On the vital extent of societal development and the flaws of laissez-faire theories

Standard

“ We may have made tremendous advances economically, scientifically and technologically, but without matching psychological and social progress, those advances have only led us to where we are today – heading toward an environmental, political and social disaster ”

“ Unsurprisingly, it turns out that people do want government to deal with their problems – especially when it comes to issues of health, poverty, old age, disability and education. It is government intervention there that can give people faith in democracy (…) …just because an individual brings value to society, it doesn’t mean they should become a slave to it ”
