Noam Chomsky - The Mafia Principle of Global Hegemony
The world’s most influential living intellectual, Noam Chomsky, holds forth on the root causes of the conflicts in the Middle East and talks about hopes for future social change. The renowned foreign policy critic and linguist brings the full force of his rapier-like mind and deadpan wit to bear in slicing through mainstream misconceptions—many of them intentional—about the internal and external politics of Iran and Israel/Palestine. Chomsky eloquently contextualizes the power of the Israel lobby and the centrality of the U.S. in resolving the underlying antagonisms in the Middle East, while weighing in on how U.S. public opinion has shifted over the past several decades and addressing various positive directions for activism.
