“In The Road to Serfdom, F.A. Hayek called cultural historian and philosopher Moeller van den Bruck ‘the patron saint of National Socialism.’ Hayek quoted him describing the fierce opposition of German youth to liberalism: ‘Liberalism is a philosophy of life from which German youth now turns with nausea, with wrath, with quite peculiar scorn, for there is none more foreign, more repugnant, more opposed to its philosophy. German youth today recognizes the liberal as the archenemy.’ Van den Bruck was referring to classical liberalism. Today’s youth are again in revolt against classical liberalism.” (05/13/24)
