“Requiem for the American Dream” documentary with Noam Chomsky

Discussion Moderated by State Senator Will Brownsberger

How did we become a nation that is so far removed from our core beliefs?

In this extraordinary 2016 documentary, “Requiem for the American Dream”, Noam Chomsky discusses how the concentration of wealth and power among a small elite has polarized American society and brought about the decline of the middle class. Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically
unprecedented inequality.

“Regarded by many as America’s most influential intellectual, Noam Chomsky is also a great story teller. Without overwhelming the viewer or the material, he marshals data, example and anecdote, cutting through 250 years of history to distill ten basic principles of wealth and power which have conspired against the American Dream.” Huffington Post
