F.A. Hayek on Gates, Fauci, and All Central Planners Like Them

One striking characteristic of the two most important contributors to the creation of Soviet America created by the hysterical panic over the latest cold virus — Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci — is their nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude toward the tens of millions of Americans whose jobs and paychecks have been eliminated, their businesses ruined and gone forever, their savings decimated, and their imprisonment under mass house arrest, watched over by snotty, arrogant, local cops who suffer disproportionately from little-man syndrome.

Gates, Fauci, the “public health establishment,” and the barking chorus professional liars in the “media” went berserk when President Trump stated the obvious — that life is full of tradeoffs, and that an economic depression may well cause more death and destruction of life than any cold virus can. We don’t want “the cure to be worse than the disease,” he said.

The great Nobel prize-winning Austrian School of Economics economist F.A. Hayek put his finger on the government-planning mentality of people like Gates and Fauci in his 1944 book,The Road to Serfdom, one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. On page 55 Hayek wrote:
The movement for planning owes its present strength largely to the fact that” it is comprised of “almost all the single-minded idealists, all the men and women who have devoted their lives to a single task. The hopes they place in planning, however, are the result not of a comprehensive view of society but rather of a very limited view and often the result of a great exaggeration of the importance of the ends they place foremost . . . . ” This makes “the very men who are most anxious to plan society the most dangerous if they are allowed to do so — and the most intolerant of the planning of others. From the saintly and single-minded idealist to the fanatic is often but a step.
People like Gates and Fauci need to be kept as far away from power as possible, in other words.
