"Requiem for the American Dream" - Inequality, the Deliberate Concentration of Wealth and Power in the Hands of a Select Few (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This November 2019 video presents a definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive. The focus is on a defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. The interviews were filmed over a four year period, before the Coronavirus pandemic, citizen lockdowns, mandatory face masks and threatened forced vaccinations.
In these interviews, Chomsky unpacks the principles which have brought America to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality – tracing a half-century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority – while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. 
Chomsky provides insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time – the death of the middle class and the swan song of functioning democracy. A strong reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed, the video “Requiem for the American Dream” should be required viewing for all citizens who hope to maintain a shared stake in the future of America.
…inequality has a corrosive and harmful effect on society as a whole.
Where is the sense of hopefulness which was seen and felt in America during the Great Depression, when citizens knew if they worked hard they could improve their lifestyle. The inequality which exists today and keeps growing has left many Americans with a feeling of hopelessness as they see the distribution of wealth stay beyond their grasp no matter how hard they work, how much they save.
The deluge of authoritarian steps implemented during 2020 have only hastened the distance between the few who have it all and the many who continue to lose it all, constantly missing out on ‘catching the brass ring’. Does this list remind you of what is happening today?
