Doktrina šoka


Dokumentarec, narejen na osnovi istoimenske knjige kandaske avtorice Naomi Klein, poudarja glavne vidike avtoričine študije, ki problematizira porast »kapitalizma katastrofe«, ekonomske teorije Miltona Friedmana oziroma t. i. Chicago Boys, ki je promovirala prosti trg za vsako ceno, po potrebi tudi z izdatno vojaško asistenco Cie in ZDA. Slednje so od konca druge svetovne vojne naprej po vsem svetu širile svoj vpliv in iskale vire zaslužka; če ne po demokratični poti, pa (največkrat) z represijo. Friedmanove ideje neoliberalnega kapitalizma so se širile od Čila 1973 in Argentine 1976, prek Anglije 1982, Bolivije 1985, Kitajske in Poljske 1989, do Rusije 1991 in vzhodne Azije sredi devetdesetih ter Afganistana in Iraka po letu 2001. Vse so temeljile na skupni predpostavki: idejo prostega trga in neuravnanega kapitalizma je najlažje udejanjiti v stanju šoka – npr. v času vojne, vojaškega udara, naravne katastrofe, ko se navadni ljudje ukvarjajo z lastnim preživetjem ter se nimajo časa posvečati manipulacijam ekonomistov in politike.

Prav tako priporočam njeno knjigo No Logo, kjer napada in razkriva usmerjenost kulture v blagovno znamko in  delovanje velikih korporacij, katere obtožuje neetičnosti in izkoriščanja najrevnejših držav.

Naomi Klein, Canadian author and social activist known for her political analyses and criticism of corporate globalization, In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world– through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries. 
Based on breakthrough historical research and The Shock Doctrine vividly shows how disaster capitalism – the rapid-fire corporate reengineering of societies still reeling from shock – did not begin with September 11, 2001. The book traces its origins back fifty years, to the University of Chicago under Milton Friedman, which produced many of the leading neo-conservative and neo-liberal thinkers whose influence is still profound in Washington today. New, surprising connections are drawn between economic policy, “shock and awe” warfare and covert CIA-funded experiments in electroshock and sensory deprivation in the 1950s, research that helped write the torture manuals used today in Guantanamo Bay. 

I also recommend book No Logo, where she attacks brand-oriented consumer culture and the operations of large corporations. She also accuses several such corporations of unethically exploiting workers in the world’s poorest countries in pursuit of greater profits. . In this book, Klein criticized Nike so severely that Nike published a point-by-point response.
