Support message to Kontext TV

by Noam Chomsky:

"Contemporary society faces problems of fateful significance.  There are many complexities and intricate factors, often poorly understood.  If there is to be any hope for serious approaches to tasks reaching literally as far as decent survival of the species, it is crucial that democratic processes function in a constructive way.  A prerequisite is that citizens have readily available to them accurate information, a rich variety of perspectives, and encouragement to think clearly and creatively.  In brief, they need independent media, free from the constraints imposed by concentrations of power and rigid ideological frameworks, both stimulating activist organizations and drawing from their experiences and ideas."
