Shocked

Via Timmy, this piece of writing, from a Pandagon review of Naomi Klein's piece of shit, The Shock Doctrine, should surely qualify for Pseud's Corner.
I won’t lie; it’s a depressing book. I burst into small tears of relief at the end when Klein managed to carve out some signs of hope for the world, a light at the end of the tunnel for democracy and justice in light of the past 30 years, which is best described as a long-range racketeering scheme of the wealthiest designed to loot the assets of the poor and the middle class until we have nothing.

Mind you, that's only because, as far as I know, Private Eye doesn't have a Dim Paranoid Socialist Tarts Corner.

Perhaps I ought to get in touch with Naomi; I am avowedly upper-working class, I have worked reasonably hard and with a modicum of luck am considerably better off than I was when I left home (when I had sweet fuck-all).

Am I just a blip?

It brought a tear to my eye too DK old bean

Dear Naomi was having a delightful and totally ignorant rant against he world

she would have made a wonderful marxist in the days when it fashionable to be one

economic facts , trends etc are not for her

she is all emotion and indignation

let her have her moment of self indulgent drivel

at least its just a rant and she doesn't have the power to herd us all off into camps or Siberia ---

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
