From this bloke:
Alexandros Stavrakas studied philosophy and anthropology at the LSE and UCL. He is the editor of Bedeutung Magazine.
We get this:
Our collective decisions should not be the result of docility in the face of the constructed objectivity of the \”facts\” of economic theory, but the product of subjective and collective ideological resolutions. If nothing else, this will reinstate our status as ethical agents, answerable and responsible as citizens in the proper sense. Politics must be reinvented as the main point of reference of our collective coexistence and not be reduced to the muscleman of capitalism, an institution that simply enforces and legitimises financial decisions and objectives. The claims of ideology should trump the authority of statistics.
If I stamp my foot and scweam then I shall have ice cream.
Even though Mummy says there isn\’t an ice cream van for miles and miles and miles.
For facts and statitistics, the real world, should be subject to my will.
