Get Real

Issue section: 

Eliane Glaser

In Get Real, Eliane Glaser addresses how the claim that ideology is dead has created an open space for politicians and big businesses to portray their subjective interests as objectively inevitable. Public sector cuts for instance, are presented as a necessity - not as a political choice based on ideological beliefs. She describes how this covert ideology is deliberately used to blur the intentions of the ruling class, leaving the rest of us in a state of false consciousness and with a widening gap between appearance and reality.
