Ideologies are thought infrastructures, it’s nuts and bolts are implemented in how people think, that is routinely the politics of the text, the text book, the seminar circuit, the media information flows, and the intelligentsia who formulate these thoughts in the first place, as Marx said (paraphrasing him) ‘many have interpreted the world, the point is to change it’ but currently the world over this maxim is being implemented by the populist right from a Brazil to Philippines. The middle classes want change. The left controlled the discourse in India, a counter narrative is being built.
