to an extent, yes
but even standard evil capitalism recognises that maintaining a healthy & skilled/educated workforce operating within a carrot & stick social contract is a key aspect of productivity and that good governance keeps the whole thing from toppling over/blowing up and that ‘acts of God’ can intervene to bring flood, famine, disease etc
in the neoliberal model the areas of health, education & social stability are not viewed as input drivers toward a good economy but rather as markets to be exploited directly, that protections (regulations, state ownership/managment etc) are obstacles to the exploitation of these commodities and that it is the 1%ers themselves that should be allowed to intervene and ‘free up’ this capital as the gods of wealth creation, that no area or sector is out of bounds for exploitation and that anything & everything should be considered only within the frame of the ‘bottom line’
of course, this is an extreme simplification and neoliberalism is a direct descendant of a certain kind of capitalism which is probably more correctly termed econo-fascism or something, actual fascism masquerading as fiscal policy rather than religious or social doctrine (and inseparable from the structural biases that have brought us here and built the now).
A Tory hard-brexit will be the neo-liberalists’ fait accompli across the UK-US axis and fuck knows what happens in 30 years time or so when productivity will be entirely based on algorithms, AI & robots serving the monied classes while the non-citizens are traded for offal or something. The neoliberals (or their willing bidders) are all there on the benches closing in on the kill.
And then I look across at Corbyn’s lot & I try to hope & believe that there are still public servants there and I know there are people who believe in the many & not the few but I cannot help thinking that it’s the ultimate in political naivety to think that the Tories are going to create the structure for total de-regulation of the UK and then let Labour waltz in and quickly build a socialist utopia for the workers where Amazon where about to build drone-policed megacities …or Wish Fulfillment Municipalities with St Bezos Robohospitals or whatever they’re going to brand them as
