No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need by Naomi Klein

Posted at — Nov 2, 2019

The main idea is: saying “no” to something is not enough, you have to have an idea for a “yes”. So it’s not enough to hate on corporations fueling climate change and dismantling social welfare, you should come up with an alternative vision and push for it.

The book reads like a very long blog post; it’s not the kind with footnotes or references. If you read it, you should do it now, because it becomes dated by the second. And it’s paying way too much attention to the man who’s already getting all of it and profits from that.

The vision for “yes” is on the last few pages. I would love for it to occupy 99% of the book instead.
