In his latest interview collection, Noam Chomsky offers insights into the institutions that shape the public mind in the service of power and profit. Whether discussing the recent U.S. military escalation in Colombia, the bipartisan rollback of Social Security, the rise of for-profit HMOS, or growing inequality worldwide, Chomsky shows how ordinary citizens, if they work together, have the power to make meaningful change.
