In fact, for neoliberalism, democracy is India Phone Number List usually a metaphor for the market, while freedom is conceived as economic freedom. The market is the material, concrete expression of freedom. There is no other possible. Everything else is secondary. Precisely, as Melinda Cooper explains, neoliberal individualism fits perfectly India Phone Number List with the defense of the traditional family, the one that works as a social stabilizer, a space for social control and subordination of women, children and LGTBI people and where a good part of patriarchal violence is reproduced. Cooper's work, which focuses on the United States, shows how India Phone Number List neoliberal cuts in public spending on education, health, and welfare were based on the assumption that family relationships.
Would replace these public India Phone Number List services out of intergenerational debt. In this sense, the neoliberals were not so far from the conservatives in their proposals, although, unlike the latter –or the Fordist order–, their proposal was not subject to specific disciplinary sexual customs or to a defense of the heteronormative family. Family ties are thus shown to be essential to absorb the shocks and indeterminacy caused by the free India Phone Number List market, since it is intended to dismantle any welfare support while work is liberalized – precarious – and basic goods are left at the mercy of the “invisible hand”. ». Thus, neoliberalism uses the family to reduce functions of the State. In fact, after the 2008 crisis, with the cuts and austerity –the neoliberal way out– the family has become more important for people's survival. Let us remember, the India Phone Number List family is that institution without which there.
Would be no workers ready to India Phone Number List be exploited – women who reproduce the labor force. And that is essential to reproduce the class structure. In the neoliberal order, moreover, social origin matters more and more for people's economic and life possibilities. Inheritance is an essential mechanism, but also education, contacts, the India Phone Number List possibilities of indebtedness, etc. The problem is not the family itself, but the fact of not having alternatives that grant autonomy. As Cinzia Arruzza points out, despite the multiplication of sexual identities and practices and the increased visibility of trans people and gender non-conforming India Phone Number List lifestyles – as well as their commodification and promotion as niche markets and new sources of profit and sites of investment–, the family has continued to gain weight and so India Phone Number List has the support it implies.
