Two decades after Manufacturing Consent and ten years after The Corporation, Noam Chomsky now dissects the most dramatic development of our time — the extraordinary consolidation of wealth and power in the hands of a select few.
Filmed over five years, Chomsky unpacks the US policies of the past half-century, laying bare the principles that have led to this worldwide, historically unprecedented concentration of private capital and political influence, favoring a financial aristocracy while relegating the world’s majorities to the margins.
In a profoundly personal way, Chomsky looks back on his own life of political activism and democratic participation — sincere reflections that are not without regret.
Candid, intimate, unforgettable — this is the definitive discourse with arguably the most influential intellectual alive on the demise of democracy in our time — a masterly diagnosis of where we are and where we are heading; the ultimate synthesis of Chomsky’s extraordinary insights and perceptions.
