Temba Nolutshungu, Director of The Free Market Foundation, FMF, South Africa: Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi (1869-1948) referring to socialism and communism poignantly stated: “I look upon an increase of the power of the State with the greatest fear, because while apparently doing good by minimising exploitation, it does the greatest harm to mankind by destroying individuality, which lies at the root of all progress.” Ultimately the struggle is between the claims of ideology and the human instinct of individual liberty, which is the basis of a spontaneous, natural order. Socialism persists in attracting ideologues despite its abject failures because the benefits of individual liberty are not properly understood.
