there is plenty of evidence that proves the main purpose of the neo liberal project is to break up and sell-off the public assets of the state to sell to their rich friends. of course this is done under the name of friendly sounding propoganda like 'free trade' or 'freedom and democracy' etc - sold to us but the propoganda department of the 'free' billionaire owned press. the only question is the whether the damage done to state assets around the world can be seen as direct harm to the citizens. in some cases (see usa health care) it clearly is. as we now realise in england - in many ways, particularly in health and social care) the people ARE the state and will suffer and die if not cared for properly. i've just been reading a bit about the incredible financial arrangments of the largest care home providers in england. these massive assets are sold off eg between germany, dubai and the usa at an alarming rate and all wish to cut costs and piss off workers on minimum wage. this since 1989 when thatcher opened up this part of the health system to the market. anyway - yes, they are killing us but doing a pretty good job of the cover up. look at that old guy walking round his garden! marvelous- good old great britain!
