Abstract

Care’s qualities are vitally needed to address the environmental and social crises we face. This chapter argues that neoliberalism has promoted a culture that attacks care, acting as a perverse organization to support the aims of a neoliberal global economy framed in an unsustainable way to exploit people and the planet. This culture’s role has been to deregulate people’s moral sense through encouraging them to turn a blind eye to their feelings of disquiet and moral unease at living in this economy.
