    Whatever the other merits of Klein's book or this review may be - they've driven home to me the stunning, scary parallels between George Bush's and Vladimir Putin's flavors of corporatism. It was a democratic free-market society that had to be destroyed transformed in one country and an authoritarian state-capitalist (i.e., "socialist") society in the other - but the results are remarkable parallel, and seemingly becoming more so by the day.

    Damn George Bush! Damn everyone that won't damn George Bush! Damn every one that won't put lights in his window and sit up all night damning George Bush!
