Conversation with John Anderson: freedom under threat
Australia’s former deputy Prime Minister, John Anderson, recently interviewed me in London as part of series of conversations he has conducted for his website.
Anderson is himself deeply concerned about the increasing eclipse of freedom. The “Great Financial Crisis”, he has written, has exposed the economic and social vulnerability of many seemingly strong and prosperous nations. “Even Australia, free of commonwealth debt and enjoying the benefits of its trade with China, rapidly lost its way”.
So we talked about the sources of political and personal liberty in Britain and the west, the current threats to that liberty and what can be done to preserve it. You can watch the interview here.
