Noam Chomsky on Government Reform

Political Activist


Dissent publicly against investors ruling government

Itís not a secret where power lies in the US. It lies in the hands of people who determine investment decisions. They want a passive population. So one of the things that you can do to make life uncomfortable for them is not be passive.

If you go to one demonstration, and then go home, the people in power can live with that. What they canít live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, people that keep learning lessons from last time and doing it better the next time.
