Let Them Eat Diversity

Interessantes Interview mit Walter Benn Michaels zu der Vereinbarkeit von Anti-Rassismus, Anti-Diskriminierung und neoliberaler Ideologie.

-And today’s orthodoxy is the idea that social justice consists above all in defense of property and the attack of discrimination.

-You get a different vision of what postmodernism, for example, is when you begin to see postmodernism as the official ideology of neoliberalism and that’s a vision you can’t have until you have a kind of sense of what neoliberalism is.

-None of this will make any difference unless we start thinking about the politically relevant question, eliminating the gap between the rich and the poor.
