Progressive social critic Naomi Klein, author of "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism," is in town to deliver the Mario Savio Memorial Lecture at UC Berkeley. She’ll focus on California, where, she says, the budget is being balanced on the backs of the poor and the constitution allows a Republican minority to block taxes and social spending. She sees the Golden State as an example of government siding with profit takers at the expense of the public good.
