The Shock Doctrine

Updated on September 9, 2007

The SHOCK DOCTRINE, the latest book by Naomi Klein! In her book, Ms. Klein explores the idea of global free marketing and how capitalist, particularly those of the United States, have used major disasters, world wide to increase their pocketbooks and control over these areas and its populations, while the people are still reeling in shock!

Thru a friend, I came upon this short film created by Alfonso Cuaron and directed by Jonas Cuaron (also the creators of The Children of Men) which highlights not all, but many points of Ms. Klein's novel.

Klein has taken the steps, BIG steps, to fully research and publish factual thought inducing novels that touch on areas many dare not travel! If you would like to learn more about Naomi Klein check out her site, Naomi and definitely read her book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and her previous book, No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies.

      Thanks for posting this hub. I heard Naomi interviewed on the liberal station on Sirius satellite radio recently. I haven't read the book yet, but I look forward to doing so. There's little doubt that the Shock Doctrine is authentic.

      Thanks for the video, I didn't know it as well as the author.

      The Blue print of Mass Psychology Tampering using the same magnetic techniques than the Climate manipulation weapons (that's why Brzezinski links the two tightly) is explicit in "Battlefield of the Future" by Brzezinski, Rockefeller's Councelor

      So there's nothing secret except mass people don't read important books. They prefer to read Da Vinci Code or 1984 thinking it's just science fiction that's why

      I have not had the opportunity to view LINKtv., but I will have to try and get access, as I like her views and would like to explore more of it! True that her views are controversial, but her logic and research makes so much sense it is scary! Thanks so much for stopping in and leaving this information, I will follow it.

      How interesting. I had just run across this video today and explored this subject on YouTube. There are numerous videos there featuring Ms Klein and all are very thought provoking. Behind a huge fan of LINKtv which can only be viewed on satellite right now, I enjoyed especially the four part video set "Is Another World Possible" done on the Democracy Now show with Amy Goodman...this particular show also airs on LINKtv and one of my favorites. Ms Klein's views are indeed controversial but very much worth consideration.....thanks for posting this video here so more people will see it.
