How did we reach a historically unprecedented level of inequality in the United States? A new documentary, Requiem for The American Dream, turns to the ever-insightful Noam Chomsky for a detailed explanation of how so much wealth and power came to be concentrated in so few hands. Click here to order this DVD by making a donation to Truthout today!

In this documentary, recently released on DVD, Noam Chomsky gives an overview of the miasma of the current political, sociological and economic situation of the United States. Filmed over the course of four years, Requiem for The American Dream shows Chomsky detailing in 10 points his sweeping understanding of the seemingly intractable inequities and lack of a robust democracy we find in our society.

The filmmakers ensured that this would not be just another talking head discourse: It is both innovatively animated and trenchantly informative, an incisive dissection of the disastrous impact of the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few.
