Noami Klein’s grandstanding as phony commie, unmentionably

Despite my prior respect for Klein I am going to once over this book and move on: it is still another ‘communism’ echo that allows a celebrity author to sound radical without being specific. If anyone else actually raises the C word issue, such celebrities can coopt it for their own public game and/or backtrack if the going gets rough.

I think if someone is against capitalism they should take a stand that is specific.

this is just grandstanding.
This also personal: I just wrote a book on this subject. Do you think I could ever have a conversation with such a celebrity? Never. Fuck you also, Ms.
