Modern leftists - Naomi Klein

  Avi Lewis

The Third World


The mind of the left

Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein, despite her good intentions, is an enemy, not a friend, of the third world. Her ideas, if adopted, will increase, not decrease, poverty in the third world. The solution to third world poverty is democracy, capitalism, free trade and globalisation.

The genius Milton Friedman compared to the simple-minded leftist Naomi Klein.

Avi Lewis

Naomi Klein is married to the cynical Canadian leftist Avi Lewis.

"they have looked back at 5,000 years of human history - at pestilence and famine and disease and degradation, at genocide and civil war, at fear and loathing, at bigotry and ignorance, chauvinism and dictatorship - and concluded that our biggest problem is ... shopping."
- Daniel Finkelstein on the daft anti-capitalism, anti-consumerism and anti-globalisation preachers and campaigners who will keep the third world poor.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
