About this Item

Gray sealed paper over boards, illustrated w/ world leader caricatures. 156 p. 22 cm. Distributed by The Committee for Constitutional Government Inc, New York. Chapter references. Index. The author purports that nationalized medicine, "The Welfare State" is the beginning of "The Police State". An educator and economist, author Melchior Palyi witnessed power politics in his native Hungary, before becoming an American citizen. In an internationally post World War II wary climate of emerging socialism, the publisher notes of nationalized medical services, "If implemented here, they ultimately would mean for America the blind confusion that is Europe, the tragic austerity that is England, and the Godless despair that is Russia". In his last chapter of 15, Palyi subtitles 2 sections as "Authoritarians Turning Red" and "Professions Losing Status". "References by chapters": p. 147-152. Very good. No dust jacket. Age-toning. Light cover surface blemishes. Special edition; 2nd printing 100K copies; 1st was 25K. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.Md0090006799

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
