One of the most inspiring individuals of the post-war free-market movement is Sir Antony Fisher. He was one of the most influential background figures in the global rise of libertarian think tanks after World War II. In 1945 after flying in the Royal Air Force during the war, Fisher read The Road to Serfdom by F. A. Hayek. He met Hayek in 1947 and was inclined to enter politics to defend individual liberty against creeping socialism, but Hayek proposed another idea. Instead of directly entering the political system, Hayek believed changing the climate of ideas would be the only way to make real change possible.
