Manufacturing Consent

Buy (or view) this! A bio of sorts of Noam Chomsky, focussing on how "democratic" societies mimic totalitarian ones by, yes, manufacturing consent (taken from an old Walter Lippman piece, in which he quoted it favorably).

Extras: Extended clips of a 1969 debate with William F. Buckley and of a 1971 debate with Michel Foucault, the entirety of which was posted a week or so ago here on the site. Also, Chomsky's reflections on the film around 10 years later.
