There is no greater proof of an ideology’s reach and efficacy than the fact that those who espouse it, promote it, and benefit from it completely deny that it exists.

Neoliberalism has been the defining political and economic philosophy since the mid-80s, achieving total dominance after the fall of the Berlin Wall — and the Democrats have been fully infected by it. Chait wishes we did not notice that, and it bothers him that people do.
