Naomi Klein: Disaster Capitalism

Nation columnist Naomi Klein explores a key argument from her new book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism: After 9/11 the Bush Administration launched a new economy, driven by the notion of an endless war against an undefined notion of evil. Read more in her 2005 Nation column "The Rise of Disaster Capitalism."

Letter to Naomi Klein.

For what it's worth, I just sent this letter to Naomi (the Klein one, not the Wolf one.) hehe

Naomi Klein.
I want to thank you for having the courage and determination to expose the evil behind what you term disaster capitalism. Woody Guthrie famously wrote “This machine kills fascists,” on his guitar. Hopefully your book will have the same effect by countering the propaganda efforts of the main stream media and the established power structure.
What I don’t understand is how someone as courageous and intelligent as yourself can dismiss the obvious inconsistencies surrounding the events of 9/11 as conspiracy theories, especially knowing what you know about the Iraq war. Without 9/11, shock and awe would have not happened.
It’s like accusing a bank robber of capitalizing on the opportunity to clean out the vault, but missing the point that he planned the robbery.
Two statements in your book stand out in particular. The first, a comment about the events of 9/11 being an “excess of reality” that the attacks were, at first, pure event, raw reality, unprocessed by story, narrative or anything that could bridge the gap between reality and understanding. “Without a story,” you say, “we are intensely vulnerable to these people who are ready to take advantage of the chaos for their own ends.”
Naomi. Why is it easy to accept that those people are eager to take advantage of the chaos, yet so difficult to accept that they would create the chaos in the first place?
You proceed to write that as soon as we have a new narrative that offers a perspective on the shocking events, we become reoriented and the world begins to make sense again. Well Naomi, that narrative is available and it makes perfect sense and coincides with every thing you propose in your book. It's the narrative of the international 9/11 Truth Movement.
The second subject I found fascinating was the comments on the terror events that coincidentally happened 3 days before elections in Spain. Aznar immediately blamed Basque terrorists but asked for Spaniard’s support for war in Iraq. Not only are the two not connected but the timing is incredibly suspicious. Fortunately, the Spaniards have good memories and are educated about not only fascism but also false flag terror.
In both these instances, you come close to revealing the possibility of inside involvement but avoid pursuing the available evidence to the next stage.
I can only conclude that either your curiosity or your courage ran out at this point. I would like to ask that, before you dismiss the people who do have the courage and curiosity to pursue the investigations of 9/11 further, you review the materials at Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth. (
I also recommend watching the documentary, “Loose Change Final Cut.” I would be happy to personally deliver or mail a copy to your office.
There are many people in America and around the world (thanks to the internet) who believe that exposing the fraud of 911 will undermine and even destroy the neo-fascist agenda at work in the world today. So you see, we in the 9/11 Truth movement are in the same boat as you when it comes to exposing and fighting for democracy.
Thank you for writing what the San Francisco Chronicle described as (I couldn’t have said it better) “The master narrative of our time.”
Sincerely, Homer Simpson. Doh.

Are progressives in denial?

Thanks for pointing that out Phaedrus, I was unaware the Klein was in denial about the truth of 9/11.

This seems to be a recurring trend with many leading figures and authors in the progressive field, i.e.: Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky, and Greg Palast. Strange the obvious is hidden in their minds. Does Naomi Wolf fall into that category as well? After hearing N. Wolf interviewed by AJ. and Jon Stewart, then seeing the above video, I had just assumed she understood the group dynamics taking place regarding the stratagems of 9/11.

Are progressives in denial?

It makes more sense to me personally that they are in denial than being purposefully manipulative with the truth.
Note how she says that, as people become more aware of these strategies and mobilize against the institutions that exploit the shocks, the shocks need to get bigger. Then she says that the Bush administration essentially launched a new economy because of the shock of 9/11.
How can she not make the simple connection? It's the elephant in the room for crying out loud.
It may be my imagination but when she gets to that part (around 3:00) she becomes noticeably hesitant and her voice loses conviction, as if having second thoughts, or building a wall of denial.
I just think it is their prejudice, or in the case of Hitchens as well as Dawkins and Monbiot and their ilk, it is their arrogance that blinds them to the truth. It is the dread of being identified with "conspiracy theorists" and Alex Jones followers that stops them from taking their theories to the next level.
Not that there aren't people in the progressive field with ulterior motives in suppressing the truth. I'm sure they exist as well.
It's just too bad that we can't put aside our differences and work together to defeat the fascist agenda. I've been thinking that if you could take a poll of all the people in the world, asking if they would rather live in a society like Canada with relative equality or like Mexico or Pakistan with only two classes, being very wealthy or very poor, the vote would be obvious and almost unanimous.
So, Why the hell do we allow such a miniscule, tiny group of elite greed mongers set the agenda??? We are the f*^#*ng majority.
Sorry, got a little passionate at the end there:-)

Bought her book - stopped reading after the 9/11 chapter...

Bought her book - stopped reading after the 9/11 chapter because is was pathetic.

Apparently she writes for the left gate-keeper magazine and web site The Nation.

The 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts

She does not seem to be a friend to the truth.

If she is one a book tour, perhaps there is an opportunity for dialog.

One thing that is weird about the above video is that it is made to look like an interview, but there she is just talking to the camera for 8 minutes.

No chance for the interview to ask questions. Just like controlled media.

Free Truth, Thanks to you,

Free Truth, Thanks to you, as well, for your insights. As stated above the so called progressives (add Bill Maher and Christopher Hitchins to the list) have no problem seeing the lies and deciet in the neocons, however, they find it absurd not to believe the "Official Conspiracy". This is troubling and suspect.
