  •  Please read Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein (7+ / 0-)

    The super powerful corporatist folks have 3 primary goals that they've been advancing globally for decades; privatization, deregulation and the shredding of social spending efforts.

    They will advance these objections by any means available. No man-made or natural disaster will hinder this effort. On the contrary, disasters create the opportunities to implement Hayek's and Friedman's fondest dreams.

    It's insane, it's brutal, it devastates the non-elite classes. That's even partially the point. But, they call it freedom.

    See Indonesia, Chile, Argentina, Thatcherite Britain, New Orleans, post 9/11 USA, post Tsunami Asia, Iraq, etc. etc. etc.
