Many thanks to activist Dorinda Moreno for passing along these words from firstname.lastname@example.org
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."
