Noam Chomsky: Occupy Has Created Solidarity in the US

By Noam Chomsky, Democracy Now!

15 May 12

Quoted from Reader Supported News

 

 

Noam Chomsky says the Occupy movement has helped rebuild class solidarity and communities of mutual support on a level unseen since the time of the Great Depression. "The Occupy movement spontaneously created something that doesn't really exist in the country: communities of mutual support, cooperation, open spaces for discussion ... just people doing things and helping each other," Chomsky says. "That's very much missing. There is a massive propaganda - it's been going on for a century, but picking up enormously - that you really shouldn't care about anyone else, you should just care about yourself. ... To rebuild [class solidarity], even if it's in small pieces of the society, can become very important, can change the conception of how a society ought to function." Chomsky also gives his assessment of President Obama, whom he says has attacked civil liberties in a way that has "gone beyond [George W.] Bush."

"We Are the 99 Percent" Creators Revealed  

Mother Jones Fri Oct. 7, 2011 3:00 AM PDT
