Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine advances a truly unnerving argument: historically, while people CLICK TO DOWNLOAD (ePub + mobi). These events are examples of what Naomi. Klein calls "the shock doctrine": the use of public disorientation following massive collective shocks- wars, terrorist.
The torture chambers for some then match the torturing of the larger society. This is a brilliant book, one of the most important I have read in a long time. It's nothing less than the secret history of what we call the 'Free Market'. It should be compulsory reading. This life-saving book, packed with thinking dynamite, provokes and instills a calm.
It reveals a striking parallel between CIA prisoner interrogation technique and the blackmailing technique of the World Bank and I. Hence calm is a form of resistance.
A book to be read everywhere. She rips away the 'free trade' and globalization ideologies that disguise a conspiracy to privatize war and disaster and grab public property for the rich few.
She is brilliant on the malevolent influence of Milton Friedman and the University of Chicago's Economics Department in promoting global privatization. She offers an excellent explanation for the failure to repair New Orleans after Katrina.
According to Penny, revolution and joyful diversion are not mutually exclusive. We can have our cake and our Cake Boss, too. She's more interested in analysing the battles we face around gender under late capitalism. We are dealing with a new world order.
From the rise of Donald Trump and the retrograde policies of a new administration to the turmoil created by Brexit, Penny provides a rational but righteous voice in the midst of swirling anger, confusion, idolatry, and sanctimony. Zestfully indignant, resolute, and implacable, Penny's bold and brave commitment assures women of all generations that they have a tenacious ally, persistent observer, and feisty advocate in the always raging, never-resolved culture wars.
Laurie Penny is a smart, nuanced thinker. She understands exactly what her opponents are thinking, and why, precisely, they are full of shit. The Shock Doctrine retells the story of the most dominant ideology of our time, Milton Friedman's free market economic revolution.
In contrast to the popular myth of this movement's peaceful global victory, Klein shows how it has exploited moments of shock and extreme violence in order to implement its economic policies in so many parts of the world from Latin America and Eastern Europe to South Africa, Russia, and Iraq. At the core of disaster capitalism is the use of cataclysmic events to advance radical privatization combined with the privatization of the disaster response itself. Klein argues that by capitalizing on crises, created by nature or war, the disaster capitalism complex now exists as a booming new economy, and is the violent culmination of a radical economic project that has been incubating for fifty years.
Klein may well have revealed the master narrative of our time. Kowinski, San Francisco Chronicle. She paints a disturbing portrait of hubris, not only on the part of Friedman but also of those who adopted his doctrines, sometimes to pursue more corporatist objectives. It's nothing less than the secret history of what we call the 'free market.
