As John Williamson pointed out, the Washington Consensus was not neoliberal, in fact, none of the international financial institutions are "neoliberal" in the strict meaning of that term if by that you want to tie to the ideas of Hayek and Friedman. And btw, if that is true, then the claim that neoliberalism had anything to do with the global financial crisis is also just as wrong-headed. Time for these historians of capitalism to up their game and get conceptually clear and historically more accurate. Then we could have a really productive conversation.

Marxismo cultural

This is an excellent short video explaining the source and nature of Cultural Marxist movements like political correctness, modern feminism, pansexualism, multiculturalism, “whiteness studies,” etc.  For an in-depth critique of the thinkers whose writings shaped Cultural Marxism, see Fools, Frauds and Firebrands:  Thinkers of the New Left by the eminent British philosopher Roger Scruton.  Scruton brilliantly exposes the pretensions, obscurities, and inanities of Sartre, Foucault, Galbraith, Marcuse, Lukacs, Habermas, Adorno, Rawls, Dworkin and others of their ilk. The book is not just a philosophical tract but a work in critical political economy and contains one of the most penetrating discussions of the Marxist labor theory of value that I have ever read.

Note: The views expressed on Mises.org are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.

Marx e Toqueville

"Ever since scholars rediscovered Tocqueville after World War II, they have generally viewed him in contrast to Marx, for some a liberal and pluralist answer to Marxist tyranny. Writing at approximately the same time, diagnosing the social and political ills of the mid-nineteenth century, and predicting the future, Tocqueville and Marx appear as contrasts, because both their analyses and their conclusions are usually different. Nonetheless, there are significant similarities between Tocqueville and Marx including their predictions of an irresistible historical march toward equality, their uses of class analyses, and their hopes for some new kind of association – they use the same word – to save humankind from a new tyranny."

Libertarianismo e a velha direita

Libertarianism is a set of positions, not people. If a libertarian holds a non-libertarian position, then it's no less non-libertarian than if a socialist held it. Don't confuse people with positions.
Libertarians have more in common with the alt-right than they want you to think - The Washington Post
Freedom-lovers may say they share nothing with the racially-motivated right. But history suggests otherwise.

Escola de Frankfurt

"Para a Escola de Frankfurt, colocar limites sobre o mundo material, colocar regras externas e diretrizes sobre o ambiente no qual os indivíduos vivem, pensam e operam, seria uma medida que, na visão deles, seria suficiente para moldar a experiência cognitiva dos indivíduos e, com isso, confinar seus espíritos aos parâmetros "desejados".
Esse é o ponto-chave que liga a Escola de Frankfurt àquilo que hoje conhecemos como o "politicamente correto". No cerne do politicamente correto está a crença de que menos liberdade garante mais justiça e, consequentemente, mais segurança. Este mantra é regurgitado por meio de instituições acadêmicas e discursos políticos, inserido em valores sociais e plantado nas mentes das gerações mais jovens (futuros eleitores) por meio das escolas e faculdades, exatamente como era intenção da Escola de Frankfurt.
Max Horkheimer, um filósofo marxista, foi um dos pais fundadores da Escola de Frankfurt, a qual incorporava toda a moderna Teoria Crítica da Sociedade e que,…

The heroic narrative about taking back control from the European Union is already colliding with dismal facts.
