Friedrich August von Hayek wanted to create a country that is worth dying for. He wrote The Road to Serfdom and in doing so had greatly influenced several government leaders with one of them being Ronald Reagan. Hayek’s Classical Liberal and laissez-faire ideology is put brilliantly in this book. He writes perfectly how socialism and a collectivist governments will only lead to tyranny.

I believe this world would be a better place if more politicians read his work and actually took it to heart. From reading this now, I know his writing had inadvertently influenced my own personal ideology by other great literature by individualist that directly looked up to Friedrich von Hayek’s philosophy.
