Basic Similarity

All of the 21st-century US presidents are equally neoliberal. The only thing that differs among them is the flavor of the rhetoric they use to distract voters from this basic similarity.

“Build the wall” that never gets built is the equivalent of “cancel student debt” that never gets cancelled. While we fight over whether it makes sense to build or cancel, we forget to notice that the only thing that actually happens is that we get poorer and our lives get more uncomfortable.

  1. Yes indeed in the US. In the UK, do you see Boris Johnson as equally neoliberal, or do you think he’s any better?
