    1 thought on “Occupy (Occupied Media Pamphlet Series)

    1. This book is not written by Noam Chomsky per se, but is rather a compilation of transcripts from interviews he has done and speeches he has given relating to the Occupy Movement There is a lot of information and insight in this book for anyone who is interested in the Occupy Movement and sympathises somewhat with its political direction, but anyone wanting a in depth analysis of the movement will not find it here This is a mere pamphlet.There is some repetition of points made in the few section [...]

    2. I have a similar set of reservations about this pamphlet as I do other Penguin specials that have been a compilation of transcripts Ai Wewei Speaks There is a certain level of redundancy with some of the transcripts and no unifying narrative This however can be overlooked because Chomsky is a commanding orator and his views on the Occupy movement are compelling Occasionally there is a superficiality to his answers, and while he is excellent at showcasing the failings of the economic governence o [...]

    3. Oh look it s captain obvious again pointing out shit we already know Also what s up with page 94 and him saying chemical warfare wasn t used in Iraq the way it was in Vietnam Hello Fallujah I m sick of this guy now

    4. I bought this book on 23rd of May 2013, just a week before Gezi protests, totally by chance And now exactly 2 years later I finished it todayThis book is a transcript of Naom Chomsky interviews at different times but for Occupy act.I ve underline a lot of sentences and again it is very sad that history is reoccuring and nothing has been changedBut somehow the countless small actions of unknown people that lie at the roots of those great moments that enter the historical record with respect to Ho [...]

    5. When I bought the book a week ago in Rabat, I thought it was written by Noam Chomsky When I started flipping thorough its first pages on the bus, I discovered it wasn t actually written but SPOKEN by Chomsky This pamphlet is a collection of Chomsky s speeches and discussions with some Occupy militants where he answers their questions and provides insights for the movement.The book is divided into 5 main sections Occupy, After Thirty Years of Class War, InterOccupy, Occupying Foreign Policy and R [...]

    6. Independientemente de que consiguieran ser un acicate posterior al movimiento Occupy, estas pocas p ginas son, cinco a os despu s de aquella primavera, un buen recordatorio de lo que todav a nos queda por avanzar Adem s, tambi n son una buena invitaci n a reflexionar acerca del papel de los libros sos cuya extinci n tanto se presagia como armas cargadas , que al fin y al cabo es el lema de nuestra web Rese a completa libros prohibidos noam

    7. THE FIRST MAJOR PUBLIC RESPONSE TO THIRTY YEARS OF CLASS WARFARE Occupy is a selection of speeches as well as one interview made by veteran radical Noam Chomsky at Occupy events in the U.S late last year.The speeches are a mixture of Chomsky putting events into context, an extremely brief history of the Neoliberal era the Thirty Years of Class War referred to in the title of this review , a eulogy for the late Howard Zinn of A People s History of the United States fame and some reluctant but sen [...]

    8. Noam Chomsky nos entrega un peque o libro donde describe el porque del movimiento Occupy en Estados Unidos.Se realiza una critica al neo liberalismo y sus pol ticas econ micas como responsables de la creciente desigualdad en la sociedad y la acumulaci n de riqueza fuera de control que lleva a una acumulaci n de poder pol tico y de la misma forma a generar ciertas hegemon as culturales que resultan no estar en beneficio la gran mayor a de la poblaci n y perpet an e incrementan la desigualdad da a [...]

    9. Occupy is one of those books that has a lot of juice I knew this when I found myself underlining on every second page It s a small book by Noam Chomski though it is not written by him as it consists of a couple on interviews of him and his speech at the Occupy Boston a year ago.Noam Chomski is a Linguistics professor at MIT and that comes out in the extremely concise and clear way with which he writes and speaks His ideas, though sometimes tagged as anarchist are brave, clear and constructive I [...]

