Naomi Klein: Say no to the Shock Doctrine

"Ours is an age when it is impossible to pry one crisis apart from all the others. They have all merged, reinforcing and deepening each other, like one shambling, multi-headed beast...

...the vultures are now buzzing. The business press is filled with articles about how the only way for Puerto Rico to get the lights back on is to sell off its electricity utility. Maybe its roads and bridges too.

"This is a phenomenon I have called the Shock Doctrine the exploitation of wrenching crises to smuggle through policies that devour the public sphere and further enrich a small elite..."


Kneeling is a mark of respect

It's showing respect for the democratic and egalitarian ideals that the American flag stands for, and at the same instant it's pointing out dramatically how far from ideal is the reality of life in 2017 America.

It's that simple.

republican lies on climate change are dangerous for America

Damn dangerous.

If republicans can't tell the truth about what is going on, then they should just STFU. Their lies have endangered America and made it needlessly difficult for people to respond intelligently to reality. Damn deplorable.


How absolutely, fundamentally un-American to have a tyrant illegitimately installed over America, and for him to be worshipped by many republicans as, in their words, a "god-emperor."

Such Royal, Inc. snakeshit is exactly what the USA was founded get free of. As world history makes painfully obvious, tyrant government sucks for everyone. Everyone that is except the "elite" sitting on their freaking solid gold toilets, eating "beautiful chocolate cake," playing with their putters, and fracking the freaking planet to greed-driven smithereens while climate chaos rages.

Yet now republicans, with the aid of their russian money-mob cronies, are overthrowing democracy in America in support of a deceitful, amoral, and mean-spirited tyrant with pretensions of royalty and faux religiosity. And to this republicans meekly surrender and assume the position as submissives. Some sick anti-freedom, un-American, weak-willed crap there. I'm just not having it.

Thank you for indulging my Labor Day rant, Achille

"This global warming bullshit has got to stop" - republican president*

republican lies are profoundly dangerous for America and Americans, as well as the rest of the world we inhabit.
