Neo-liberalism and Democracy

This article attempts to analyse the rise of fascism in Indian politics and explains the growing popularity of a "messiah" who promises to solve all problems in the "closure" of politics under neo-liberalism. It sheds light on the decline of class politics and the rise of "identity politics", the growing clamour against "corruption" and politicians and proposes a path for left politics to break the hegemony of globalised capital.
