The de-banking of Nigel Farage goes back thousands of years… sort of. It’s part of a never-ending conflict in society between the do-gooders and their naysayers. Or, as philosophers put it, between negative and positive rights.

In this video, Southbank Investment Research’s investment director John Butler and I explain the link between Plato, Aristotle and the “Culture Wars” we’re seeing in society and politics, which go well beyond de-banking, of course.

At the heart of it all is one question: do your so-called betters have the right to interfere in your life to promote their version of “good”?
