Washington's Messianic Mission
Program #CHON182. Recorded in Amherst, MA on October 11, 2005.
All empires have fantasies and inspiring rationales to justify their domination. They hide behind words like freedom, democracy and liberation to mask their real intentions. The U.S. empire operates in the same way. Washington's messianic vision is being delivered out of the barrel of a gun. Arundhati Roy, the Indian writer and activist calls it "imperial democracy." "Empire is on the move, and democracy is its sly new war cry. Democracy, home delivered to your doorstep by daisy cutters. Death is a small price to pay for the privilege of sampling this new product: Instant-mix imperial democracy, bring to boil, add oil, then bomb."
Chomsky gave the Eqbal Ahmad lecture at Hampshire College.
