The Shock Doctrine - Naomi Klein (Audiobook + E-book)

"Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell"
John Le Carré

Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine advances a truly unnerving argument: historically, while people were reeling from natural disasters, wars and economic upheavals, savvy politicians and industry leaders nefariously implemented policies that would never have passed during less muddled times. As Klein demonstrates, this reprehensible game of bait-and-switch isn't just some relic from the bad old days. It's alive and well in contemporary society, and coming soon to a disaster area near you.

"At the most chaotic juncture in Iraq" civil war, a new law is unveiled that will allow Shell and BP to claim the country's vast oil reserves… Immediately following September 11, the Bush Administration quietly outsources the running of the 'War on Terror' to Halliburton and Blackwater… After a tsunami wipes out the coasts of Southeast Asia, the pristine beaches are auctioned off to tourist resorts… New Orleans residents, scattered from Hurricane Katrina, discover that their public housing, hospitals and schools will never be re-opened." Klein not only kicks butt, she names names, notably economist Milton Friedman and his radical Chicago School of the 1950s and 60s which she notes "produced many of the leading neo-conservative and neo-liberal thinkers whose influence is still profound in Washington today." Stand up and take a bow, Donald Rumsfeld. Amazon

Sorry I don't ever really comment, but I do download a sizable amount of audio and e-books. Thanks for everything!

As an atheist libertarian, I do have to take exception here. This book takes a valid complaint (that catastrophe is being used to push through politically questionable legislation) and irresponsibly uses it as a platform to attack free markets. Come on Atheist Movies, throw us atheist right-wingers a bone.

Naomi Klein is a dhimmi idiot who 'argues' that for Muslim women the veil is 'empowering'. Her and her dullard husband (who works for Al-Jazeera) are part of the problem...

Not having a go at the guys who run this wonderful site (thanks for everything), it's just that this woman makes my skin crawl...
