Ukraine, Personal Responsibility, & Neoliberalism 2.0

Although I agree in principle with all these 'stand with Ukraine' expressions, they all show the failure of nations to deal with the issue. Just as pollution was rebranded an individual responsibility and each of us were expected to buckle down to the three R's while corporate pollution was ignored in favour of economic expansion, so too are we individuals are expected to add a Ukraine flag, stop drinking vodka, and drop 'the' from Ukraine while the nations our taxes prop up twiddle their fingers to keep Russian gas pumping.

Welcome to neoliberalism 2.0.
