Quotable: Naomi Klein on neoliberal bullshit

“What I dislike most about the trickle-down democracy argument is the dishonor it pays to all the people who fought, and fight still, for genuine democratic change in their countries, whether for the right to vote, or to have access to land, or to form unions. Democracy isn’t the work of the market’s invisible hand; it is the work of real hands….Real democracy–true decision-making power in the people’s hands–is always demanded, never granted.”
