A good example of this would be the way in which unemployment is discussed. In a time of crisis like say, right about now, if there are 5 million job seekers but only 1 million jobs, it is always possible for any one job seeker to find a job if they’re flexible enough; it’s never possible for all of them to do so. Discussing the failures of the four millions left without jobs in terms of personal responsibility and analysing why they didn’t get a job (not educated enough, too educated, not willing to move, wanted too much money etc) avoids any discussion of the systemic failure of the job market.
People who profit from having a large class of unemployed (the reserve army of labour as somebody once called it) available, therefore will emphasis personal responsibility. In the UK this has influenced the ways in which unemployment is treated as a social problem, as the emphasis is now all on getting people off benefits and their personal responsibility in achieving this, rather than addressing the problems head on.
