A book of essays chronicaling the emergence of a the Western World's on-ramp merge back on to the Road to Serfdom.... back on the road to a resurgent state and statism.

“Government departments are arranged hierarchically; those at the top are used to issuing orders and expect them to be carried out by their subordinates right down the line. Minow assumed that a cultural institution like television has a similar hierarchical structure, as if television executives could requisition more creative programming the way a bureaucrat orders new pencils or department stationery.” 1 likes
