Policy toward Iraq cannot be reduced simply to the expediency of its antiterrorism campaign or its need to seize Iraq’s rich oil reserves. The roots of this indifference to the rights and needs of children, if not human life in general, must be understood within the larger framework of neoliberalism. As both an economic policy and political strategy, neoliberalism refuses to sustain the social wage, destroys those institutions that maintain social provisions, privatizes all aspects of the public good, and narrows the role of the state to being both a gatekeeper for capital and a policing force for maintaining social order and racial control.
As an economic policy, neoliberalism allows a handful of private interests to control all aspects of society, and defines society exclusively through the privileging of market relations, deregulation, privatization, and consumerism. As a political philosophy, neoliberalism construes profit making as the essence of democracy and provides a rationale for a handful of private interests to control as much of social life as possible to maximize their financial investments. Unrestricted by social legislation or government regulation, market relations as they define the economy are viewed as a paradigm for democracy itself.
