“If there is something that unifies the nuances, the debates, and the perspectives of this book, it is the consciousness of the fact that the word liberty has a very important social dimension. Much of neoliberal culture has been founded on the desire to erase the social origins of liberty, this is to say, the need of a public space in which to balance, exercise, and defend the right to a certain freedom of will. That which is public is not sold, it is defended, because the citizens cannot be sold, You must defend them, one by one, each solitary person, each waking individual, life by life.”
