What Subcomandante Marcos says about The Shock Doctrine book

Sunday December 30, 2007, 1:38 pm Many thanks to activist Dorinda Moreno for passing along these words from from TierrayVida Subcomandante Marcos fo the EZLN said at a recent gathering in Chiapas: "I will recommend this book to you. It is this one. The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, by Naomi Klein. It is one of those books that is worth having in your hands. It is also a very dangerous book. Its danger resides in that it is possible to understand what it says. As I write this I suppose Naomi Klein has already explained the central axis of what's exposed in her thought, so I won't repeat it. I only note that it deals with aspects of capitalist functioning that are overlooked or ignored by more than a few theorists and analysts from the left in the world."...... "The signs of war in the horizon are clear. The war, like fear, also has a smell. And now we can begin to breathe its stench in our lands. In the words of Naomi Klein, we need to prepare ourselves for the shock."
