The discussion-ending argument of neoliberalism whereby there is no alternative may now be regarded as outdated. “There is no alternative” was yesterday. Today the opposite is true: “There are thousands of alternatives!” Of course, this raises other questions: if all paths are open, what course should we follow to overcome the prevailing economic system and its profound crises? Is it better to bring about small changes step by step? Or, in view of the extent of the global problems, consider radical change instead?
One approach emerges as castle in the air, unfeasible, while the other simply follows well-worn tracks and makes too many compromises. On the other hand, major progress often only becomes possible as a result of radical thought! But how many utopias have never even come near to implementation?
