Guardian: Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems

So much here to unpack.

We can’t fight something faceless and nameless. We can’t see what we can’t see. When the problem is everything, how do you get outside of ‘everything’? The first fish turns to the second fish and says, What is water? If the ‘solution’ causes the problem, then more of the ‘solution’ will only lead to more of the problem. I say freedom, you hear freedom.

‘Inequality is recast as virtuous … The market ensures that everyone gets what they deserve … The rich persuade themselves that they acquired their wealth through merit … The poor begin to blame themselves for their failures, even when they can do little to change their circumstances.’
