Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine – in Youtube format.

As some of you might know, well-known leftie author Naomi Klein has written another book called “Shock Doctrine”. She has also however released a short film accompanying the book, which I present here for your viewing pleasure:

A description of the book can be found here. The publishers of Klein’s latest book have been in contact with me and asked if I wanted to do a book review of this. I’ve agreed to do so, so once I’ve received the book from them and finished reading it, look for Shock Doctrine book review from me.

    [quote comment="7850"]For an interesting take on Klein and her politics, you should check out Andrew Potter and Joseph Heath’s book "The Rebel Sell".  They are both self-described lefties, but take the usual Klein-esque capitalist critique to task: http://www.thismagazine.ca/issues/2002/11/rebelsell.php Potter and Heath scare me because if the Left ever starts listening to them, they will be a much improved force.[/quote]
