On September 23rd activist and author Naomi Klein appeared before a packed theatre audience at the University of Regina to talk about her new book the Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.
In an era of growing climatic, economic, and geopolitical instability, Naomi Klein’s analysis of the rise of neo-liberalism and the political uses to which disasters are put is useful and timely. As William S. Kowinski of The San Francisco Chronicle has said, “Klein may well have revealed the master narrative of our time.”
After the sell-out event, Briarpatch Magazine editor Dave Mitchell sat down one-to-one with Naomi for an interview. Dave began by asking Naomi for her thoughts on what she thinks happened to the anti-globalization movement after 9-11.
