Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need
This is the conclusion of a one hour speech by Naomi Klein about her June 2017 book, No Is Not Enough. It was specifically written as response to what she describes as Donald Trump’s corporate political takeover.
In spite of her scathing criticism Naomi Klein writes with an empowering optimism: She says that “Trump is making the need for systemic change seem much more obvious and appealing. “The No to Trump, she says, may be what brings people into the streets, but the Yes keeps us together into the future.
Her new book, No Is Not Enough, shows how to define that YES and what she calls the resurgence of the utopian imagination. Naomi Klein describes in detail the Canadian effort by 60 movement leaders and organizers to write the Leap Manifesto. They met for two days in September 2015. In what they admit were difficult negotiations they agreed on 15 demands. They can be found on the web site: leapmanifesto.org
The award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, film maker and author Naomi Klein was the keynote speaker at the Living Future conference in Seattle, WA, on March 19, 2017.
