The version of the United States presented by this book is so different from what the average citizen believes exists. I read this during Trump's 8th month in office and the best way I can describe it is: Trump is America only he doesn't know when to shut up. All of the policies he "cares" about are described as the SOP for the US government in this book. The only difference is previous government officials kept it as secret as they could whereas Trump just can't seem to help himself. Trump makes this theory easier to accept and that is so sad.

This is only my second Chomski book. I first read 'understanding power' (which I found easier to follow and more interesting). The book is interesting and I'm pleased to have learnt more about global order and the indoctrination we all experience to social structure. I found the reader to be a little flat and uninspiring and also the language and flow of the book could be improved upon. I still recommend.

Consepts are good just was hard to follow. the narrator was a bit intense and sometimes sounded quite bitter so could not listen for long. Next book of Chomsky I will look for his narration.
Are we really living in a democratic society geared to enable us to actively participate in our own futures? Or are those futures increasingly dictated to, shaped and eroded by certain vested interests? A clear and necessary analysis of the difference between what politicians and big business say, and what they do.
