Hayek On Progressive (Collectivist) Ethics

“There is literally nothing which the consistent collectivist must not be prepared to do if it serves ‘the good of the whole,’ because the ‘good of the whole’ is to him the only criterion of what ought to be done.”

–F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

In other words, when it comes to the greater good, the end justifies the means.
