Radical wins! Go Bernie! (tags)

With his promise of a dramatic expansion of the hardly existing US welfare state, Sanders is the only candidate who offers at least as radical solutions as Trump. For many, everyone else simply no longer seems trustworthy.

Chomsky at MIT: Between the war scientists and the anti-war students (tags)

It is now fifty years since Noam Chomsky published his celebrated article, 'The Responsibility of Intellectuals'. Few other writings had a greater impact on the turbulent political atmosphere on US campuses in the 1960s. The essay launched Chomsky's political career as the world's most intransigent and cogent critic of US foreign policy - a position he has held to this day.

Noam Chomsky: Media Control and Indoctrination in the United States (tags)

The Occupy tactic was a remarkably successful tactic. If I’d been asked a month before Zuccotti Park whether to do this, I would have said, you’re crazy. But it worked extremely well. It just lighted a fire all over the place.

Meet Noam Chomsky, academic gatekeeper (video) (tags)

Is Noam Chomsky an anarcho-syndicalist or proponent of the Federal Reserve? A fearless political crusader or defender of the Warren Commission JFK orthodoxy? A tireless campaigner for justice or someone who doesn’t care who did 9/11? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we examine some of the subjects that Chomsky would prefer you didn’t think about.

The War on Syria and Noam Chomsky (tags)

A careful reading of the “Left” liberals’ response to the Western-backed terror in Syria, reveals that the “Left” liberals have display a staggering level of complacency, complicity and outright hostility to the Syrian people. Representatives of the milieu of the “Left” liberals led by the like of Noam Chomsky have lost credibility. Their arguments are part of the standard propaganda talking points that serve Israel-U.S. Zionist ideology.

Five Minutes with Noam Chomsky: The Euro Crisis and the Welfare State (tags)

"Europe’s policies make sense only on one assumption: that the goal is to try and undermine and unravel the welfare state. And that’s almost been said. Mario Draghi said that the social contract in Europe is dead. Perhaps not ‘dead’ but under attack."

Deconstructing the reality behind The Reality of the "Lesser Evil" (tags)

Which is why core policies of the state do not change by changing the front faces in the White House. Often minor domestic policy changes are put on the table and “then, vigorous debate is encouraged within the limits imposed by unstated doctrinal orthodoxy” just to maintain the facade of democracy and elections being the harbingers of the much needed change.

He is author of the books “Heart of Ink” and “Venezuela: Revolution as Spectacle” in which he reports the so-called Bolivarian process of Chavez and the true face of his “revolutionary” government. Taking advantage of his conference tour in Germany, we interviewed Rafael for the magazine Gai Dao.

We Pay for Their Crisis (tags)

Making a game sound appealing whose frauds are obvious is increasingly hard for the governments. The neoliberal vision was always a society of the asocial. The categorical imperative of neoliberalism was always an open and cynical attack on the working class.

"Students Should Become Anarchists": Noam Chomsky (tags)

Anarchists try to identify power structures. They urge those exercising power to justify themselves. Then anarchists work at unmasking and mastering the structures, whether patriarchal families or the private tyrannies of the economy. Links to R Hahnel, C Milstein and M Albert.

WikiLeaks Cables Reveal "Profound Hatred for Democracy" (tags)

JOEL SCHALIT - San Francisco radio interview: Are US-Israel Relations at a Turning Point? (tags)

Are U.S.-Israel Relations supposedly at a Turning Point? On November, 11, 2009, the San Francisco radio program, KALW's (91.7fm) "Your Call" radio show, was joined by Joel Schalit, Israeli-American Jew, author of Israel Versus Utopia, to discuss the future of Israel. Israel is the number one recipient of U.S. military and economic aid (receiving more U.S. economic aid than the entire African continent), but its right-wing Likud government, and it's current prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, like all its other prime ministers, has bluntly rejected the Obama Administration's (peudo) calls (but no economic/military aid threats) for an "end" to internationally-illegal Jewish Israeli settlements. Meanwhile, the J Street (so-called, "liberal") Zionist lobbying project is setting, supposedly, "a new course" for the Jewish-American relationship with Israel. Could a new U.S.-Israeli relationship emerge? And will any of it make real change, or any real positive difference at all, for the Palestinian people?

As Professor Chomsky says in this interview "They weren't criminals. They were heroes". He points out "that the only way to remedy the injustice is to withdraw the charges completely".

VIDEO: Chomsky on Health Care (tags)

Health care costs are double other countries with worse outcomes. Up to 2004, these ideas were never on the agenda. In 2008 this changed. Manufacturing industry came out for universal health care since their survival was endangered by skyrocketing costs.

Noam Chomsky Meets with Chavez in Venezuela (tags)

"Chomsky said the growing disappointment with the Obama administration in the U.S. was predictable because the corporate media marketed Obama's presidential candidacy on the slogan of "Change We Can Believe In" but omitted concrete proposals for effective changes, and the Obama administration has since shown an incapacity to institute such changes."

Noam Chomsky at Riverside Church (tags)

"Technical solutions like cap-and-trade do not change our ecological footprint, climate change or the frauds of banks and big business. The edifice must be debated and changed: the role of govt, the purpose of the economy and the illusions about the market"

Democracy's Invisible Line: Noam Chomsky (tags)

The essential point is whether the state is entitled to determine historical truth and to punish those who contest such truth. If we allow the state to exert such power, we are accepting Stalinist methods. Fighting TINA means confronting a system of intellectual control.

