Counter-Democracy and Conflict Market Culture: How the Market Performs Political Polarization in Consumer Culture

The social landscape in western democracies is increasingly depicted as politically polarized. In this conceptual paper an alternative interpretation of the contemporary market is discussed; that of conflict as business model. Theoretically this builds primarily on Rosanvallon's (2012) notion of counter-democracy and the concept of conflict market culture is introduced.
