Anti-neoliberal Debate

Also, I was at an anti-neoliberal debate today. Yes, I have a full schedule. I went into the meeting straight out of the radio interview. One of the ideas I really like is this: if the power is opaque, so should be our opposition to it.

Neoliberalism wins by positioning itself as commonsensical. It’s just how things are, we are led to believe. To stand up to this, we need our own common sense. We must cultivate and strengthen our own way of being.

Being reactive strengthens the opponent. It reaffirms the opponent’s dominance and leadership.

The visible, superficial moves of the opponent are a distraction maneuver. We need to look at what happens under the surface.
