Another World …
Thanks to Throw Away Your Telescreen here is the Canadian journalist and author Naomi Klein addressing the American Sociological Association, in a meeting themed “Is Another World Possible” … an informed and inspiring talk (~36mins) … video here, script and audio here
Do we lack ideas or resources? Are we short of cash or political will? Or do we lack the strength of our convictions? (“Do you want to tackle climat change as much as Dick Cheney wants Kazakestan’s oil, do you?” …) When do elites make justice? Why this idea of our intellectual failure?
Very interesting answers from Klein, the author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Desaster Capitalism, a book described by John le Carre as: Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell.
… breaking the charity models … the bold evolution of the market logic and much more.
