    I am planning to write a political theory (political philosophy) dissertation on the below provisional topic
    Positive Freedom Under Capitalism: From Possibility to <idk what to put here yet>

    I am basically going to consider the notion of ideology and legitimisation. And ask can we really be masters of our own fate under such forces? Are we simply products of a system? I know this sounds very vague and underdeveloped so don't tell me that. That's why I'm here asking for help from you fine people. Any readings suggestions are welcome

    P.S. Do you know which Zizek book is most relevant to my dissertation topic?

    Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman might help. It is a good read. I am also interested with that topic. We shall share a lot as you go along.
    Thanks
