About this item

Independent journalist, columnist, and documentary filmmaker, Lowenstein, cites his book as a product of the post-9/11 environment--the mass expansion of the privatized state with 500,000 contractors out of 4 million US citizens who hold Top Secret security clearance. He asserts that greater transparency be demanded from those institutions that create or perpetuate crises, including organizations that run prisons for asylum seekers and those that undermine the autonomy and livelihoods of local peoples in the pursuit of the resource dollar. He aims to shock, provoke, and reveal a world that has developed by stealth, but also to insist that alternatives are possible. He cites disaster capitalism as the ideology of our age, and seeks a more equal economic system and truly representative democracy. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
