"Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? What went wrong, and what can we do about it? Naomi Klein - scourge of brand bullies, disaster capitalists and climate liars - shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting worse and how, if we keep our heads, we can seize the opportunity to make it better. She reveals how Trump is not a freakish aberration, but an extension of the most powerful trends of the last century: celebrity and CEO-worship, Vegas and Guantanamo, soft porn and hard power, fake news and vulture bankers, all rolled into one. His election was not a peaceful transit but a corporate takeover, by people who've knowingly harmed people, societies and our planet. Now their deliberate shock tactics are generating wave after wave of crises, designed to disorientate us and stop us fighting back. This book is the toolkit for shock resistance, giving all of us what we need (including tips such as 'how to jam the brand' and 'kill your inner Trump') to win the argument and right their wrongs. Don't let them get away with it."--… (mere)

This is my second review of this book. In my first review I got a little caught up in her heady negativity—she is very smart, so she can see all these things wrong with the world and get infected by negativity—but I don’t want to snarl. Yes, she snarls, and, to be fair, at everyone. Twitter’s too chatty, and rich people have too much money; everybody’s bad! And the world is evil. We want to cut down all the trees so that there can be more people to get insulted (and die). But cut people a break. As evil as humanity usually is, we don’t all act the same, and not everyone formally and publicly avers Mexicans to be rapists, so cut people a break. Just cut them a deal, right.

But I would like to know more about climate change and the destruction of both the natural environment and Native cultures.

I liked Klein's perspective but a part of me missed referencing and a more academic feel. Definitely worth a read if you are concerned for the impact Trump and his ilk are having on our world. 3 and a half stars. ( )

Rating of 4.95. A to-the-point description of the Problem America elected into office. ( )

With the next presidential election approaching, I figured it was time to read this before it (hopefully?) becomes irrelevant. Parts of this book, such as the author's insights into how brands like Trump are structured, are insightful and information I've not encountered elsewhere. Climate change, and how it intersects with other social justice movements, are clearly where the author's passions lay and make for the overriding theme of this book. Admittedly, this book was written over two years ago now, but the concluding optimism feels a little too far-fetched for the current state of affairs. I'm glad I read this one, but considering how much has changed since its publication, I'm not certain how useful this book is for understanding and evaluating current politics. ( )

Klein uses the concepts from her previous books (namely branding, the use of disasters to push through unpalatable agendas and climate change) to needle into Trump, examining his modus operandi and how how the conditions appeared for him to be President.

It works really well and I agree with her central statements that Trump is a symptom of our broken system (which she constantly eviscerates - along with Clinton's/Centrists woeful attempts to offer anything other a than the status quo) and figuratively cutting off his head through impeachment etc will just lead to another (probably less orange) one emerging. Although he should still be called out and protested against, more time and energy needs to be ploughed into more general, progressive and community based programs to try to forge an image of a new future.

Although too recent for her book to mention, Labour's recent success with a manifesto that doesn't sing from the usual neo-liberal hymnsheet and presents a politics of hope shows that more progressive ideas, often seen as political suicide, are actually popular and well received by the public when given a fair hearing. Klein's book is recommended reading if you're feeling depressed by the state of things currently, times are bad but there's definitely seeds of hope. ( )

… The two trends – the decline of communal institutions and the expansion of corporate brands in our culture – have had an inverse, seesaw-like relationship to one another over the decades; as the influence of those institutions that provided us with that essential sense of belonging went down, the power of commercial brands went up.

It means that, while our branded world can exploit the unmet need to be part of something larger than ourselves, it can’t fill it in any sustained way: you make a purchase to be part of a tribe, a big idea, a revolution, and it feels good for a moment, but the satisfaction wears off almost before you’ve thrown out the packaging for that new pair of sneakers, that latest model iPhone , or whatever the surrogate is. Then you have to find a way to fill the void again. It’s the perfect formula for endless consumption and perpetual self-commodification through social media, and it’s a disaster for the planet, which cannot sustain these levels of consumption. …
(while we’re at it, we might even spend less time producing and editing our personal brands on social media)
How it could get worse:
… some kind of democracy-avoidance strategy is needed, because many neoliberal policies are so unpopular that people reliably reject them both at the polls and in the streets. With good reason: as the tremendous hoarding (and hiding) of vast sums of wealth by a small and unaccountable global class of virtual oligarchs makes clear, those who benefit most from these radical social restructurings are a small minority, while the majority see their standard of living stagnate or slip, even in periods of rapid economic growth. Which is why, for those who are determined to push through these policies, majority rule and democratic freedoms aren’t a friend – they are a hindrance and a threat.
