And this whole idea of “sex work,” gosh, even the expression is stupid. People think they are being progressive and even subversive with this pathetic neoliberal mantra that everything is a commodity.
It’s incredible how many of these pseudo-progressive slogans are dusty old neoliberal clichés. “Markets in everything,” as the guru of neoliberalism Tyler Cowen always says. And woe be onto anybody who suggests that markets shouldn’t be in everything.
It’s gotten to the point where it’s considered progressive to applaud exploitation of extremely damaged people. Because the worst thing that can happen is that a consumer won’t be able to buy what he wants.
Cowen, at least, is honest about his ideology.
