A quick google of “Obama” and “fatal conceit” harvests over 16,000 links. The interpretation of Barack Obama and his government as an instantiation of what Friedrich Hayek examined in his classic book The Fatal Conceit has become one of the dominant narratives of today. In May John Stossel wrote a widely circulated piece on the topic. This week, Thomas Sowell weighs in. So does Sheldon Richman. And also Ralph Reiland. I’m guessing we’ll be hearing more about this over the next month and year.