Under the Spell of the Hegemon: Book Review (tags)

Chomsky Fears 9/11 Debate (tags)

When questioned about his stance on the 9/11 issue, Chomsky timidly regurgitates the official line by saying that the version we are force-fed by the mainstream media is "pretty much what happened. He claims that he hasn't seen any "credible evidence" to suggest otherwise.

Should Noam Chomsky Reset His Compass? (tags)

Noam Chomsky was interviewed for the 2005 book, “Imperial Ambitions.” In it, he addressed the Iraqi War, but he failed to take on the hawkish Neocons. Chomsky said the war was about the “control of oil.” He also ignored the influential Israeli Lobby’s role in agitating for the conflict. In the introduction, a colleague said that he “misses nothing.” Question: How can that be true, if Chomsky missed the six ton elephant in the room - the Israeli Lobby?

THE CHOMSKY/BLANKFORT POLEMIC - Interview (tags)

Tel-Aviv and Washington are linked in the Middle East. That's a fact. But the importance of this link in Washington's colonial politics is being debated in the anti-imperialist movement. For the US, Jewish, anti-Zionist journalist Jeffrey Blankfort, Israeli influence is central to US policy and the anti-war movement has failed because of its inability to understand the importance of this lobby. Having developed a radical approach to this question, going so far as to deny the energy factor in the war in Iraq, Mr. Blankfort nonetheless opens interesting paths on Zionist influence in the United States. We reproduce an interview he gave to journalist Silvia Cattori.

Religiously Organized Tooled for Brave New World Order (tags)

Was reading Bill Moyers' article (http://www.omniparticle.com/burning_ice2.html) about this stuff that Bush II has been supporting, and as I read, knowing what I know about statecraft, I couldn't help but to see how, as usual, people are being hyped-up and divided for interests that they're not aware of.

The Interest of Power in Brainwashing the Masses: Noam Chomsky (tags)

In a world full of potential danger, the risk for the global order and the norm of non-intervention on which this order rests is simply too great to accept unilateral actions against the collective interest. Allowing one means allowing everyone. (UN General Assembly 2004)

The War of Everyday Life, manufacture of consent and watering down dept (tags)

Of late i've been noticing a new deployment of coercion being reflected from a lot of college students. It appears that the Wizards of Is (or, Oz, pick your poison) have sent a new obfuscation order down to their implementers, or something where people's experiences and intuitions are reduced down to "mere opinions", while "reputable" views are somehow "more equal"!

Bush v. Bush-lite: Chomsky's Lesser-Evilism (tags)

There is no question that the Bush administration's policies are "cruel and savage", but John Kerry (along with the majority of Democrats in the Senate) supported most of them, including the war on Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, the war on Iraq, and the "No Child Left Behind" education act. As Marjorie Williams pointed out in the Washington Post recently, "Kerry voted for so many of Bush's major initiatives that in order to disown them now he can only argue that they were wrongly or dishonestly 'implemented.' This amounts to a confession that his opponent made a chump of him for the past three years. In fact, one might argue that Kerry is a poster boy for all the ways in which congressional Democrats have allowed themselves to be rolled by the Bush administration."

What's Happening? Boron Interviews Chomsky (tags)

So one day, Bush and Powell would claim that "the single question," as they put it, is whether Iraq would disarm and the next day they would say it doesn´t matter whether Iraq disarms because they will go on and invade anyway. And the next day would be that if Saddam and his group get out then the problem will be solved; ... When people give you contradictory reasons every time they speak, all they are saying is: "don't believe a word I say" . So we can dismiss the official reasons.

Terrorist Power Always Ignores Its People, Yet... --with art! (tags)

According to Noam Chomsky and others, the USA is the leading terrorist state in the world. Since *Newspeak* is the Name of the Game, "our" government will always try to fool us with hype, and failing that, will *ram through* its policies anyway. One way we can remain vigilant is through a *resistance of consciousness*.

Noam Chomsky on Plan Colombia (tags)

"Plan Colombia" provides an extensive analysis of U.S. economic and military interests and their role in supporting and rationalizing a "drug war" that has nothing to do with fighting drugs and everything to do with fighting resistance. This essay is reprinted from Noam Chomsky’s book 'Rogue States—The Rule of Force in World Affairs.' It is the result of Chomsky’s efforts to measure the world’s superpowers by their own professed standards and to hold them responsible for the indefensible actions they commit.

Zizek on Chomsky (tags)

I pulled this from the NY-IMC, and though I think Zizek has issues as well, i really enjoyed reading this little critique of Chomsky. His cult of personality is a little much. I really enjoyed another theory book called- The End of Education by William Spanos. Writen by a much less known theorist (another reason to dislike zizek and Chomsky) this book goes into detail about some of what zizek says-while talking about 60s political movements and their "failure of the radical moment."

Christopher Hitchens's October 8 Nation magazine column provoked a spate of mail, both pro and con, which led to Hitchens's elaboration for the Nation website, in which he took many progressives to task, including Noam Chomsky, for being soft on what he calls "Islamic Fascism." Chomsky then replied, and a further exchange ensued. All of this discussion can be found on this link to the Nation.
