The Shock Doctrine

Torture or brainwashing to destroy the personality of the subject by administeringvarious shocks (chemicals, electric shock) to finally get him to say or accept anything… It’s possible yes!

Based on extensive literature searches, Naomi Klein argues that in the same way, disasters such as natural disasters or changes in plans, leading to psychological trauma, allowing singers to apply capitalist economic reforms ultra-liberal such as privatization of the energy or social security.

Such reforms are not possible without crisis. The people would revolt if notimmediately …
In the documentary “The Shock Doctrine” Naomi Klein uses as examples of his thesis dictatorship of Pinochet in Chile, Suharto in Indonesia and other South American dictatorships in general with the batch of torture that accompany them.

Policies that were performed in the United States since 1990, but particularly under the Bush administration, are particularly targeted, including the progressive privatization of security in the United States. This led him to become interested inthe management of the war in Iraq. For her, there has since September 11, 2001 to the emergence of an industry of Homeland Security: the clash of civilizations, the axis of evil and the war on terrorism.
This war was unwinnable abstract and huge economic benefits. Prior to 2001, internal security [U.S. note] was not an industry. Today, it brews more money thanthe entire film and music. Between September 11, 2001 and 2006, the Departmentof Homeland Security has provided $ 130 billion of contracts to private companies.This is the disaster capitalism complex, a new economy built on fear.

This is what the strategy of shock: systematic raids against the public sphere in the wake of disasters. When people are too focused on the urgency of their survival, to protect their own interests.
