On this special edition of Making COntact, author and professor of linguistics at MIT Noam Chomsky discusses democracy and the "common good" with our National Producer, David Barsamian. The interview details the historical roots of democratic rights -- from Aristotle to the US Constitutional Convention -- and questions the role of today's private corporations that want to "undermine democratic functioning but ensure that there will be a powerful state to subsidize them," as Chomsky puts it.
