In your own words, what is defrantz’ point, and how does he support it?

deFrantz offers his use of the term “neoliberalism” on p. 129, but this definition from Vox may also be helpful to put in your back pocket as we move forward.
…”The third meaning of “neoliberalism,” most often used in academic circles, encompasses market supremacy — or the extension of markets or market-like logic to more and more spheres of life. This, in turn, has a significant influence on our subjectivity: how we view ourselves, our society, and our roles in it. One insight here is that markets don’t occur naturally but are instead constructed through law and practices, and those practices can be extended into realms well beyond traditional markets.
