On Power & Ideology

Program #CHON249. Recorded in Chicago, IL on September 26, 2016.

Chomsky is at his best during this stand-and-deliver keynote address in Chicago. He discusses the persistent and largely invariant features of U.S. foreign policy — in the words of State Department planners, "the overall framework of order” — and its intimate relationship with domestic policy.

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 88, 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.
