At Riverside Church
Program #CHON199. Recorded in New York, NY on June 12, 2009.
Chomsky addresses a capacity audience at New York's historic Riverside Church. In his usual style, he covers a wide range of topics such as the escalating wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan, food shortages, the global economic crisis, and the fast looming threat of climate change. He concludes with an ominous warning: "Of all the crises that afflict us, the growing democratic deficit may be the most severe. Unless it's reversed, Arundhati Roy's forecast might prove accurate, and not in the distant future. The conversion of democracy to a performance in which the public are only spectators might well lead inexorably to what she calls the "endgame for the human race."
