Neoliberal Way of Thinking

With the news that Robert Mueller has a copy of the original letter on James Comey’s firing written by Trump aide Stephen Miller and Trump himself, we need to return to the great mystery of that lost hour on the tarmac on Air Force One.

Every hour spent trying to figure out “the great mystery of that lost hour on the tarmac” or bitching about Melanka’s shoes in Texas is taken away from discussing strategies of dealing with liquid capital. Which are not discussed. 

Of course, if somebody tried doing both things at once, that would be ok. But nobody is even trying. The deeply neoliberal fascination with easy solutions has won the day. People have convinced themselves that removing Trump from office will somehow, for 3 easy payments of $19.99, make everything great again.
