Son, the world is a lot more complicated than you realize. I understand how you much you would like the nice, simple clean solution of a scapegoat class:

“THE ELITE”

But blaming them for the problems of society won’t help you find any solutions, because you’re barking up the wrong tree. In the same way, blaming it all on some evil force you call “neoliberalism” won’t get you anywhere, either.

First, you need to understand what’s really going on. That will take you a lot of study, but you can’t even start if you clutch at simplistic answers. So I recommend that you start with a simple statement of humility:

“I don’t like what’s happening, but I don’t understand it well enough to recommend a solution.”

If you can convince yourself of the above statement, you’re on your way. A lot of people never get past that step.
