  • To me “neoliberal” implies something more strongly and consciously right-leaning than “liberal”, which includes all the wishy-washy centrists who think a little bit of tinkering around the edges and an appeal to decency and fairness can fix the problems of capitalism, without ever recognizing them as basic features of capitalism itself. So there’s a purpose to using the term “liberal”: it’s broader, and includes ideological neoliberals as well as those who think they’re leftish but actually cooperate with and facilitate all the exploitation around us.
