    This isn't a theory. Have a look at the links I included, or do your independent research if you wish.

    "If you've ever wanted to understand what neoliberalism is, this is the series for you. The world we live in today was born the moment World War II ended. But though it may be accurate to say that the modern world lives in the shadow of World War II, the more precise answer is that the modern world lives in the shadow of the decades immediately following World War II. These three decades - the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s - were the critical years that would determine the fate of Keynes’ evolution of liberalism, and the path leading away from a conflict whose devastation still remains unsurpassed to this day. In order to understand how neoliberalism supplanted the Postwar Consensus in the three decades immediately following World War II, we must investigate the evolution of neoliberal thought during the postwar period, which would one day achieve a neoliberal revolution in approximately 1981."

    I put this here for you to do the thinking. My own thought is that the neoliberal ideology spread and maintained by members of the Mont Pelerin Society is the source of a tremendous amount of suffering in society. Gigantically more so than the suffering caused by the "Church" of Scientology. Only by addressing the source of the problem will Anonymous be able to cause lasting change. And that not only by tearing everything down, but by actively replacing it with something much better, like setting our world on a path to a post-scarcity economy. More on this in Nick Srnicek's "Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work."

    The ideology meticulously put in place by The Mont Pelerin Society ripped apart by the pandemic just in time before it devoured the world.

    "Thirteen years after the financial crisis put the global economy on life support, neoliberal capitalism is facing an existential crisis. The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the disastrous consequences of decades of privatisation, deregulation and outsourcing. In order to contain the economic fallout from the pandemic, western countries have ripped up the neoliberal playbook."
