Noam Chomsky quotes
"There is no reason to accept the doctrines crafted to
sustain power and privilege, or to believe that we are constrained
by mysterious and unknown social laws. These are simply decisions
made within institutions that are subject to human will and that
must face the test of legitimacy. And if they do not meet the
test, they can be replaced by other institutions that are more
free and more just, as has happened often in the past."
"The 'corporatization of America' during the past century
[has been] an attack on democracy."
"The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer
decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions:
kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships,
or modern corporations."
" Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience
of the [U.S.] media."
" The U.S. will not permit constructive programs in its
own domains, so it must ensure that they are destroyed elsewhere
to terminate " the threat of a good example".
" The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime,
welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all
the people. "
