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.
