Why I am Not a Neoliberal

“The world of emergency policy-making under the direct guidance of epidemiology modeling is illustrative not only in its scientific failures, but its habit of placing deliberative democratic institutions and even cherished constitutional rights in a subservient position to what they herald as ‘the science.’ The final twist, however, is that the neoliberalism critics on the illiberal left appear ready to sacrifice the very same norms and constitutional constraints as the self-described neoliberal technocrats, and for the same reasons.” ~ Phillip W.

“During the winter of 1918-1919, not much ice was harvested and stored away. New York City faced an ice famine. The city faced the prospects of riots and the starvation of children, said some.

Thies
