2012 Harvard Trade Union Program
Program #CHON216. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on January 20, 2012.
Ever mischievous, when Chomsky saw me recording this session he said, "You're like a bad penny. You keep showing up." Ever since 1984 I've kept showing up to record him. In this presentation and exchange with trade union activists from around the world, Chomsky discusses a broad range of issues such as: why is the labor movement unable to capture the imagination of the working class; and how unions can get their narrative across in a "business-run society which conducts huge propaganda campaigns." He talks about "the paranoia" of the ruling class "who believe they should own everything." As with his other appearances at the Harvard Trade Union Program, this is Chomsky in an informal relaxed give and take setting.
