    I’m really enjoying this series of outtakes. It’s helped me take some small steps towards understanding neoliberalism, which is always helpful in a “know your enemy” way. I only hope I can hold on to that understanding.

    A minor note: your comment about “one law for the lion and the ox” made me think of a quote I like from Anatole France’s The Red Lily:

    “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, or to steal bread.”

    It’s worth noting that Hayek et al’s idea of a strong conservative state to “prevent” economic intervention or redistribution of wealth implicitly assumes that the economic status quo and present distribution of wealth are “normal,” and not themselves a system of domination with the state at its core.

    But the distribution of wealth, especially in natural resources and land, is the cumulative effect of centuries of massive robbery, looting and expropriation aided by the state globally — not to mention the uncompensated generational effects of past slavery. And the propertied classes’ current income results not only from sitting atop those mountains of stolen loot, but ongoing state intervention to enforce all the artificial scarcities (especially “intellectual property”) that are the biggest source of economic rents.

    My greatest dread was the point at which I composed the principal module at the college and in one of the inquiries I needed to answer pipmmeno with the right composing structure. So it truly encouraged to compose everything consummately well.
