    Excellent article. I would only wish to highlight the way in which the Left denies the whole concept of “basic needs” when it comes to welfare, only to drag it out of the cupboard again when trying to decry economic growth; whilst growth itself is attacked when it results from “capitalism” but urged as the purpose of all politics to justify the depredations of the communist state. The whole thing is summed up in Solzhenitsyn’s wonderful remark about “the ideological acrobatics” of socialism.
