In his post yesterday, blogger, tax specialist and MMT pundit Richard Murphy cites a tweet by a Dr James Davies:
‘Resilience’ is a sneaky neoliberal trope. It frames, as a psychological virtue, painful endurance of circumstances from which others benefit at your expense.
We all do well to reflect on the truth – amid an ocean of lies – on that beautifully framed observation.
(Though methinks it would benefit from the preceding of “painful endurance” with “needlessly”.)
