The following booklet titled “Socialism: Has it Become a Doctrine of the Past?” by A.D.Shroff provides the views of numerous socialist leaders on socialist dogmas that they considered were necessary for a start. He draws a contrast to the situation in socialist nations such as Austria, where chambers of commerce are consulted on business problems. But in India, there has been a great deal of misunderstanding of the private sector, as bureaucrats and leading authorities treat it as untouchables and have a negative attitude toward it, which is frequently highlighted in their speeches. It is critical that the ruling authorities engage the private sector before causing harm, since this would save significant sums of money that have been squandered in recent years. The author draws attention to the fact that, on the one hand, one group of people are working hard to pique the interest of private investors in the United States in the possibilities of Indian economic development, while bureaucrats with arrogance have been going around the country telling American investors that the private sector is incapable, when in fact the private sector is capable.The author concludes that, in light of the threats that exist in the country, we can attain liberation from the horrors of a socialist society if we all independently persist in expressing the opinions we hold without fear.
