The election of Donald Trump is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. Trump's vision--a radical deregulation of the U.S. economy in the interest of corporations, an all-out war on "radical Islamic terrorism," and a sweeping aside of climate science to unleash a domestic fossil fuel frenzy--will generate wave after wave of crises and shocks, to the economy, to national security, to the environment. In No Is Not Enough, Naomi Klein explains that Trump, extreme as he is, is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half-century. In exposing the malignant forces behind Trump's rise, she puts forward a bold vision for a mass movement to counter rising militarism, nationalism, and corporatism in the U.S. and around the world.

Klein, a Canadian, points out that the middle-class in American is hurting because economic inequality was a great as the gilded age, but Clinton could not talk about it because she feared losing the millions of dollars in campaign finance from the 1%. Clinton should have more forceful on such topics as a higher minimum wage, improving the Affordable Care Act, stronger union rights, emphasis on retraining fossil fuel workers for renewable energy jobs, a goal of free public university and post high school vocational job training, and elimination of the 15% tax rate for hedge fund owners, etc.

The book that all your liberal friends will be reading over the next few months. A better subtitle might have been "Preaching to the Choir." I've followed Klein's work for years and think "The Shock Doctrine" is one of the most important political books of our time. Yet I found this, which admittedly is more tuned to the events of the past year and less research, to be a little underwhelming. Or, rather, I'm not sure who the audience is, other than liberals who already agree with most of what Klein says. StarGladiator and 1savvyvenus (see the first two comments) make some incoherent and unsubstantiated points, which would all do well to ignore. This could be a good gift for that cranky Republican in your life.

You can read an excellent review of this book on the Real Change website; realchangenews.org just type 'No is Not Enough' in the search box.

Better than THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING because of its slimmer size and greatly reduced number of footnotes, NO IS NOT ENOUGH is an excellent, concise intro to Naomi Klein's published work. Trump is the personification of modern corporate theory on hollow companies and the primacy of branding, which Klein covered in her first book, NO LOGO. Trump also personifies Klein's SHOCK DOCTRINE, having stepped out from his father's shadow during the mid-'70s NYC financial crisis to buy the Commodore Hotel at a fire-sale price (and fleecing the city of many millions in tax revenue). What's best about NO IS NOT ENOUGH is how Klein keeps bringing the discussion back to neoliberalism. Both Democrats and Republicans govern in its thrall. It's the doctrine that markets are always right and the public sphere is better after it has been privatized and the more corporate-managed multilateral trade deals the better. It is a bankrupt ideology that gave us Trump who won by running against it, saying he was going to tear up NAFTA and declare China a currency manipulator on day one of his presidency. Nine months later voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin are still waiting.

You have got to be kidding me? The leftist ideology is killing this country. So blinded by fake news they are openly welcoming jihad into our country! Little do they know their immoral Godless heads will be the first to roll in the end.

[The day that Klein begins finally referring to the Bush Crime Family, and the Clinton Crime Family and the Trump Crime Family will be the day I would ever begin paying any attention to her.]
In the past I've considered Klein to be something of an uninforming lightweight, not given to providing much damning information. After her attacks on Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks' Julian Assange, I no longer even consider her that - - just a temporal honeypot, someone or group who wastes thoughtful people's time, or a redirection specialist, not worthy of attention [somewhat like Antonia Julasz, the oil company // activist \\ who NEVER, EVER names any names, doesn't believe such people as owners exist, and she surely will never acknowledge any!!!!].
