  • (Free to Choose series, Part 10) "We in this country in the past half century have been moving away from a free society and toward an increasing degree of slavery. . . a slavery in the form of an increasing role of government in our economy, of an increasing extent to which we are the subject and the government the master . . . ." Milton Friedman visits offices around Washington, D. C., to show just how powerful this master is and how much more powerful it can become. "If we continue the trend, we shall lose not only our economic advantages but also our political freedom . . . . We shall end up as a collectivist totalitarian society."
