The mass consumption era and the rise of neo-liberalism | Bill Mitchell – billy blog

Bill Mitchell is a living Australian treasure. Read, read and read some more. This man makes sense of paradox and pain.

Now I just need time to reflect on why, what he says makes me feel better.

I hope its not because, like a victim of rape, I have just had my feelings  explained as symptoms and my symptoms explained under a syndrome.

But it does all make sense.

I hope it’s not because that will mean we really have (all but the 1% ers) been fucked over by the rapist neo- liberalism.

I just thought I was having a nightmare. It did happen. Now I have to try to do something to heal. Better play some reggae!
