Mark Fisher called this “Capitalist Realism”. It tells us it’s futile to try to imagine an alternative to capitalism. For 40 years it aggressively policed the boundaries of our collective imagination, for what could be considered politically possible. The flattening and deadening of our expectations and horizons.
