John Cusack Interviews Naomi Klein About "The Shock Doctrine" [VIDEO]

Cusack to Klein: "What [your] book rightly asks is...shouldn't we make a moral choice that you either make defense policy or you profit from it?"
In the video to your right, actor John Cusack chats with writer Naomi Klein, whose work has inspired his upcoming film War Inc.. Cusack says of Klein's new book The Shock Doctrine:
"This masterful book is a measured but furious call to arms. Naomi Klein is Antigone before the King, the antidote to the feeling of inevitability that says that we must accept murder as a legitimate economic policy. She has the audacity and the courage to chronicle the human costs of an ideology in which worshiping the markets is not enough; you must actually kill to feed them. Klein is the vanguard, the fire, the resistance and she challenges us not to join the suicide club that enables corporate cannibalism. A spectacular triumph."
