The idea

In the Economist, leaders article says that the “Ideas should not be suppressed, but nor should they be worshipped……. there is no sure defence against bad ideas, but one place to start is with a well-educated and sceptical citizenry that is free to listen to the notions of the intellectuals but is not in thrall to them—and, yes, may prefer the sports channel instead.”.

Now any one can imagine how socialist and communists talks about idea in India and why they are against any reforms in education, healthcare etc.
