The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

I 1st seen Naomi Klein talking about her new book was on Democracy Now she talked abour her new book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism." but what I found interesting was what she had to say about "Rapture Rescue 911: Disaster Response for the Chosen." That’s the title of Naomi Klein’s latest article in The Nation. It’s about the wildfires that just ravaged Southern California and the spate of new companies that offer privatized solutions to emergency management -- only for those rich enough to afford it.

I have always maintained that the Capitalists have committed crimes not to fight Communism, but to advanced their corporate agenda. Money is THE root of all evil! Now what I want to know is why isn't that taught in those ecomonic classes for surely there is nothing truer on the face of this Earth? It is why climate change is taking place and why so many species have perished recently upon this Earth.
