The Shock Doctrine
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 Kline.org 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.
