This is a political flash: Originally published in 1944, Hayek's "Road to Serfdom" explained how a society moves from progressivism to totalitarianism, in his analysis of Nazi Germany. This is his book summed up in words and pictures. Those politicians who insist they have a plan never explain that this implies that you as a citizen must agree to their plan and cannot have one of your own, in short it means the end of freedom.

Pretty interesting

I think it's always a good idea to make things that have such a powerful message. Probably my only problem with this was that it didn't have much going on. I think the strongest point was the music, which really made it seem dramatic. What was also cool was how you really went out of your way to go into detail. I can see something like this doing well on a school project. It might have worked better if you adaptated it into a book.

You could have also let the viewer control when the next "page" was coming up. I have seen too many things to count about how dictators come in power. It's really something we should be familiar with. I think the main problem is that it will simply be impossible to create a Utopia, at least one in a very powerful country. There will always be conflicts.

it's always interesting to read about the happenings in germany in 1933, well at least even for us germans!
if we could change we would!
but we were forced to and most people were scared of the SS, SA and hitler! actually only 20% of the germans were nazis!
k it's over we're happy ^^
but unfortunately we got a new wave of neo nazis!

hilter and his morals were a big piece of crap
too many followed without thinking about what they're doing
i guess that's the main problem that many countries had
nowadays too!

think about it!

nice idea! :)

i'm not much of a fan of a comic slide show... it doesn't seem very entertaining.. the music makes me want to fall asleep literally.

Anenome responds:

This is a political movie, not designed to entertain per se, but to make a point, which appears to have been lost on you. It was once a book that I have updated for the digital age to give it a wider audience, thus the slide-show aspect. Finally, the music is the one thing that the reviewers have especially complimented me about, so your remark about it is mystifying, perhaps you just didn't agree with the point of the movie and are looking for a way to diss it. Whatever.

Always nice...

to see inanimate objects kill kids

Anenome responds:

I have no idea what you're talking about. This flash has nothing to do with the deaths of children in any way. Seems like your comment is but a lame attempt to keep people from viewing this flash. Not very original though.

not bad

a bit different style of flash, like it being in the form of a slideshow, but it was alright.
