An Exchange on Manufacturing Consent, Noam Chomsky interviewed by various activists (Excerpted from Understanding Power): “In fact, it’s extremely important for people with power not to let anybody understand this, to make them think there are big leaders around who somehow get things going, and then what everybody else has to do is follow them. That’s one of the ways of demeaning people, and degrading them and making them passive. I don’t know how to overcome this exactly, but it’s really something people ought to work on.”
