Re: <nettime> Neoliberalism & alt-rght trolls

I would say no. Neo-liberalism comes with politically correct identity
politics. It does not allow weirdness and ‘freedom of speech’.
Neo-liberalism is out to claim consensus and cannot argue in public. It
has to silence the fringe and ignores it in a deep and, until recently,
effective way. That’s maybe also why alt-right came into being in the
first place. Neo-liberalism is a hegemonic block, pretty much as Gramsci
once defined it.
