The exit from neoliberalism can only succeed in a social movement and cannot only be a matter of a government or of the parties... May we have courage to reverse our perspective! The failed elites will not give up without a fight any more than the forces of an authoritarian neoliberalism. "Only we ourselves can free ourselves from this misery."...

This map shows the voting pattern in the Nov. 8, 2016, election for mayor of the City of Fresno broken down by precincts. It shows a Tale of Two Cities with the more affluent north Fresno voting for the conservative Republican candidate and the south voting for Henry Perea, the Democrat.
