Manufacturing Consent

Today I talked a friend of mine into watching one of Noam Chomsky’s documentary films (in this case “Requiem for an American Dream”).

I have to say that Chomsky’s ideas have influenced my thinking far more than anything I ever thought would influence my thinking … and I also feel there is something unsettling about that statement.

What motivated me to study information, propaganda, media, literacy, … any of the topics I care so much about today?

Our lives and careers become quite path-dependent at a relatively early stage — indeed: I bet a lot of people are shocked when they wake up to the fact that the cart is steering the horse at least as much (if not even moreso) as (than) the other way around.
