Equality and Democratic Control

  • Paul Auerbach


The long-term socialist strategy proposed here is explicit in having a trajectory in the direction of human development, equality and democratic control that is not easily deflected by the vagaries of the marketplace. It is thus in stark contrast to the disingenuous claims of free market liberals that, for instance, policies of privatisation of public services are mere responses to the demands of a spontaneous order. It is also at variance with the policy prescriptions of American-style liberals and social democrats, who, especially in recent years, at best offer an amelioration and mitigation of the worst effects of an increasingly competitive environment, and at worst pursue policies of accommodation to these realities that differ little from those of the free-marketers.
