It seems to me quite significant that, nowadays, when journalism talks about citizenship and voting, most of the time it uses the language of the electorate instead of that of citizenship. It is a language of voters who must be organized, managed, directed, manipulated, created and oriented, rather than educated. I think you give itDemocracy education at this crucial time is essential to understand how the disintegration of society occurs. Once education abandons the task of creating an educated democracy and becomes an individual investment to have an income and a future, the ability to educate citizens for citizenship begins to be lost. Instead, there is the capacity of power economic power, political power, technological power, financial power manipulate, manage and organize. Those who are considered incapable of being citizens. We act as if the vote – the right to vote and legality is what constitutes citizenship. What makes citizenship valuable in a democratic order is that it is sufficiently thoughtful, I must add that today we speak of neoliberalism Fax Number List and financialization without dismantling them. It is increasingly clear that even if neoliberalism were roundly rejected by entire nations or parts of the world, not just as economic policy but as a form of government of reason, we would still be dealing with the beasts it has unleashed, including are the deregulation of money and banks. Financialization is both a dominant order and a form of neoliberal reason, and one that was not anticipated by Hayek or any of the neoliberal architects of the Mont Pelerin Society. But it is something that our age can see clearly. The Asset Economy[The Economics of Assets], by Lisa Adkins, Melinda Cooper, and Martijn Konings, offers the best discussion of this topic. It is the best introductory book on the subject of how finance capital is structuring politics, inequality and the future for the whole world.
