Regarding “how is neo-liberal capitalism related”. Urg, that is a long ass reply.
TLDR: The rights of normal people are being slowly eroded by the increasing income inequality gap between the rich and poor. Its happening everywhere, but quicker in the US than most places due to private companies being allowed to give donations to political parties. All this slowly results in the govt and business controlling our day to day lives more and more. Narrative/media controlled by the rich, yada yada yada, teach people who don’t know much (via fox news etc) to use the term ‘snowflake’ to poop on young people who complain about the obviously horrible status quo.
