The Politics of the Dispossessed

In times of crisis, the solutions are created out of the ideas and intellectual infrastructure that has already been developed. This is clear from analysis of the neoliberal school, which began with the first generation of think tanks to develop and pursue political objectives under the guise of objective economic analysis. Of course, in hindsight this turned out to be anything but objective, as it was generally wrong for obvious reasons and it systematically benefited rich donors and corporate interests alike. This is clear from looking at the growth in wealth disparity over the last decades, which has grown to the point of seriously threatening the political climate over the following decades. The politics of the dispossessed are not kind to the current order, they are strengthened by chaos and also produce great upheavals. This stands as a rational concern for the disinterested analyst.
