Watch: Requiem for the American Dream 2015 123movies, Full Movie Online – REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky on the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality – tracing a half century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority – while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time – the death of the middle class; a swan song for our democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed, REQUIEM is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future..

instructive and sad. it is definitely an eye opener
most of people that I know are aware the the rich gain more that politicians are corrupt that bankers only want money for themselves etc.. but we know it because we hear it here and there.
this movie actually shows you how this is all engineered and does it in a way that slowly builds up and makes you even angry to see how much truth is in it.
But I am posting here mainly for one reason, I am neither American nor live in the US but in Spain and I can tell that over here (Europe) we have got exactly the same structure that this movie shows. It is an actual copy but in Europe, that tells that this is not US on their own with their economy and social classes etc… it is Global or at least common to the so-called 1st world.
In Spain and other southern European countries like Italy, Portugal or Greece it is not enough nowadays with having a full time job for not to be poor. Many salaries are around the 1K EUR mark those that earn 1.5K consider themselves somehow with a good salary but that is totally wrong with current earnings people can barely pay the rent, bills,schools, insurances etc…
Today’s poor is not a street begger but also someone who does have a full time job but cannot afford a decent live.
Really? This is the brain trust intellectual?
I was led to believe Chomsky was intelligent, this film showed that was a lie. Yes, i watched every second hoping for some redeeming aspect. Most of his logic had no track to a cohesive conclusion beyond money=bad. He glorifies some of the worst civil rights offenders, and vilifies others by tearing quotes from context. The cogent points he does make are likely by accident. Most everything else he says is self contradictory within the documentary, or has been radically redefined five years later to fit the morphing agenda. Maybe I need to go back a few decades before dementia clouded his judgment?
Best part is how an anti capitalist hit piece is totally funded by interruption ads. Go ahead and down vote me; I’ve seen what you cheer.
