Understanding What Is Happening To Us

-- by Dave Johnson

You have to read The Shock Doctrine to understand what is happening to us. I've said it before but want to say it again. It's really important to read that book.

It explains why we have this phony "crisis" over debt, or public employee pensions, why it is being pushed so hard and being used to scare people so much. It is called "disaster capitalism" and they need people to think there is a disaster before they will except radical changes like getting rid of Medicare, cutting Social Security, getting rid of public-employee unions, etc...

You have to read the book, the whole book.
