Noam Chomsky is one of the most famous intellectuals in the world. Not only is he a leading linguist, but he has become one of America's fiercest social critics. In this series of interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality. He exposes with searing clarity the ten fundamental principles behind the coordinated campaign to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of the few. He warns that this trend will have dire implications for the healthy functioning of democracy, and our sense of shared aims.

Chomsky lays bare the costly symptoms, most of which are relevant to Australians: the evisceration of the labour movement, the collapsing dream of home ownership, skyrocketing higher education costs placing betterment beyond reach or shackling students to suffocating debt, and a loss of solidarity that has left us divided against ourselves.

This is the most penetrating insight you will ever have into the demise of democracy and erosion of opportunity that are the hallmarks of our time.
