From the article:
“…the brutal imposition of neoliberal principles of privatisation and deregulation.” (emphasis mine)
“Deregulation” is a short way of saying “making legal what was once illegal for very good reasons.” Due to the saturation of media propaganda, too many of us still think that giving Lloyd Blankfein a license to steal, or the Kochs to pollute, makes us all more free.
Not true–quite the opposite, in fact.
With that said, this article points the way forward and gives me hope. All power to the people, as Chairman Fred, among others, often said.