    10. This doesn t exactly have a narrative, but it s essentially Chomsky s point of view of the Occupy Wall Street movement which obviously became than just Wall Street told mainly through different interviews he did whilst at Occupy events It s what it says on the tin But, because it s a non fiction political book, of course it includes references to many other issues with quick snapshots of things like the Vietnam War, the meaning of democracy, and the importance of taking action for things you be [...]

    11. Occupy is a brief recap of some of Chomsky s speeches and thoughts at the time of the 2011 Occupy movement in the US If you re already familiar with Chomsky s political mindset, then this is much of the same, but if you re new to it, you ll find it a good little introduction to his ideas on anarchism and how people can organise for change in society At the end of this edition, there s a particularly moving tribute to the wonderful Howard Zinn and a brief QA offering legal advice to activists in [...]

    12. So stimulative, although very short Largely focused on the Occupy movement in the US, but is applicable to ones in else where or any other grass root activities Made me think of how I could take an active role to change system in my home country that is equally depressed and the world ultimately Also I got to be wanting to know about current affairs worldwide.

    13. Chomsky gives examples of successful outcomes of previous popular struggles and advice that the Occupy movement and others can make use of in this important present protest Many important questions were asked and Chomsky delivered useful answers to most of them Book also includes a tribute to Howard Zinn.

    14. great discussion on the potentials of the occupy movement but some of parts on the political economy of the roots of the present crisis i.e everything was okay until neoliberal assault 30 years ago misses its mark

    15. he encourages the movement to continue spreading ideas about a different way of living that is based not on maximizing how much we can buy, but on maximizing values that are important for life Yes What is important for human life What shall bind us together What do we value Let us be the ones we have been waiting for.

    16. That s a great movement I heard, just coming out here this evening, that the first Occupy the Hood action took place just yesterday in Boston And it s been happening in other places, NewYork, and elsewhere That s perfect It s just the kind of reaching out in the general community that makes sense People have to do it themselves I can t tell people at an Occupy in Roxbury what to do, and if I did, they shouldn t listen to me They know how to do it We should work hard to get this integrated And th [...]

    17. Occupy is a gathering of various interviews and transcripts of speeches by Chomsky on the ideas and aspirations of the Occupy movement Briefly, the sage of MIT sees Occupy as a result of a 30 year class war, which started with the adoption by the US and other Westrn powers of neoliberal policies in the 1970s, overturning the post war decades with their focus on industrial development and the pursuit of common gain In a reversal of this economic policy, industrial jobs were exported, and financia [...]

    18. what can I say other than with the name Noam Chomsky associated with any printed material it must be relevant and this little pamphlet is not a disappointment Living in Vermont, I admit that I feel estranged from most of the world I am unable to articulate how that happens, it just does It is such an amazing place full of small towns and clean air So as Mr Dick Cheney said we create our own reality, this is my reality and I have no real connection with out there except when I read little books l [...]

    19. Very quick read covering Chomsky s speeches and interviews around the occupy movement A critique that is clear within any book writing on a movement still in progress, still becoming is the immediate obsolescence it gains months, hours, minutes later Occupy ostensibly has lost a lot of momentum but it has ventured into other areas of community organization and mobilization in ruptured centrifugal collectives Occupy Sandy is a fantastic example whereby volunteers got together to help victims of H [...]

    20. Despite the fact that this brief text is the transcription of a speech followed by QA, its fire burns long and bright sending its light all around the country and to Europe where the 99%ers are protesting against the unbalance in our nation s economy and the demonizing of pubic institutions Obviously what s missing are the sounds of Chomsky s voice and those in the audience The speech begins with rather general comments that aim to validate and inspire the efforts of those involved in the Occupy [...]

    21. This book is not exactly written by Chomsky, it s a pamphlet style collection of transcripts of lectures and interviews, so it s a bit repetitive at times It provided a simple overview of the US Occupy movement for me, which was interesting in parts, in the light of recent political developments I particularly liked the hopeful tone of discussion about how changing the narrative can lead to action.
