The Shock Doctrine
Posted by coventryrm on Friday, May 23, 2008
I just finished reading “The Shock Doctrine” by Naomi Klein, I felt the Author did a great job of presenting a very interesting view of the USA’s role in world economics and the “shocking” techniques that have been used to implement so called “Free Markets” globally. After reading this book you could certainly understand why certain countries or groups of people have such feelings of hostility towards the USA. Sheds a different light on why we have soldiers being killed in Iraq and our reasons for being there (I would also suggest watching the movie – “Iraq for sale”)
While I was searching the Web to verify and research the information presented and discussed in the book I found the above link and found that a short film had been produced, a little teaser that may compel someone to pick up this book and read it.
Perhaps we can change the pace here and get off of religion for a bit and see what people have to say that have read this book or perhaps you might want to take the time and pick it up and give it a read yourself.
