Originally published in Z Magazine in 1990, Noam Chomskyís erudite discussion of the decline of democratic ideals in Nicaragua following the 1990 elections are still relevant today. Wether it is Iraq or Libya, the spectacle of democracy has come to mean more than the ideal of democracy. Chomsky provides detailed examples of American interests in other parts of the world and how the media is complicit in portraying the US as a benevolent superpower.
