Food for the brain [ our society yesterday and now ]

Published:

This book was written in 1935. Seems like it could have been written today by reading the text.

an excerpt.

Thus the State "turns every contingency into a resource" for accumulating power in itself, always at the expense of social power; and with this it develops a habit of acquiescence in the people. New generations appear, each temperamentally adjusted – or as I believe our American glossary now has it, "conditioned" – to new increments of State power, and they tend to take the process of continuous accumulation as quite in order. All the State's institutional voices unite in confirming this tendency; they unite in exhibiting the progressive conversion of social power into State power as something not only quite in order, but even as wholesome and necessary for the public good.

Looks like you can download the complete book. I do not know if there is a charge for it.
