From the article on private firefighters:

“What we’re going to hear more of is sort of blaming the victims of these natural disasters who don’t pay the higher premiums to get this special service,” author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism Naomi Klein said on Democracy Now! Radio in July. “You’re starting to hear the language of personal responsibility…’It’s up to you to protect you and your family. You can’t look to the government.'”

“the language of personal responsibility”… Chilling! Adults having to deal with the consequences of their actions (and inaction)… Might as well go back to the stone age.
