Paul Harvey's brilliant analysis of how free societies come and go - FROM FREEDOM TO CHAINS.
In 1964, Paul Harvey wrote "If I Were the Devil."
Harvey wrote "If I Were the Devil," the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci
(1891--1937) explained the steps necessary for radicals to transform a
nation without firing a shot:
[T]hey must enter into every civil,
cultural and political activity in every nation, patiently leavening
them all as thoroughly as yeast leavens bread. . . .
[This] would require a 'long march through the institutions' — the
arts, cinema, theater, schools, colleges, seminaries, newspapers,
magazines, and the new electronic medium [of the time], radio."
The following is the text from an audio version of Paul Harvey's "If
I were the Devil." you can see that Gramsci was on target and his
radical heirs were successful:
In his book "Capitalism and Freedom" (1962) Milton Friedman (1912-2006)
advocated minimizing the role of government in a free market as a means
of creating political and social freedom.
