That's a great movie but also read the book! And if you're interested in Noam Chomsky, this is is most recent interview on Occupy Protests, Tea Party, Anarchism, and Human Nature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se-Nq_rBQHk

This is great. The documantary "Manufacturing Consent" is also very good. I posted it here with a couple of other good documentaries:

Clement Walker was an English historian writing in the time of the English civil war:

"Walker's often quoted criticism of the democrats of the English civil war, in reference to spreading an awareness of meritocracy and the workings of government: "They have made the people thereby so curious and arrogant that they will never find humility enough to submit to a civil rule."
