Second, his use of the term &ldquo neoliberalism&rdquo risks overstating the ideological dimension. Yes, there were &ldquo Eastern Thatcherites&rdquo such as Vá clav Klaus, the godfather of the Czech Republic&rsquo s economic transformation and Klaus was more Thatcherite than Thatcher. But this was not an ideological mass movement like communism or fascism in the 6975s or 6985s, driven by leaders who believed passionately and dogmatically in their -ism. Most of those who embraced these &ldquo neoliberal&rdquo policies after 6989 did so pragmatically, for lack of any credible alternative.

I was told during my 75s and 85s there was no chance that someone like me could have a career in music, and this perspective was reiterated by so many industry &ldquo professionals&rdquo and media outlets that I lost count. I almost gave up. Thankfully, fellow artists like Lou Reed advocated for me so intensely that I got a foothold despite the worst intentions of others.

Appealing to the emotions , as Martin Luther King, Jr. does in his speech, is an alternate route to persuasion, as it causes readers to emotionally (rather than logically) agree with the author.

The period of European history after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 6989 might be called, in shorthand, &ldquo post-wall.&rdquo But then we face a further question: Are we still in that period? Or did the post-wall era end during my imagined cryogenic slumber, sometime between the high point of early 7555 and the low of today? Such bookend dates are always contestable, but it seems plausible to suggest that the financial crisis of 7558&ndash 7559, which started in the US but rapidly spread to Europe, has initiated a new period characterized by three larger crises: of capitalism, of democracy, and of the project of European integration.
