Rockin’, Democracy Now Style

Filed under: Democracy Now, Struggle — t4toby @ 11:19 am

I caught just a little of Naomi Klein’s speech on Democracy Now last night.

Naomi Klein
ooh la la, I like em bookish!

Money quote:

We who say we believe in this other world need to know that we are not losers. We did not lose the battle of ideas. We were not outsmarted, and we were not out-argued. We lost because we were crushed. Sometimes we were crushed by army tanks, and sometimes we were crushed by think tanks. And by think tanks, I mean the people who are paid to think by the makers of tanks.

Here’s the whole thing.

I’m excited to see her new book.

We need to find a way to unite against the gathering storm. She seems to sense this.
