No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump's Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need Unfortunately I am of an age when I can only reflect on how my generation has failed I can take some solace in various stints of volunteer work but alas the wide world around me tells me we have in many ways failed Still, it is good to know that tabs are being kept and Naomi Klein gives detailed facts and figures of the various assaults upon our world by the neoliberal elite, driving the multi national corporations whose ambitions see little else other than the maximising of profit and the retention of power this pursuit built upon an economics of infinite growth in a finite world Hopefully the tide will turn Our young seem genned up, aware, willing to get up and actually do something Or, as Naomi Klein would say, make the leap This book is just a small link in the chain, worth reading Thank you. I thoroughly recommend all of Naomi Klein s books and this is no exception its gift for the reader is some much needed new understandings of the practices of Donald Trump et al Nancy Maclean s Democracy in Chains is also a brilliant book, which approaches this subject from an historical perspective, is also highly recommended. This book gives the reasons behind Donald Trump s rise to the most powerful position in the world and how he is a symptom of a diseased political outlook and system This system has used the shock waves of disasters, both military and natural to push through policies, while the voter s attention is taken up Klein describes in an easy, but direct tone how this has been used time and time again to pull the wool over our eyes She goes further and thankfully shows that there are groups getting together to push a positive and radical approach to how we can live and govern, with a greener, inclusive and healthier attitude Naomi explains that a new radical way is possible, when we learn to see through the shocks, stand firm and say No Makes sense of a world that is deliberately being thrown into confusion so that a tiny minority can profit while the rest of us pay.The great thing about this book is the hope that it gives from about 2 3 of the way through there is analysis of what can be done.Disaster Capitalism wants us to give up and let them plunder everything This doesn t have to happen. This is a book it would be worthwhile for everyone to read It is a clear and we ll researchedacount of where the world has arrived at with particular reference to the US offering a positive message of hope and practical means of overcoming the negative spiral of events and creating a peaple centred world. It gives hope to those of us who feel like shrugging our shoulders and thinking we are ineffectual It explains why we feel marginalised and how we can begin to change that It s not just a rant against Trump it gives him a contextone to alter, or risk our planet.
