There’s much to learn in the Noam Chomsky interview. He explains to Abby Martin the shift to the right in both political parties. He suggests it no longer matters what the public thinks, as major corporations and the richest Americans control our government.
NOAM CHOMSKY INTERVIEW
Noam Chomsky tells Abby Martin how the corporations have taken total control of our government. He argues the government’s only real function anymore is legislate corporate interests.
TODAY’S AMERICAN LIBERTARIANS ARE OUT OF TOUCH
Chomsky argues that today’s libertarians in America are out of touch with traditional libertarians, calling it a prescription for complete disaster. He suggests the right wing of America are advocating a predatory form of capitalism.
Noam Chomsky challenges our right to kill people in drone strikes that constantly murder innocent people. He points out that we would recognize it as wrong instantly if some country planned such strikes on our soil.
THE BERNIE SANDERS MOVEMENT
Chomsky also provides his perspective on the rise of the Bernie Sanders movement. He’s impressed, but thinks it should be part of a much bigger, permanent lasting populist movement.
These are just a few subjects covered in the Noam Chomsky interview by Abby Martin. As always, Chomsky speaks his mind and provides an interesting perspective. He holds the right wing, President Obama, and our entire political system accountable for multiple violations of international law and common decency.
