Quote of the day–F.A. Hayek

Now, it is somewhat difficult to think of Germany and Italy, or of Russia, not as different worlds but as products of a development of thought in which we have shared; it is, at least so far as our enemies are concerned, easier and more comforting to think that they are entirely different from us and that what happened there cannot happen here.  Yet the history of those countries in the years before the rise of the totalitarian system showed few features with which we are not familiar.
