Hey thank you for your reply.

I think we are talking past each other because none of your points seem to be connecting with what I am saying, and I don't have the time to go through each one.

Particularly, the climate change video where you seem to be saying that their solutions are not neoliberal when, and I need to stress this, "Vote with your dollars and vote with your wallet" is a neoliberal framing. They may caveat that language with vague calls for systemic reform, but that doesn't mean anything if you are asking people to do the same thing they are doing now.

Kurzgesagt is not neutral. No one is. Everyone has an evolving definition of pragmatism based on their own ideology, and you not realizing that in general is something that I think blinds you here, when criticizing a brand that I'm assuming has your ideological framework.
