Reconstruction: Coming Soon To Your Nation

Once again Naomi Klein gives us a new way to look at the neo-colonial order. "Reconstruction" of devastated regions from acts of God or acts of Bush, ordered by God?-Klein's phrase-is a way to re-order a society. It's a time for privatization, lectures on democracy, restructuring outdated programs, like health care, did I mention privatization? Give it a read.

I have to say that Naomi Klein is becoming just about the best voice around on this issue -- Lori Wallach, I recall, was pretty good with this stuff, but Klein's platform -- The Nation -- puts her voice out to so many more. Heard her on Democracy Now! this morning -- excellent stuff. Look forward to reading this article.
