    Rise of the Corporatocracy3 May 2012 As I mentioned under The Shock Doctrine, this book is about the internal problems with the American Empire as opposed to the external concerns to the rest of the world In a sense it is the idea that our culture is being destroyed by a culture of consumerism and that idea of profits before people is the main motivator of the modern corporatocracy We do need to put this book in context though, being written at the end of the 90s, just after the anti globalisa Rise of the Corporatocracy3 May 2012 As I mentioned under The Shock Doctrine, this book is about the internal problems with the American Empire as opposed to the external concerns to the rest of the world In a sense it is the idea that our culture is being destroyed by a culture of consumerism an...

    I m trying to read through all of Naomi Klein s oeuvre, because I think she is one of the great diatribists of our time Shock Doctrine is one of the most eye opening pieces of non fiction I ve ever had the privilege of reading, and This Changes Everything, about climate change, has changed my behavior and attitude toward my surroundings probablythan any other book No Logo is not as impressive an entry into her pantheon, but it prefigures the talent that she would display in her lat I m trying to read through all of Naomi Klein s oeuvre, because I think she is one of the great diatribists of our time Shock Doctrine is one of the most eye opening pieces of non fiction I ve ever had the privilege of reading, and This Changes Everything, about climate change, has changed my behavior and attitude toward my surroundings probablythan any other book No Logo is not as impressive an entry into her pantheon, but it prefigures the talent that she would display in her later works Perhaps it s because it was a bit dated references to the influence of MTV and Nike abound brand hegemons like Apple whose share price has since increased by a factor of about 300x do not even merit mention Sweatshops were the cause celebre of the 1990s, and it s hard to say whether we hear le...

    I skimmed most of this Not that anything was wrong with the book, it just felt like it was stating the obvious to me Maybe this would have seemed like newer information at the time of publishing Right now, in 2016, with my anti capitalist mind, this didn t tell me anything I wanted to know.
