Noam Chomsky Quote: “The media are a corporate monopoly. They have the same point of view. The two parties are two factions of the business party. Most of the population doesn’t even bother voting because it looks meaningless. They’re marginalized and properly distracted. At least that’s the goal.”
Noam Chomsky Quote: “As long as each individual is facing the television tube alone, formal freedom poses no threat to privilege.”
