Combining both Sikh principles and Economic theory, this work aims to increase education of these concepts amongst the Guru Khalsa Panth and the wider Sangat
The Azadist Manifesto introduces the politcal-economic philosophy of Azadism as a Sikhi-based alternative to authoritarian ideals and central-planning.
For the Khalsa especially, studying economics allows us to better understand the world around us in order to avoid manipulation and exploitation.
On observation, there has been a rise in certain ideas within the Panth that seem to not only go against basic principles of economics, but are also antithetical to Sikhi itself.
Petty squabbles about largely meaningless things have become the norm, and society all around us is becoming more and more polarised in terms of left-wing / right-wing nonsense.
The real problem is, and has always been, the battle between liberty and authoritarianism.
Therefore, this project is an attempt to combat these bad ideas with a set of better ideas, drawing from both Sikh principles and the latest developments in the field of economics.
Azadism is the world's first Sikhi based economic-political ideology, designed as an alternative to ideas such as Socialism and Communism*.

Many of the economic-political ideas presented here are already in existence, Azadism aims to relate and compare these directly to Sikhi as well as bring attention to them for the benefit of the Guru Khalsa Panth.
                *At the least these things imposed on a state level. Voluntarily and privately they are fine and can even be practiced within an Azadist stystem (communes, worker co-ops, etc.). Forced collectivism is what Azadism is against.
Drawing primarily from the principles of the Austrian School of Economics in Free-Markets and Capitalism, Azadism similarly places Economic Freedom as a key component for prosperity. The trade and management of resources should be firmly with the people (private sector) and the state can not be a participant in the economy.

Prices for goods and services are determined through competition between private entities.
Although this work is primarily focused on the economics, any discussion around Raajniti can not exclude politics.

Azadism falls under a class of ideas known as Libertarianism and thus promotes individual human freedom as a priority. The role and influence of the state is therefore minimised to help ensure this.

To be even more specific, Azadism covers both Minarchist and Anarchist positions
Therefore, government should be small (if one at all) and hold little influence of a nation's economy. Instead, Azadism begins when the state is responsible for only the following 4 things*:
1. National Defence
2. Policing
3. Justice System
4. Taxes
*At least to begin with. Even these may be narrowed down over time...
Under the Azadist framework, these functions could be managed by a decentralised confederacy of Khalsa Misls. Each independent of each other, competing to satisfy these roles*.
