On Debord with the idea

“The more powerful the class, the more it claims not to exist.”

-Guy Debord

This quote reminds me of the recent assertion that neoliberalism does not exist, an idea which proliferated just as one of the world’s most preeminent neoliberals — Hillary Clinton — vied for the presidency.

Was lectured by the likes of Vox et al. that there is no such ideology, that it has no proponents, no goal, and in fact is just a myth — despite it dominating the world for the last four decades.
