Naomi Klein: No Is Not Enough by Southbank Centre

Cornel West said: ‘Justice is what love looks like in public’. I often think that neoliberalism is what lovelessness looks like in public. Lovelessness in public also looks like the charred remains of Grenfell Tower.
Naomi Klein, author and social activist

Klein, whose landmark books including No Logo, The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything turns her focus on the election of President Trump and politics of shock in her new tome.

She sees Trump’s election as a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises, disorientate us and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security.

In this podcast Klein offers a toolkit for surviving these strange times, and lights the way toward a world in which progress is not reversed.
