"You probably learned in school that FDR and the New Deal saved this nation, and that World War II ended the Great Depression. Wrong on all accounts. Roosevelt's disastrous policies, like Obama's today, did precisely the opposite. They prolonged the economic crisis, caused initially by the Federal Reserve. Find out the truth, about then and now."
"Published in 1935, Albert Jay Nock's masterpiece details the cancerous growth of American statism, culminating in the corporate welfare-warfare state of FDR.
