Don’t set society is your home!

DIPANKAR GUPTA writes in TOI “We have to decide what kind of society we want before we let loose the market……………When one plans for society, one plans for the long run” true but it may not be true what he says that “The muscular sprinter is useless when it comes to running uphill, as only a marathon specialist can. If one were to think long distance then policies that fundamentally encourage equality need to be at the base of every political decision. Nietzsche once said that if a priest and a convict were made to climb mountains they would end up as equals. They would both be exhausted. 

To favour the market and blow the whistle on society only perpetuates the Marx & Spencer brand of politics. Do we really want that? Should not the dead rest in peace?”
