Neoliberalism and The Twilight Of The Social State

Here we sit FAT/FATHEADED, DUMB/UNTHINKING and LAZY/INACTIVE… While the evil forces within our government weaves the web of deceit and destruction all around us and for what? TO MAKE THE RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER. Sound too bizarre? Sound too simple? Read the two articles within this post and then judge for yourself. I don’t know what we can do about it but if we do not at least acknowledge that it is happening, future generations are going to suffer the consequences of our indifferent ignorance! (Listen up Tea Party!!!)

Neoliberalism and The
Twilight Of The Social State

Two must reads for anyone who thinks
(No let me rephrase that, FOR EVERYONE WHO CAN THINK): First read
what neoliberalism really is.

EXCERPT: “Neo-liberalism” is a set
of economic policies that have become widespread during the last
25 years or so. Although the word is rarely heard in the United
States, you can clearly see the effects of neo-liberalism here as
the rich grow richer and the poor grow poorer.

AND

The main points of neo-liberalism include:

1.
THE RULE OF THE MARKET.
2.
CUTTING PUBLIC EXPENDITURE FOR SOCIAL SERVICES
3.
DEREGULATION.
4. 
PRIVATIZATION
5. 
ELIMINATING THE CONCEPT OF “THE PUBLIC GOOD” or
“COMMUNITY”

Then read this amazing article “In
the Twilight of the Social State: Rethinking Walter Benjamin’s
Angel of History”

by: Henry A. Giroux
EXCERPTS
infamous and cruel tenets of
a harsh neoliberalism stated
by Ronald Reagan and
Margaret Thatcher
1980s
government is the problem not the solution
and
there is no such thing as society
