the shock doctrine
This is a great example of leftist thinking gone horribly wonky. This writer sees right-wing capitalist evil in every move of the lefts, by now, boring and non-existent demons. Where is her rage at 50 million murdered in the Chinese communist's revolution? No, far worse is Haliburton building nice accommodation for our troops. She fails to see the difference between free capitalism, and controlled fascism as exists in some South American countries, or elsewhere. This is, as Bruce Dern said in a western, "just plain dumb and stupid".
