One of the most comprehensive and potentially revolutionary documentaries around. It aptly circumnavigates Chomsky's left-libertarian ideology, and highlights the importance of actively deconstructing perpetual media propaganda. Absolutely compelling to the core. A true classic.
In 1993 Chomsky came to my hometown to speak at my college. My American Literature professor asked him how he thought the Internet would change the world, politics and the way we communicate. His answer was basically that it wouldn't. In my opinion, that sounded kind of naive. From the perspective of 2018 it makes him seem like a total moron.
Chomsky's radical political views are certainly the result of a non negotiable commitment to reason and ethical libertarian values. In particular his views on modern media indoctrination and proselytism by a self-indulgent authoritarian Establishment are as relevant as ever and an indispensible tool to analyse critically the current dynamics between power and its subjects. Relentless, articulate and frank discussion.
