‘Is Another World Possible?’ was the theme of 2007 meeting of the American Sociological Association that was held in New York City. “We did not lose the battles of ideas. We were not outsmarted and we were not out-argued,” journalist and author Naomi Klein said. “We lost because we were crushed. Sometimes we were crushed by army tanks, and sometimes we were crushed by think tanks. And by think tanks I mean the people who are paid to think by the makers of tanks.” Klein is author of the forthcoming book, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.” [includes rush transcript] http://www.democracynow.org/2007/8/15/naomi_klein_from_think_tanks_to
