Shock Doctrine Neoliberal approach:

When a crisis arises that a central government is designed to deal with ( crises with high cost, large societal impact ), it suddenly becomes "to costly" for the government to be involved, and thus must be privatized. As more and more government services are privatized, one would expect the government budget to decrease. However the savings from privatization find their way back into the government budget through increases in law enforcement to police the newly disenfranchised class. This shock leads society to a state of Hypernormalization.
