A really big speech in every sense of the meaning of the word, I really admire Naomi Klein’s priorities and her insightful coherence; I also identify strongly with the points she makes, especially the deep context of indigenous resistance and resilient alliances ~ that resonate strongly with the narrative ascribed to Black Elk (qv particularly Chapter III of Black Elk Speaks “The Great Vision” http://stuff.samassaveneessa.info/docs/BlackElkSpeaks.pdf)
James Tracy had a go at Naomi on Global Research recently insinuating double standards, questionable corporate/foundation funding behind the Simon & Schuster book and her disingenuous negligence about already well-advanced “geo-engineering” agendas.
Frankly, I think this was a cheap shot. Sour grapes maybe? Who knows. Sure, we need to be awake to potentially cynical, self-serving agendas & big money controlling the opposition…but ~ I would suggest James might benefit from listening more carefully to this talk, and keep his powder more perfectly dry before spiting his face too irrevocably.
I agree with you, David.
