Goodbye Neoliberalism

A failure to reduce inequality is a failure to govern. The Liberal-National government however, and those whose interests it represents, do not view the growth of inequality as a policy failure. Intoxicated by the fallacy that the freer the market the freer the people, they see inequality as a fruit of the freedom that neoliberalism gives to the few to exploit and exclude the many. They see inequality as a measure of ingenuity, innovation, enterprise, and unfettered individualism. They see it as a measure of our nation’s freedom.

Inequality is not the measure of our nation’s freedom.

Inequality is the measure of our nation’s shame.
