Noam Chomsky is truly one of the most profoundly insightful intellectuals we have in this crazy day and age. Putting into perspective a world that doesn't make sense, alot of people have a hard time accepting the horrible facts as what they are, indisputable truths. Read it, then decide for yourself.

Noam Chomsky has been telling it like it is since the early days of the Vietnam War. Media Control is a wonderful introduction to the professor's ideas. You can always expect ot get a history lesson with Prof. Chomsky, and the history of Propaganda in the United States is an insightful one. His arguments are sound and not just based on assumption. As Chomsky writes frequently, don't just trust him, look it up yourself. Think for yourself. This little book is a great way to start.

i'm sorry noam! you are truely a brillant man; but you are really off target. i have to respect your incredible intellect, but you have managed to write a bunch of truely irrational ideas. The facts on Saddam Hussein are wrong, and I also doubt he is fighting for justice and dislikes conflict.
