Above all, this policy sought to overcome the conflicting interpretations and expectations of the post-war world by promoting the solution to European socio-economic problems through free enterprise and astute democratic political management.

Benda’s position on this is important, even though it does represent too ‘pure’ a view.

From this absolutist position the political power of the intellectual comes from holding an impartial position, and that can only be claimed from an independent social position above any partisan political interest.
