Chomsky 87th Birthday Interview

Program #CHON245. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on December 04, 2015.

The latest in the historic series of Chomsky-Barsamian interviews. 

(2CDs)

Alexander Cockburn used to quip that the two greatest disasters to befall the United States in the 20th century both happened to be on December 7th: the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and Noam Chomsky’s birth in Philadelphia. In this exclusive birthday interview, Chomsky reveals his views on the responsibility of intellectuals, the root causes of jihadi terror, France’s role in Africa, a possible solution in Syria, the current state of U.S. imperialism, China’s strengths and weaknesses and evolving U.S. military strategy toward the Asian giant, the real story behind the Paris Climate Summit, and notable biographical details from his childhood.

Speaker(s):

Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky, by any measure, has led a most extraordinary life. In one index he is ranked as the eighth most cited person in history, right up there with Aristotle, Shakespeare, Marx, Plato and Freud. The legendary MIT professor practically invented modern linguistics. In addition to his pioneering work in that field he has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. Chris Hedges says he is “America’s greatest intellectual” who “makes the powerful, as well as their liberal apologists, deeply uncomfortable.” At 87, he still gives lectures all over the world. He is the author of scores of books, including Propaganda & the Public Mind, How the World Works, and Power Systems with David Barsamian.
