@DaveGalanter I’m so so sorry to hear. Heartbroken. As I said to Dave, I owe him a great debt. So much of my imagination was lit up when reading his beautiful book Dead Endless. His influence on me and my work is profound, still today. He lives on in our hearts and imaginations. Sending you ❤️      source

Amidst the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico, an intense battle for the island's future is being fought between community movements and neoliberal plutocrats. In The Battle for Paradise, award-winning journalist and activist Naomi Klein delivers fearless and necessary reporting to uncover how shock politics and disaster capitalism are working to undermine Puerto Rico's vision for a just recovery. This gripping investigation urges us to consider Puerto Rico's struggle for social equality, sovereignty, and sustainability as our own.

@marzano_san This book, The Battle for Paradise by #naomiklein is actually a GREAT start. I recommend it to everyone. Regardless of statehood or independence, which at this point, isn’t the most important question, this is a great catalyst for the path forward.      source
