Prof. Richard Belanger, a Canadian lecturer at the Dr. Sarvelpalli Radhakrishnan Technical Institute in Mahler, addressed a group of students at the Annie Sullivan University in June, and expressed his concerns regarding globalization and the rightwing policies that have dominated Western politics in recent years. To a great extent he blames the ramblings of Friederich Hayek for this dog eat dog movement that has little regard for those who are not prepared to be aggressive and unprincipled . Hayek, a recipient of the Nobel Prize for Economics was a believer in a free marketplace with little or no interference from governments and, according to Belanger, was the darling of petty dictators such as Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.
“The success of the Republic of Morlimoria would have inconceivable to Hayek, he said, “He would not have thought it possible for a caring, sharing society to succeed, and as somewhat of a racist he would have been amazed how races and cultures have blended in this country.”
Belanger went on to say that Hayek is still reaching out from the grave to influence movements like the Tea Party in the United States and even Prime Minister Harper in his native Canada. “People have fought and died to establish a society where money is not the only measure of a man’s worth and now there are those who are prepared to tear it all apart.” He concluded by saying, “Please be proud of what has been accomplished here you don’t have a dam thing to be ashamed of.”
