9780099765417: Politics Of Hope

The argument of this book can be stated simply. There are two concepts of a free society, one liberal, the other libertarian. For the past fifty years the libertarian view has prevailed. Shared by politicians of the left and right, it maintains that a free society is ideally one in which individuals are free to pursue their own choices, both political and moral.This view has been tried and failed and has given rise to a social disorder more bleak than any within living memory. In The Politics of Hope Jonathan Sacks proposes a new politics of responsibility in which families, neighbourhoods, communities, voluntary organisations and religious groups have all part to play, a politics not of interest, but of involvement. How, he asks, as a society, do we move from the politics of despair to the politics of hope? (2000-09-12)
