Indeed, when we consider the situation of Americans “at home” in a literal sense, we confront such conditions as a lack of paid maternity leave, a child care system that is unsystematic and frequently unaffordable, a powerful stigma placed on the poor who seek state assistance and a growing pressure to privatize virtually all public activities, including the public retirement system. It is clear that the United States is on course, “full steam ahead,” toward the creation of a system of “cradle to grave” neoliberalism whose highest moral teaching amounts to little more than an exhortation to the young to either “sink or swim.
