The NEW Road to Serfdom, reviewed

Two Roads Diverged A review of Daniel Hannon's latest in the American Spectator and by my husband.

For those of you who need to be reminded of the awesomeness that is Dan....
It takes a great amount of gumption to title your first book published in the U.S. after an undisputed classic by an icon of liberty, but Daniel Hannan, MEP, is not short in the gumptive department. This is, after all, the man who stood up in the European Parliament before then British prime minister Gordon Brown, and in words of liquid gold told him exactly what the British public thought of him. That intervention struck a global nerve with people dissatisfied with their leaders, and the speech was watched on YouTube by 2 million people within a few days. Now, Mr. Hannan has written a letter of warning to America called -- channeling F. A. Hayek's classic -- The New Road to Serfdom. It deserves to be read by 2 million people.
Read the whole thing AND I never, never, ever get tired of watching this speech. Daniel, you are fantastic!
