Socialism and communism quickly changed from a movement whose aim was a new society and a new man into one whose ideal was a bourgeois life for all, the universalized bourgeois as the men and women of the future.

#quote from the #thinkingallowed #bbc #podcast: We use a sort of tag word #neoliberalism to refer to a kind of hyper capitalism that emphasises privatization, deregulation, short term profits at all cost, sort of an entia tax, entia regulation, sort of a diminishment of public goods provision, social safety net idea. So what we critisizing here is that rather than allowing to market to function on top of negotiated values toward ends that have identified by our society, what we see now with this emphasis on neoliberal policies is that the market principles have become #values and the ends, and so they are used to determine all our social policies.
