Knowledge can be turned into a weapon to project power as through knowledge, the subject can be sensitized to certain worldviews without the active use of power. The "self" is at the root of neoliberalism. The pursuit of ever-increasing utility is what underpins neoliberalism, even if this is at the expense of the collective interest.
Self-motivation books that are very popular on the internet now, drive this neoliberal agenda in a very subtle way and facilitate the depoliticization of the individual, making them more "self-centered". Most self-motivation books promote excessive individualism and encourage individuals to become more selfish at the expense of the welfare of society. The maximization of the sense of individual happiness that they establish is destructive to both social cohesion and social bonds.
