Naomi Klein

  • It is always easier to deny reality than to allow our worldview to be shattered, a fact that was as true of die-hard Stalinists at the height of the purges as it is of libertarian climate change deniers today.

  • [On climate change:] What if it's all a hoax and we've created a better world for nothing?

  • Extreme violence has a way of preventing us from seeing the interests it serves.

  • The parties with the most to gain never show up on the battlefield.

  • What we have been living for three decades is frontier capitalism, with the frontier constantly shifting location from crisis to crisis, moving on as soon as the law catches up.

  • It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message — spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet.

Naomi Klein, Canadian writer, social activist, filmmaker

(1970)
