Quote from Ayn Rand,

Rand, Ayn - The goal of the “liberals”—as it emerges from the record of the past decades—was to smuggle the country into welfare statism by
means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time. Never permitting their direction to be summed
up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus, statism was to come, not by vote or by
violence, but by slow rot—by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli. (The goal of the “conservative”
was only to retard that process.)
