Neoliberalism is nothing more than rule by the finance sector. We need to reclaim the State and use fiscal policy to invest in public purpose again (MMT).
Private bankers shouldn’t be governing a nation. They had 40 years to prove they were “far advanced than the nation-state” and instead, society fell apart.
End the credit card addiction of the past 40 years that was just done to make private banks profit. The finance/private sector proved to be 100x worse at governing, running healthcare, education, even the airline service and safety has deteriorated. Just about everything gov’t did much better before this coup happened:
“The “nation-state” as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”
~ Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages, 1970
“The Trilateralist Commission is international…(and)…is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests BY SEIZING CONTROL OF THE POLITICAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. The Trilateralist Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power - political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.”
~ Barry Goldwater, With No Apologies, 1979
Excellent monologue by Bill Maher on the 40-yr. incremental middle class squeeze here.
Americans, especially the right, need to ask ourselves, which is worse, picking up where the Roosevelt Republic left off, when the US enjoyed the most prosperous decades in history and highest standard of living the world had ever seen,
going along on this neoliberal (libertarian) trajectory, where everything is privatized and government is dismantled to the point of becoming non-existent, except of course for the MIC?
Getting rid of gov’t means no more human rights, no safety regulations, or environmental protections. That’s why they’ve taken Civics out of the educational curriculum. Why should people learn about rights in a future world of no citizenship?
And forget about freedom to roam. There would be restricted zones, less car ownership, more mass transit, less private property ownership. Why do you think housing prices are so out of reach?
AOC = communism?? No. THIS is communism, or as they like to call it, communitarianism (communism/libertarianism):
"In a libertarian society, there is no commons or public space. There are property lines, not borders. When it comes to real property and physical movement across such real property, there are owners, guests, licensees, business invitees and trespassers - not legal and illegal immigrants.” ~ Jeff Deist, president of the Mises Institute
They’ve already tried their experiment of replacing nations with privately owned “charter cities” in Honduras, but it didn’t work, unsurprisingly.
This Wall St/Koch donor network-fueled libertarian/neoliberal nightmare needs to end. It won’t until we wake up and stop it.
