McFreedom

A great lecture, if you haven’t seen it already

From South America, New Orleans, China to Iraq, Naomie Klein depicts with clarity and humour, patterns of McFreedom: corporate liberalization and militarism together with the steady neglect of the public sphere and infrastructure, the inherent need of violence in order to push these economic policies, and the accompanying narratives.

Klein highlights the importance of knowing and remembering history – not  fairy tale history – in order to recognize those patterns and react in a constructive way.
