On Neoliberalism: An Interview with Takis Fotopoulos
(8 May 2009)
 13-part Playlist  On the rise of Neoliberalism  On New Social Movements  On Neoliberalism and War  On the Working Class Movement  On Neoliberalism and Media  On Community Politics and the Poll Tax Riots  On Globalization and the End of Social Democracy  On Neoliberal Deindustrialization and the present crisis  On Direct Action and the Antiglobalization Movement  On "Terrorism" and the Wars of the Transnational Elite  On Students' Reaction to Neoliberalism in Britain versus France and Greece  On Totalitarian versus "Democratic" Media  On Anti-Systemic Consciousness and Transitional Strategies
This is a 13-part video interview with T. Fotopoulos on the rise of the neoliberal phase of modernity (mid 70s - now) and the consequent emergence of neoliberal globalisation, which was established formally in UK with the rise of Thatcherism and in US with the rise of Reaganomics, although the systemic structural trends for it took off much earlier, with the opening of markets and the huge expansion of multinational corporations.
Takis' interview is set about many aspects of Systemic Violence, both indirect and direct, against the vast majority of people around the world and especially in Britain, which were established or expanded throughout the now-omnipresent neoliberal/social-liberal consensus:
From the (never-ending) war on "terrorism" to the true nature of May '68 and from the Working Class movement to Academic Repression, this is an important 13-part interview for every citizen who would like to know the history and nature of what the Reformist Left and the mass media call just "neoliberal politics", in a simplistic, if not suspicious, way , disorienting people from the crucial fact that, as long as markets remain open and liberalised, governments of countries integrated into the system of the internationalised market economy will have to follow basically the same policies, whether they are conservative, or "socialist", green or fundamentalist.
