Neoliberalism is a political philosophy whose advocates support economic liberalization , free trade and open markets , privatization , deregulation , and decreasing the size of the public sector while increasing the role of the private sector in modern society . The term was introduced in the late thirties by European liberal scholars to promote a new form of liberalism after interest in classical liberalism had declined in Europe. In the decades that followed, neoliberal theory tended to be at variance with the more laissez-faire doctrine of classical liberalism and promoted instead a market economy under the guidance and rules of a strong state, a model which came to be known as the social market economy . In the sixties , usage of the term "neoliberal" heavily declined. When the term was reintroduced in the following decades, the meaning had shifted.

As it is, the knob offers bi-directional viewing; I wonder if you could half-silver one side and make it one-way?
Nihilism confuses people. "How can you care about anything, or strive for anything, if you believe nothing means anything?" they ask. In return, nihilists point to the assumption of inherent meaning and question that assumption.
The vast majority of the knowledge humans have assembled over the centuries, has been lost. The world's geniuses either kept their revelations to themselves and then died, or else they put it down on paper which has long since rotted or burned or been used to line some parakeet's cage. Obviously we'll never know what great books have been lost to time, but we have clues on some of them, and what those clues tell us is mind-boggling, and a little bit depressing. If you could make a library out of just books that didn't survive, you'd have a collection of some of the best freaking books ever written.
