A good question and you have a right to ask.
Any observer, of Australia’s current pre-occupation with trivia and its avoidance of the real issues, has many questions to ask. Our Western Civilisation Conference: The Sun Rises in the West II is planned for for Friday, November 24. It provides the opportunity to ask questions and receive direct, and sometimes politically incorrect, answers.
Biting the invisible hand
In 2014, Toronto-based, UK born writer, Peter Foster asked and answered a question in his book’s title, Why We Bite the Invisible Hand. He delved into this paradox. He asked how we can live in a world of expanding technological wonders and unprecedented well-being and yet hear a constant drum beat of criticism and condemnation of the system that created it?
He described the system as ‘capitalism’. It’s guided by the ‘invisible hand’, a metaphor for economic markets associated with the great Scottish economist, Adam Smith.
Foster concluded that the key to this paradox lies in the field of evolutionary psychology. He explores how so many of our economic assumptions, fed to us by our educational institutions, tend to be wrong and how populist politicians seek to exploit these wrong assumptions. He cautions that when you bite the invisible hand, it always bites back.
Every attempt, by politicians to milk more taxes, invites an equal reaction from the taxed victims and so the political roundabout continues. This cycle repeats itself in the daily media who regard it as nothing more than entertainment.
The next question
What will it take to restore a sense of individual responsibility to Australian communities, to our schools and eventually to our political system?
Ask your questions and expect informed answers on November 24. Don’t come just to be entertained. Our conference is for people who will take action to follow up their concerns for Australia’s future.
