This book seeks to make a contribution to the debate concerning how the post-political malaise that infects many societies is part of a decline of our political discourse. Unless we address the growing gap between how we are governed and relate to institutions of power, as well as the media that represents them, then we are unable to generate new modernist paradigms which can restart history. As such the liberal democratic-free market model remains hegemonic despite its apparent failings in the face of economic and social decline post 2008. In a post-ideological world, where the dominant politics seeks to minimise the states responsibilities and expand the control of the market over society, we witness a process whereby the meaning of words and political terms is dramatically distorted and undermined. The loss of meaning in political terminology is related to a loss of empowerment and increasing alienation in a market driven economy which values the 'new individual' above collective subjectivity.
