A conversation with Noam Chomsky, legend of the left, on Obama, America, and the world.
Noam Chomsky is a blazing critic of just about every mainstream sacred cow on the planet. If it’s war for security, corporate power, free trade or complicit media, Noam Chomsky is at its throat, and has been for a long time.
An Old Testament-style angry prophet with a huge intellectual pedigree. He’s 81 now, and says he’s never seen anything like today’s politics. The anger and the fear.
He’s listening to talk radio. He’s listening to the Tea Party. He’s watching. He’s thinking. We hear what’s on his mind.
Noam Chomsky, intellectual, social critic, and professor emeritus of linguistics at MIT. His latest book is “Hopes and Prospects.” His other books include “Manufacturing Consent” and “Hegemony or Survival.”
