Naomi Klein on Disaster Capitalism:

. . . how conservatives have used "shock" as a political tool. Some years ago, researchers posited that one psychological effect of torture is that it makes people regress; they become disoriented and less able to protect their own interests. Klein says conservatives seem to have taken the lesson and have created or exploited various "shocks" or crises to advance an agenda of privatization and unfettered capitalism.

Lots of interesting ideas. Don't forget to go rate it up on YouTube.
