Internationalist and inclusive

[Anyone is entitled to fantasise that the BJP would refashion itself as a Swatantra Party-like ‘liberal rightist party’ by shunning the RSS and mending and its doctrine. But politics doesn’t work on fantasies. The birth and growth of the BJP have been based on ideological grooming by the RSS. BJP can't break free from RSS

[The country needs liberalism in the mainstream of politics. This is the ideology that believes in the Free Market as the basis of co-operation and social harmony. The core belief is that there are greater gains to be made in co-operation and the division of labour than in warring; that we gain too when others gain. Further, this ideology is internationalist and inclusive – it seeks the whole of humanity under this market order. It wants none excluded. Free trade across political boundaries, peace, prosperity. Individual rights, individual liberty, individualism. The Politics Of Delusion

[one of the most common mistakes that non-economists make about the way economies work is to assume that wealth-production is a zero-sum process... Economists learn early on that wealth-production in markets in which private property rights are respected is a positive-sum activity: everyone (including ‘the rich’) gets richer only by making others (including ‘the poor’) richer. Apologies to Paul Krugman
from Cafe Hayek by Don Boudreaux]
