Naomi Klein Online

by Rebecca Schmitz

If you have a few spare moments to spend online, and need further proof that the “drill drill drill” crowd’s solution to our energy problem isn’t one at all, be sure to read this interview with Shock Doctrine author Naomi Klein on the Onion’s AV Club.

  1. Mayor of mayhem

    Rebecca, I have read this interview but not this book. In my opinion the result of unregulated capitalism is nine year old children working in coal mines for twelve hours a day.This happens in many parts of the world everyday and is carried out by people who think of themselves as helping the people they are exploiting. Corporations will always justify whatever is required to increase profits.
    On the other hand an educated comfortable middle class like Campbell speaks about in the 1930s, 40s and 50s results in real social upheaval, like the 1960s. This is not a tolerable situation for the folks who run things. After all it’s tough to make profit when people lay down in front of delivery trucks. In general multinational corporations would like you to be stupid and desperate, this makes it easy to lead you wherever they like.

  2. You should really go down to your local public library or bookstore and get a copy, Mayor.
