There has been no shortage of books chronicling the dystopia that is the Bush Administration. And in this job, I've read quite a few of them. None of them have made as powerful an impact as Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. I promise you, it will change how you look at government policy and responses. It also finally sealed forever, for me at least, the coffin of the utter bollocks of Friedman economics. Listen to me carefully, you free market fanatics: FRIEDMAN. POLICIES. DO. NOT. WORK. PERIOD. His version of 'free market economics' STIFLES democracy. They create an oligarchy that is the opposite of democracy.

Don't believe me? Author Naomi Klein gives compelling examples in history proving that "Disaster Capitalism" has been the foundation of government's actions and how none of it has been done for the benefit of the populace.
