'Neoliberal' is such a comforting word. It sounds so much better than 'I instinctively disagree but can't articulate a rational reason why'
posit: left won the culture war & the right won the economic one: gay rights & unemployment benefit, and free-ish markets…
but the right in the US and the left more generally (especially Labour) haven’t accepted this….
and the ‘neoliberalism’ construct looks like a way to attack the winning economic model w/out accepting it won. Perhaps ;)
that is, ‘NL’ lets you claim you’re still on the left w/out having to argue the post-office should have a monopoly on phones
