   The Shock

An investigation of "disaster capitalism", based on Naomi Klein's proposition that neo-liberal capitalism feeds on natural disasters, war and terror to establish its dominance.  The Shock Doctrine explores how the United States, with the help of the C.I.A., became enamored of Milton Friedman's interpretation of free-market capitalism and attempted to persuade developing nations of its value.  However, since fully unregulated markets tended to create an unbalanced economic climate in which a small number of people became extremely wealthy and vast numbers were plunged into poverty, the United States was only successful at selling free market deregulation to countries in crisis who had no practical choice than to do what the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth demanded.  The results led to both widespread privation and violence in Russia, Poland, Chile, South Africa and the Middle East.  The Shock Doctrine explains how this happened, where it's still going on, and what can be done to stop it.

WAPJC Mission Statement

The Whittier Area Peace and Justice Coalition is a broadly based group of local community members whose purpose is to share a vision for peace, justice and environmental well-being.  This vision is grounded in the beliefs that all life is sacred; that differences between people and nations can be resolved in non-violent ways; and that peace is more than the absence of war or the denial of conflict.

  "Peace hath higher tests of manhood  
than battle ever knew."

~ John Greenleaf Whittier

  "I criticize America because I love her and because
I want to see her to stand as the moral example of the world.
War anywhere intensifies the possibility of war everywhere.
When major world powers flaunt the authority of the United Nations
and embark on unilateral courses of action they open the door
to similar actions on the part of other nations."

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
~ Theodore Roosevelt

  "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty, we must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.  We will not walk in fear—one, of another.  We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men; Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were—for the moment—unpopular."
~ Edward R. Murrow

  "A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles.  It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt… If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake."
~ Thomas Jefferson
commenting on the Alien and Sedition acts in 1798

Pity the Nation  ~  Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity the nation —
oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.

FDR quote
