In his final long-form documentary interview, Noam Chomsky exposes with searing clarity the forces and policies behind the coordinated campaign to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of a select few.   Articulating ten fundamental principles that perpetuate this vicious cycle, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into the demise of democracy and erosion of opportunity that are likely to be the lasting hallmarks of our time.  Required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.

We will be joined by the organization Fix Democracy First with some insight into what they are doing to break a link in the cycle. (see fixdemocracyfirst.org )

    I mentioned at the screening that Requiem could be watched online. Specifically, you can try https://www.netflix.com/title/80083790 or https://vimeo.com/ondemand/requiemfortheamerican or https://twomovies.tv/watch_movie/Requiem_for_the_American_Dream?sort=date.desc . Alternatively you can buy the DVD and/or the book at a number of places.
