Robin Harris talk on the Corona virus and the dangers of social planning

The Centre for Cultural Renewal in Croatia, organised an interesting lecture by Robin Harris, former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, now resident in Croatia. The Centre describes the talk thus:

It is too early to judge the clinical effectiveness of the severe restrictions on liberty imposed to deal with the Corona crisis. But we can already perceive the dangers of giving so much power over people’s lives to the state. This model of central planning, which the crisis has legitimised, and which was last fully practised under Communism, never works. Robin Harris will suggest why, and discuss the implications for public policy.

Robin Harris has also written an article on the role of the Catholic church in Croatia, published in the Catholic Herald. It is well worth reading and can be seen here.
