Mahatma Gandhi for the 21st Century
Capitalism in Western Europe and America and Communism in Eastern Europe and China have failed to solve the problems of poverty, pollution, waste, wars,religious conflict and many other human and environmental problems of our time. The philosophy and ideals promoted by Mahatma Gandhi embedded in the principles of non-violence, economic equality, sustainability, spirituality,
arts and crafts and decentralised politics and local economics offer a genuine way out of current human predicament. Free market orthodoxy on the one hand and state control on the other deprive the majority of people of a decent, fulfilling and equitable life. The Gandhian ideal is the antidote to both capitalist and communist models.
In his lecture Satish Kumar will illuminate the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in the 21st Century.
