naomi klein

not sure many people speak more sense in the world. she spoke recently about the privatisation of the state and war profiteering and how the war has turned into an old fashioned colonial plunder of resources.

"The only way to combat an economy that has eliminated the peace incentive, of course, is to take away their opportunities for growth. And their opportunities for growth are ongoing climate instability and ongoing geopolitical instability. Their threats -- the only thing that can challenge their economy is relative geopolitical and climatic peace and stability, so I suppose we have our work cut out for us to fight the war profiteers." - Klein
