Our very best wishes to Professor Noam Chomsky on his 86th birthday in gratitude for his singular role speaking truth to power since the Vietnam era!
“What is called ‘capitalism’ is basically a system of corporate mercantilism, with huge and largely unaccountable private tyrannies exercising vast control over the economy, political systems, and social and cultural life, operating in close co-operation with powerful states that intervene massively in the domestic economy and international society. That is dramatically true of the United States, contrary to much illusion.” – Noam Chomsky

An interesting read from Tom Foremski, former Financial Times journalist, about how Silicon Valley’s socially conscious culture changed in just 10 years:
“Silicon Valley companies have discovered the simple fact you can have your cake and eat it because there’s always more cake. You can be shitty and behave despicably and never have to eat humble pie because there will always be more cake.
And like water, this culture of amorality doesn’t set out to be evil, but it also doesn’t set out to do good — it sets out to see what it can get away with, what holes it can find to win and keep winning.”
