Noam Chomsky Film, “Requiem For the American Dream” Feb. 2
“Requiem For the American Dream”—Noam Chomsky’s 2016 overview of a half-century of policies designed to favour the most wealthy at the expense of the majority—is being screened Thursday February 2 at 7 PM in the Northern United Place Auditorium.
Widely regarded as the most important intellectual commentator alive, Professor Chomsky dissects the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Chomsky blends history, philosophy and ideology into a sobering vision of a society in an accelerating decline through the death of the middle class.
The screening is organized by the NWT Chapter of the Council of Canadians.
“Requiem For the American Dream is a potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed,” says NWT Chapter Co-Chair Lois Little. “Requiem is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.”
The film is presented through the support of Public Service Alliance of Canada North. Admission is free with donations appreciated.
