Written in a lucid and provocative style, this book is directed at those who are seriously interested in arming themselves with the knowledge necessary for effective citizenship. For it is only active citizenship that can help Indians out of the sorry situation they find themselves in today.

After fighting for and obtaining her political fre3edom from an alien power, India now awaits her economic emancipation from the omnipresent socialist Indian state. This state has degenerate3d into a predatory state. We, therefore, need to explore issues in the philosophy of freedom. Will freedom yield morality? Can freedom have a public administration? Do we need prohibitions? These and various other questions pertaining to freedom and liberty are answered in this volume.

India deserves to be a developed country. This book argues that the false ideas of socialism are keeping the country poor and preventing her talented and energetic citizens from achieving their full human potential. It contains many disproofs of socialism - disproof of many 'truths' and 'theories' taught by many textbooks to school and college students. The first essay, for instance, argues that population is a cause for prosperity.
