You are Enron. We are Rising

Naomi Klein at The Guardian:

You – politicians and CEOs huddled at some trade summit – are like the reckless scamming execs at Enron (of course, we didn’t know the half of it). We – the rabble outside – are like the people of Argentina, who, in the midst of an economic crisis eerily similar to our own, took to the street banging pots and pans. They shouted, “¬°Que se vayan todos!” (“All of them must go!”) – and forced out a procession of four presidents in less than three weeks.

What made Argentina’s 2001-02 uprising unique was that it wasn’t directed at a particular political party or even at corruption in the abstract.

The target was the dominant economic model: this was the first national revolt against contemporary deregulated capitalism.
