That state was never liberal democratic; it was democratic liberal all along. Similarly, that movement was never authoritarian neoliberal; it was neoliberal authoritarian all along.

Neoliberalism, liberalism, capitalism,

Neoliberalism erases the thin line between liberalism and capitalism. “Neoliberal capitalism,” then, is redundant in a way that “liberal capitalism” was not.

One side > the other.

Neoliberalism is economic liberalism without the moral trappings.

The job.

The indispensable academic skill at Neoliberal University is winning brutal competitions for artificially-scarce resources and respect.

Do you think “neoliberalism” ruined the liberal arts?

The public sector doesn’t have illegitimate privileges that nobody should have; it provides useful, secure jobs that everybody should have. 

Human capital.

An abundance of character accumulates through the internalization of cruelty.
