Piglet on Hayek and the Welfare State

It's amazing how much better our discourse would be if the major newspaper op-ed pages were turned over to Winnie-the-Pooh characters...

Piglet says:

Hayek and the Welfare State: This is such a pointless debate. Right-wingers always want to have it both ways. This is most obvious with respect to Hayek’s explicit support for universal health insurance. Hayek, says the reasonable right-winger, wasn’t making the obviously crazy argument that any kind of welfare policy will lead to serfdom. Proof, he supported universal health insurance. At the same time, that very same right-winger will cite Hayek in support of claiming that Obamacare IS the road to serfdom....

Physically impossible...
