Chomsky Has Faith That Western Nations Can Be Changed

Single payer ran into a buzz saw. The health insurance industry owns enough legislators to chew up single payer and spit it out as a useless and wasteful public option.
Over the decades that Chomsky has criticized the military/industrial complex they have become all powerful and almost unassailable. Nobody seriously questions their power and impact.
