Absolutely everyone should watch The Shock Doctrine, a short film by author Naomi Klein and Children of Men director Alfonso Cuarón. The film is an accompaniment to Ms Klein’s new book of the same title and it’s a deeply moving work. I’ve just watched it twice and it’s horrifying and edifying and has left me thoroughly shaken. With little exception, we live our lives so blissfully unaware of the horrors our governments perpetrate on the world and the range of their effect. I’m thankful for work like this which peels the filters off our eyes and shows us what truly shapes our world. Take the time, watch the movie – it’s just six minutes, but maybe you’ll learn something that’ll change your world.
