TOP 5: Naomi Klein Quotes

By | April 9th, 2010 | Buzz Blog, Top 5

On Wednesday, April 9, 2010, Naomi Klein, distinguished journalist and author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies and co-producer of the documentary The Take, came to Ithaca College’s campus.  A few students attended a Q&A session with Klein and hundreds of people came to hear her speak later in Emerson Suites.  Here are the top 5 quotes of her visit:

1) “I think, absolutely, there’s room for tremendous amount of discussion [about capitalism].  The problem is the media doesn’t want to have that discussion.”

2) “It’s very important to get my ideas out there. I hate the idea of self-censorship. I hate the idea of cutting off information.”

3) “All the work I do is an attempt to correct the narrative… to fill in the huge hole of the narrative… — the fairy-tale version of history.”

4) “You’re not in touch with people out of your bubble… just in your own community you can get out of your comfort zone.”

5) “Hope has never trickled down, it has always sprung up.”
