Noam Chomsky is one of America’s finest intellectuals – which means he is ignored by most of the population, who are allergic to anything that smells the least bit intellectual to them.
I just downloaded his latest Who Rules the World? that covers much the same territory as this interview.
My analysis differs from his – and centers on the baleful effects of Industrialization, that produced workers that were only parts of a vast machine – and could not think for themselves.
These different points of view are compatible – and amount to the same thing – America is in bad shape.
