Noam Chomsky's Occupy is like Thomas Paine's Common Sense. The book is concise and Chomsky is always on point. Through a series of interviews, such as one with New York University student Edward Radzivilovskiy, Chomsky explains the history of the financial and political crisis that we are facing now, building up "after thirty year of class war." The Occupy movement, he argues, is creating the necessary linkages that are developing the foundations for a better future polity. But there is a long way to go and there are substantive actions that should be taking place to reform the system.
