An Illicit History: The Neoliberal Implosion

Since November of 2016, I’ve heard a lot of people wondering out loud about how we got to this point. How did we end up with Trump as president? How did we end up with so much inequality, and distrust, and division? How is it that the supposed “richest country in the world” has so few material resources to respond to this pandemic?

None of this stuff is simple, and there’s never going to be just one answer, but this video from The Michael Brooks Show tells part of the story:

Thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, layoffs have increased, job interviews have been indefinitely postponed, and many places aren’t hiring new workers. All of that means I really need help paying my bills and keeping a roof over my head. is a way for you to help with that, even if it’s just a little bit, and get some perks and extra content in return. You control how much you give, and how long you give it, and every little bit really does help. When lots of people pitch in, it can make a huge difference. Please help if you’re able, and share my work with others. Thank you!
