The Modern State

A set of posters attempting to analyse the political, economic and ideological conditions, which both preceded and gave rise to the Free Market capitalist system, quaintly known in the UK as Thatcherism. It refers to a form of capitalism with financial deregulation, privatisation and lower tax on high earners as a means to bring about a globalised, Neo-Feudal society. The disassemblage of strong Trade Unions was a precondition, as was a political police force and an ideological media. Produced in 1979.
