I am on holidays and I hope nothing major will happen in the news. It is time to relax.
A good society demands democracy, liberty and equality. A society where one person is free is a dictatorship. The rest of the population are only slaves. A society where only a minority are free is an elitist society where most of the people are slaves. Equality demands we are all free, it demands democracy. A society where a party or where money dominates isn’t really free or equal. After WW2 in western societies conservatives and liberal social democrat sought to build a just free and equal society. This model broke down in the 1970s.
Do we live in free and equal societies today? How do we achieve a better society? What model of the economy and society do we want?
