Lyft is trying to tell drivers to “join” it in fighting to curb their own rights. Win-win-ism at work.
What Win-win-ism, the ideology, holds is that most problems of justice, of want, of inequity, are solvable through the kind of win-win we see here: Rich people pumping money into a for-profit company that has social impact, while being advised by a former cabinet secretary.
You see, Win-win-ism is a very useful public ideology. But what McGlashan seemed to understand very clearly is what I believe: a lot of things in life are absolutely win-lose, and if the plutes don't control it, somebody else will.
A rising ideology grips our world: win-win-ism. It sounds kind but is far more radical than Adam Smith or even trickle-down economics. It doesn’t say, Leave the rich alone. It says, Make the rich run everything. A sliver in .
The most honest articulation of win-win-ism naturally comes from the @GSElevator parody account.
