A little long, but truly awesome and eye-opening. I have Jeff to thank for introducing me to Chomsky and his bitter bitter (but entirely justified) views. Special guest cameos by the now-defunct Montreal Machine football team and the good people of East Timor make this the perfect date movie. The DVD comes with a bonus Chomsky Pez dispenser. (Just kidding Jeffy, relax!)

This movie was a defining event of my life, I kid you not. It's true, Mitchay and I went to see it. Then I saw in the theatres at least twice more. Bought the video; read tons of chomsky books, and even got his autograph after a talk at McGill.

He is one of the few truthsayers out there. When he speaks, you just can't help but realize that every one of our leaders simply lie to us continually.

Great movie. My first introduction to Chomsky. I'm always amazed how fantastic a speaker he can be. A true hero to anti-establishmentarians.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has topped a BBC poll to find the person most people would like to lead a fantasy world government.
More than 15,000 people worldwide took part in the interactive Power Play game, in which players were invited to choose a team of 11 to run the world from a list of around 100 of the most powerful leaders, thinkers and other high-profile people on the planet.

Perhaps the biggest surprise was the success of the American linguist and political activist Noam Chomsky, who came fourth. [after Mandela, Clinton, and the Dali Lama]
