In his major published works, Hayek gives little indication of how the threats to market freedom might be resisted and his intellectual emergency equipment implemented. However, over the 1970s, particularly in a series of letters to The Times, the method by which democracy might be limited and the pursuit of social justice terminated became clear. The new constitutional and legal framework required for true individualism to survive could not be introduced by the old order. A moment of exception, of transformative change, was necessary. A period of liberal authoritarianism, a regime that would decisively limit democracy and push back the forces of organised labour and the emancipatory movements of the 1960s and ’70s would be required.
