RESISTING TRUMP’S SHOCK DOCTRINE with NAOMI KLEIN at the Neptune Theatre
Co-presented by SEATTLE THEATRE GROUP, ELLIOTT BAY BOOK COMPANY, HAYMARKET BOOKS, and THE LEAP.
Join us for a discussion of resistance in the Trump era with internationally acclaimed journalist and bestselling author Naomi Klein. 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 sweeping aside 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 her timely, very new book No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need (Haymarket), 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 US and around the world. Naomi Klein is the award-winning journalist and author of such books as This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, and No Logo. Hers is a vital voice for and in our times.
