3.0 out of 5 stars The Inequality Movement, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Occupy (Paperback)
A small collection of speeches and interviews with the activist Noam Chomsky about the movement Occupy Wall Street.

The criticism more or less looks like the one presented by Anthony Giddens, Zygmunt Bauman and Slavoj Zizek but Chomsky is obviously more a part of the counter reaction, the 99 % – Occupy Wall Street. The movement sees it as its goal to attract the attention to the inequality, to reduce the political influence of companies, to provide a more fair division of the resources and to create more and better jobs.

During more interviews Chomsky describes the political issues of the movement as well as the political landscape of neoliberalism.

The last part of the book contains legal advice for those members of the movement that might get caught by the police.

The book is providing the reader with relevant information about the inequality that apparently has emerged from insufficiencies in our democracies. However, there is no clue about how to proceed after fighting. Will Occupy Wall Street be able to influence future legislation?
