I went to the Naomi Klien speech at the U of L last Monday and was entertained and enraged (both at the same time) as she talked about the situations and events unfolding in the world right now and the influence that free market ideology has on the world at large. She also emphasized that new policy applied after a crisis has often been waiting for the opportunity, for people too shocked by the event to stand up against bad laws.
Here she is on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher (September 19):

She wrote an article for the Guardian last week which contained many of the points she made in her speech.
