9. Neoliberalism is a threat

Terrible. For those interested in political theory, you should check out Wendy Brown's writings about neoliberalism. She argues that neoliberalism is an intellectual project that creates a complete rupture from past ways of living; it undermines democracy, marginalizes all modes of living that don't maximize profit, and assaults the human psyche. This train wreck is another unfortunate example of the neoliberalism rationality played out.
