Is the World Throwing Off the Chains of Neoliberalism?
Thom plus logo In these days of dark news from the rise of militarism to a new wave of Covid, there are green shoots: neoliberalism is finally being replaced by social democracy around the world & in America.

Seventeen years before Reagan plunged America into the pains of our current 40-year-long experiment with neoliberalism, Henry Kissinger, the CIA and the University of Chicago's Milton Friedman helped a murderous general, Augusto Pinochet, stage a military coup in Chile. Their goal was to "prove" Friedman's bizarre new economic and political theory could one day save the world from both communism and fascism.

Not only did neoliberalism not save the world, it has (predictably) empowered authoritarians across the planet. Here in America, as the working-class "pie" has steadily shrunk while the top 1% looted our nation, neoliberalism pitted newly economically insecure people against each other, often with violence like we saw here on January 6th.

But now the world, like large parts of America, is waking up and throwing off the chains of neoliberalism.
