Looming constitutional conflicts between the de-centralist logic of functional diff erentiation and the bio-political steering of austerity and global governance

, just as, by extension, there are considerable differences between the electoral trajectories of liberal democratic parties. The interwar period of the previous century indicates that liberal democracies can and sometimes do experience crises in the guises of fascism and, to a markedly less dramatic extent, different kinds of authoritarian and consensual corporatism. A significant part of that story is intermittent recourse to different variants of legalisation/​Verrechtlichung, as well as religious, military, and executive abuses of power.

were in part derived from the critique espoused by leading Conservative figures from 1974 onwards. 71 After the mid-1970s, Thatcher, along with Sir Keith Joseph, vigorously attacked ‘the state’, its socialist architects, and an undemocratic corporatism with unions as the causes of Britain's ills. 72 State responsibility, they proposed, sapped Britons of their self-discipline and entrepreneurial initiative; robbed individuals and families of choice over schools and parenting; created corrosive ‘dependency’ amongst social security recipients; failed to confront

described as pluralism (Dahl, 1961 ). In such systems, robust lobbying regulations might ensure that decision making where interest groups are involved is unbiased and free from corruption (Greenwood and Thomas, 1998 ). Interest representation in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Slovenia follows the tradition of corporatism (Schmitter, 1974 ). In these countries, associations of workers and the industries are the main negotiation partners of the government and little room is left to other lobby groups. If we assume that lobbying regulations favour

Willetts is correct to note the ‘intellectual victory’ (1992: 49) of Late-twentieth-century conservatism in context 35 neo-liberal economic theory in the Conservative Party – this consensus now extends across the political spectrum. However whilst New Labour (at least in its early years) successfully appealed to the electorate on the basis of accepting the neo-liberal economic settlement and developing a better society, the Conservatives struggled to convincingly do the same. Regardless of

selfishly resented the implied loss in status that the equitable application of rationing delivered. Likewise, the extension of moral economy to a more total Catholic ‘integralist’ society, one ranged against monetary capitalism, centralisation and excessive state control and based on widely diffused ownership and guild structures, was dismissed by Fianna Fáil, unwilling to act as a ‘foster mother’ to Irish corporatism. Tensions also existed between church and state over the widely held belief that state price control was merely penal and not morally binding. The

The COSCO investment went ahead eventually, but under conditions that caused the Chinese company to abandon a large part of its plans and to seek instead another Mediterranean port. Did the dock workers protest because plans to develop the port of Piraeus had been abandoned? Did they fight for a reduction in public debt or in the budget deficit? No, of course not. They wanted to defend the benefits of clientel­ism they had been reaping for years, seeking the continuation of the mixture of guild corporatism, localism and exploitation of their

But when it came to the particulars of their visions of society, the anti-totalitarians were indeed a broad church. Some among them had a fairly socialist mindset (Talmon), or at least professed some sympathy towards social democracy (Popper or Berlin) or continental European corporatism (Aron); others believed in the minimal free-market state (Hayek). Yet others were exploring the models of the past, drawing inspiration

therefore false, to present a picture of a simple, uniform, unqualified and linear movement from labourism to neoliberalism. In this context we have seen, for example, that policies of state intervention, regulation, corporatism and economic neo-liberalism characterised the Hawke and Keating governments. Similarly, both Rudd and Brown sought to combine aspects of ‘the free market’ with those of social-democratic ‘moral economy’.

Thus while NGOs are reliant on the state for institutional support, the state has come to depend on civil society groups for the delivery of social services previously handled by government agencies, effectively making NGOs in China an arm of the state itself responsible for policy execution. For this reason, co-​dependence and corporatism remain accurate descriptors of China’s civil society
