Mussolini On Freedom

In F.A. Hayek's The Road to Serfdom:
We were the first to assert that the more complicated the forms assumed by civilization, the more restricted the freedom of the individual must become.
Benito Mussolini, Grand Fascist Council Report, 1929, quoted in E. B. Ashton, The Fascist: His State and His Mind (New York: William Morrow and Co., 1937), p. 63, note 5.
