THE SHOCK DOCTRINE The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi KleinSubmitted by quiltingsando on Wed, 02/17/2010 - 23:32
Holy Moly! A fellow taking a economics class told me to read this book. He has to read it for class. I am on page 19. You gotta get this from the library, oh, brother it talks about how Milton Friedman developed a strategy on when a disaster happens you go in and take over and make major changes (like 9-11). The big winners are all the private corporations and the losers the people living there. It also talks about how torture helps, this is some really sick stuff. Looks, like what is planned for us.
I know nothing of the Milton Friedman but he was big with Reagan and Bush, it seems. Has anyone here read this book and can give me some in sight. This does not sound like Capitalism but some demented form of Fascism.
The person who wrote it is Canadian I think.
Man, life is stranger than fiction.
