The Rising Majority
Governments around the world are busily exploiting the coronavirus crisis to push for no-strings-attached corporate bailouts and regulatory rollbacks
Building on her past work analyzing capitalism, Naomi Klein, in the book under review, does not stop with an analysis of the crises. She not only argues how to defeat the new shock politics of Trump (explicit in the subtitle), but outlines a resistance politics that not only rejects what she terms a domination/subordination dynamic but proceeds from saying "no" to the existing order to a "yes" to other values. Favoring the book, the reviewer wishes she had dug deeper.
Naomi Klein, the author of No Logos and other sharp critiques of capitalist culture and power, offers in her latest publication an in-depth elaboration of the book's title and a call-to-arms for a resistance that goes beyond criticism of Trump's malign politics to the need for mobilization on hundreds of viable and necessary fronts.
