Invasions & Evasions
Program #CHON242. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on February 02, 2007.
Chomsky talks about tinkerers vs. overhaulers. He says, “We should be in favor of both. Sometimes tinkering with the system can be of great help to people.” And addressing media reform, he says, “If you can induce the media to give somewhat fairer treatment of significant issues, that’s all to the good. It doesn’t change anything fundamental, but it can make a difference.” The conversation moves on to imperialism and how the U.S. power structure creates a web of euphemisms and fantasies to obscure its interventionist policies. He discusses Israel and the intellectual culture in the U.S. that supports it. He then goes on to discuss Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, Jimmy Carter’s book, and the ensuing hysteria about it. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
