It was the twentieth-century Italian social theorist Antonio Gramsci who gave us the concept of a hegemonic ideology—an ideology that has so successfully beaten out its competitors that it no longer appears to be an ideology at all; instead, it assumes the character of common sense, departure from which indicates ignorance, error, eccentricity, or even madness. The hegemonic ideology of our time is neoliberalism. Neoliberalism has its origins in the Mont Pelerin Society, which was formed by Austrian economist Friedrich von Hayek in , and whose luminaries included other icons of neoliberal thought such as Ludwig von Mises and Milton Friedman. Its first political breakthrough was the military coup in Chile, and the economic policies of the Pinochet regime were the acknowledged inspiration for the so-called Thatcher-Reagan revolution of the s. This near-ubiquitous economic restructuring is a necessary, albeit insufficient, condition for the achievement of hegemony. In economics, neoliberalism promotes—with rigorous and disciplined internal coherence—the radical programs of deregulation, privatization, marketization, and globalization.
