4 reviews for Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance

  1. Nubar in California

    I am thinking of assigning the book in my globalization class. I love the combination of Chomsky’s matter of fact approach, and the more theoretical approach by his co-author.

  2. Chris Langlois

    Currently reading “Consequences of Capitalism.” FANTASTIC! Not yet half-way through and I have already covered one of the blank pages at the back with my own index of pages I need to return to and reread. On every page, Chomsky and his co-author, Waterstone, reveal history and make connections that flash like fireworks in my brain. Makes me re-think Robert Lewis Stevenson’s “Sooner or later, we all sit down to a banquet of consequences.”

    Lindsey,
    The plane did not vanish as you say – it disintegrated into small pieces consistent with direct impact into the ground at 500 mph. Conspiracy theories like yours delegitimize otherwise sound progressive ideas and practice. You can’t forgive Chomsky?

  4. Lindsay Holt

    I’m sure this last effort is destined to become a classic yet I still cannot forgive Chomsky for believing what is otherwise known as “the official story” version of 9/11.To ignore the idea of the supposed fact that for example, a jet plane vanished into the earth upon impact in a Pennsylvania field, is a true consequence of corrupted capitalism, nonetheless
    looking forward to reading “manufacturing discontent” in a time when the Orwellian “ministry of truth” nears just around the corner.
