Write 6 pages thesis on the topic military actions criticism. Her fundamental theme is an analogical representation of people struck by man-imposed-war or natural disasters and how big corporations take benefit of these disasters to earn massive profits.
Klein suggests that war and natural disasters in underprivileged countries are not just because of frequent internal and external disputes, but they are planned by powerful corporate and nations to crumble their infrastructure and make necessities of life unavailable for them. This is done to launch a new social and corporate set-up in a potentially beneficial land (Iraq, Afghanistan). For the above argument, she presents the vivid analogical examples of Iraq and New Orleans, both hit by destructive hurricane Katrina, both divided into developed and undeveloped regions with apparent rupturing infrastructure in the poorer regions, but neglected by the responsible authorities purposely.
In Iraq, green and red zones have no governmental agencies to cater to their sewerage, water, communication, or infrastructure issues, people are on their own for security and other basic needs. ‘Free market forces’ have evolved the green zone into Haven with the phone, pipes, road, electricity, and security, but the red zone is a complete view of sludge full streets and houses, broken and bubbling sewerage pipes, unattended aftermath of Katrina (48-49).
Klein stresses that the collapse of third world countries’ infrastructure is a result of unnecessary wars waged on them and these wars are basically commercial wars inaugurated by fetish privatized corporations for their regional and corporate benefits. Concurrently, the collapse of the sewer system due to lack of investment by the public sector took 57 lives (swamped sewage) in the capital of Indonesia (Jakarta). Likewise, the Minneapolis bridge collapse, flooded subway of New York, is due to the negligence of the public sector in terms of developmental investment for infrastructure maintenance. Thus, these investments are later invested in the development of the private sector.
