Worthwhile listening…

If you haven’t done so already, and you have any interest in the tension between the state, the law, the economy and civil society – or to turn it on it’s head, you want to know why we are a society in decline and ideologically shackled to a discredited set of institutions – you should listen to this year’s BBC Reith Lectures by Niall Ferguson here.

For the BBC, this is post-watershed stuff. Talk of the state being too big, lawyers being too powerful, of capitalism being stifled and stymied by government and politics. Evidenced case studies proving socialist shibboleths to be not just false but malevolent in their outcomes.

Listen to it.
