Free Your Mind: A Beginner's Guide to Poltical Economy

TEACHING TO DESPISE FREEDOM from ANTIDOTE by Sauvik

Since our enemies, the socialists, emphasize the role of their State in 'education', I have always taken the position that the content of their textbooks must be exposed as dangerous for young minds. I am therefore happy to note that the great philosopher Anthony de Jasay has penned a column for The Library of Economics & Liberty that says Economic textbooks in Europe teach the young to despise liberty. If this is the condition in Europe, how much worse must it be in India.

Do take a look at one of my prize-winning articles of 2002, called "Teacher! Don't Teach Nonsense", on the website of The Centre for Civil Society, New Delhi. Do browse through this website for many more interesting articles. If you go through the books published by CCS, you will find my Free Your Mind: A Beginner's Guide to Poltical Economy, which can be downloaded for free. This book has been translated into Hindi and Gujarati already, and is soon to be published in Chinese! I have a second edition of this ready, so if any publisher is interested, do write to me.
