This marvellous piece by Nick Cohen should provide a culture shock for those of us whose political sensibilities were formed in the 1970s. He says:
The managers of private and public bureaucracies justify their elevated status and salaries not only by attempting to run efficient organisations (a task that is often beyond the poor dears) but by monitoring and intimidating those beneath them.
And You Can’t Read This Book attacks “the power of the wealthy to silence their critics.”
His point is capitalists are often the enemies of freedom.
