If Everything is a Crisis, Nothing is a Crisis

In Atlanta, we've just come out of our GAS CRISIS! Thousands are dead. Lives will never be the same. What we have just experienced will never be forgotten. Movies will be made about it. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will likely star. We have all been traumatized. That's right, our coping resources were no match for running out of gas or having to wait in line for 35 minutes. Please pray for our recovery from this crisis as it will likely be decades before we come to terms with what has happened.

So, Jeff, maybe your next book needs to be "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism" by Naomi Klein.

I haven't read it yet, but I saw her interviewed on Colbert. Had me going "hmmmmm......"

Reg, I recently read "The Shock Doctrine." It was fascinating and horribly depressing. The things that have been done in the name of freedom, progress, and justice are just insane. Thanks for the recommendation! Now I can't sleep at night:)
