Summary
  • Argues that the current promotion of unchecked capitalism and materialism is fundamentally flawed, and that the answer is social democracy, in which government has an increased role without threatening personal liberties
  • In "Ill Fares The Land," Tony Judt, one of our leading historians and thinkers, reveals how we have arrived at our present dangerously confused moment and offers the language we need to address our common needs, rejecting the nihilistic individualism of the far right and the debunked socialism of the past. To find a way forward, Judt argues that we must look to our not so distant past and to social democracy in action: to re-enshrining fairness over mere efficiency
