbor and perhaps my employer, has over me is very much less than that which the smallest ‘functionaire’ possesses who wields the coercive power of the state, and on whose desecration it depends whether and how I am allowed to live or to work.”

 – Frederich von Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
