My friend who reads alot of Noam Chomsky says democrats and republicans differ only on the basis of the industry through which they get their campaign money. Is this view point supported by Noam Chomsky? It seems rather strong. Further more states that public opinion in the states is "manufactured". nothing happens by virtue of the general people wanting it. any significant action, for good or bad, is taken only when the business sector decides so. What do you guys think>?
