To Quote Beyonce: All Right (Ladies) Let’s Get Into Formation
Political books in the past few decades seem very antiquated now, as they were written in the years where politicians played by the rule and there are lines that even they do not cross. All that has changed and we are entering a new era where a new playbook is being written as we speak. Award-winning activist Naomi Klein has always been in the frontlines in the resistance against the expansion of corporate power, so it is not surprising when she immediately came out with a new book when she saw that the 2016 American election was hijacked by the very people she was vocally against.
Written in record time so that it will be released soon after Trump stepped into office, Naomi Klein sends out a wakeup call to remind everyone that saying “no” is no longer enough, and resistance needs to translate into action with clear and specific agenda. Naomi Klein has always been the darling of the 2000s social movement with her continuous criticism of disaster capitalism and unchecked corporate power. No Logo, The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything expose failures of modern capitalism and the damage they wreak upon the people and environment. In her new book, she deftly summarizes her previous stance, explains why it is no surprise that Trump and his ilk is now ruling America, and what the readers can do to resist them.
Timely and urgent, No Is Not Enough is written not just for America, but for everyone who has lived in a situation where lip service is no longer enough, and wants to know how to about to incite change and progress.
