Chomsky on Pozner/Donahue

Filed under: politics — Tags: , — codesmithy @ 7:52 am

YouTube has a program of Pozner/Donahue on CNBC from the early 90′. Noam Chomsky is their guest.

(Parts 2,3,4,5,6)

I’m still floored by the Chomsky’s consistency.

I often wonder what the point of demonizing Cambodia was.  Did the press hop on the massacres so enthusiastically because it furthered the narrative of domino theory?  Was East Timor conveniently ignored because it doesn’t fit into any necessary illusion, any prevailing myth about the United States.

As we stand on the cusp of enshrining a two-tiered system of justice by freeing telecoms from civil liability for past lawbreaking, there can be little doubt that the United States of today is run for and by corporations.  Chomsky correctly indentifies that center of power all the way back in the early 90’s.  If there is anything both political parties can agree upon, it is corporate corruption is not worthy of investigation.  The crime of Nixon was to spy on his political enemies, not the little people.
