Notes to the Alternative Manifesto

The challenge to statism and its halfway house  the mixed economy has to go to the root which is philosophical.Unless the core beliefs that underpin statism and mixed economy are challenged head on people will always choose  statism and its application of welfarism and redistributive taxation based as it is on the fundamental religious principles of altruism. It is those principles that need to be challenged as even though they lead to economic disaster people will opt for them in the belief that morality trumps all.This is the task for those who wish to place capitalism as the heart of a  moral system of enlightened rational self interest.
