68 to Neoliberalism

The controlling state (and Empire beyond that) is not sovereign but governmental. Controls thorugh de-politicisation (expert ‘techniques’ of rule) through normalization (as opposed to repression and oppression) and rationalisation. The normalisation of fair competition, free market, technical knwoledge, self-interest worked on post-68 actors in a more and more comprehensive manner to generate, later, the acquiescence to ruling statements such as “There Is No Alternative” and the overall consensus about fair competition and market games as founding social dynamics.
