Regrettably, our Politicians are too stupid to understand what the ideas underpinning neoliberalism are really all about.
Neoliberalism and free markets are all about bringing more wealth to those who are wealthy already and nothing more.
Neoliberalism when adopted at state level is a tool to sanitise and legitimise selfishness at the highest level.
Neoliberalist thinking has helped make it ok to do anything that is legal, even when that legality exists because it has been created only by and for those who benefit from it.
The end result is that others suffer at incalculable number of levels or degrees of separation. Because ethics have been replaced by the idea that you should do things because you can and not because you should.
Neoliberalism is basically a philosophy of creating misery and exploiting others so that those who are able, can benefit from that choice.
Neoliberalism is the modern form of mass slavery, where oppression and suppression has been sold to everyone as freedom and choice.
