Great postNo conundrum here,
comes right back to the same point,
ours is a blend of socialism and captialism.
The dangers that Hayek warns of
are those that lay at the end of
a purely Socialist road.
Just as the dangers of pure Captialism
are monopolies and oligarchies.
To a very small minority,
any whiff of Socialism raises the red flags,
it's a pavlovian response that blinds,
and denies the socialism we participate in everyday.
your demons may yet be expunged.
Wish I would have thought of that.
