The Harm and Damage of Unregulated Capitalism
Even beyond the question that is posed by Professor Hawkins in this article, I believe that we must begin to take a more analytical view or better yet a "deep dive" into that which the mass media churns out as being beneficial to the growth and development of nations. In this regard, I draw your attention to an excellent documentary, "The Shock Doctrine", which aired on KREM TV earlier this week.
As you probably have already discerned, I do not adhere to the "status quo" train of thought, which prevails and therefore welcome any and every opportunity to explore and analyse alternative perspectives to those which are churned-out by the mass media. The significance of this documentary involves the realities associated with the concept of "Economic Shock Doctrine", as espoused by American Economist and Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, Milton Friedman. Needless to say, I believe that once you watch this documentary, it may very well change the manner in which you view certain elements of history and the significantly sinister role embodied by the application of Friedman's socio-economic prescriptions. If the names: Augusto Pinochet, Richard Nixon, Donald Rumsfeld, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Paul Bremmer sound eerily familiar, its because the are considered disciples of Friedman. For those who are willing to question the so-called "authorities", I assure you, this documentary shall prove quite revealing!
