"It takes a genius not to see it", that sentence had me laughing.Although sometimes Ihave to do my best to stay focused to hear what Chomsky is saying because of his monotone way of speaking, I most definitely recognise his passion. He is not an extravert but his passion is real and true. This is an honest man, a rebel with a cause dedicated for many years to shine a light on the injustices of men in power.

None of this matters anymore; we now live in a doomed failed state; where our greatest enemy is now our friend, logic has been replaced with twisted emotions, morals are long dead, and fact is fiction. 1984, meet 2020...

I was a libertarian myself but no more thank goodness. I voted for Ron Paul once but thanks to journalists like Greg Palast and Chris Hedges I discovered the truth about Ron Paul and other corrupt American politicians how they betray the working class by supporting free-market capitalism which the Koch's and the Adelsons strongly promote. So shame on Ron Paul, Barack Obama, and the Bush's.

chomaky scares me. I dont want to believe a word he says because it makes me sad to realise how dark the world really is... how little we know about the powers that rule it.... and the terrible truth that you can't believe anyone or anything. :/

it's interesting to recognize that we are living through a time where the current dominant empire of the world has more control than any preceding empires in history. 1000 years from now (if humans can last this long), this period of time will be looked back on in a similar fashion as we today look back on the romans during the height of their power. i dont think it's recognized how significant and unique a position the US has in world history, and as somewhat of a history buff, i find it fascinating to speculate on what future generations will think about the US when they study it's rise, and inevitable fall.

U.S. Major General Smedley Butler: "i coulda given Al Capone a few hints. He only operated in 3-districts, I operated on three continents. I spent 33 years and 4 months in active military
service . . . And during that period I spent most of my time as a high-class
muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a
racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. Thus, I helped make Mexico and especially
Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a
decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped
in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of
Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of
Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for
American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for American
fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927, I helped see to it that Standard Oil
went on its way unmolested. Our boys were sent off to die with beautiful ideals
painted in front of them. No one told them that dollars and cents were the real

America's drive for profit at all cost, we see the transfer of production to China to increase short term profit. However the contradictions then set in, we see a rise in profits for the few but the loss of Americas industrial base. The rich get richer but at a cost of the economic strength of the country. So we see the spectacle of an outcry regarding the rise of Chinas industrial and military capacity as a direct consequence of Americas economic policy/free trade !

I feel like I have been sleeping my whole entire life. So the independence that so many countries celebrate isn’t even real.

As usual, Noam sees through the smoke & mirrors & tells us what's really happening. The real power always lies with the people - the trick is to mobilize that power and reclaim democracy, human rights & caring for each other. The present system is broken & cannot be fixed. Going back to the Constitution would be a good start. Put Noam in charge!

Settling in for an hour and a bit of needle sharp analysis but you start all wrong. Noam! Adam Smith's interest was in Great Britain, (he was a Scot like me) not England.

I mention this in the interest of accuracy, not national pride.

Hey Chomsky, Here is something you do not know: "The Evil Federal Reserve" at
Read this article to get your story straight about what is happening in the USA
Dear American:

Pursuant to your request, I will attempt to clear up questions you have about the Federal Reserve Bank (FED). I spent much time researching the FED and these are the shocking and revealing conclusions.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK IS A PRIVATE COMPANY. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power to coin (create) money and regulate the value thereof. Today however, the FED, which is a privately owned company, controls and profits by printing money through the Treasury, and regulating its value.

The FED began with approximately 300 people or banks that became owners (stockholders purchasing stock at $100 per share - the stock is not publicly traded) in the Federal Reserve Banking System. They make up an international banking cartel of wealth beyond comparison (Reference 1, 14). The FED banking system collects billions of dollars (Reference 8, 17) in interest annually and distributes the profits to its shareholders. The Congress illegally gave the FED the right to print money (through the Treasury) at no interest to the FED. The FED creates money from nothing, and loans it back to us through banks, and charges interest on our currency. The FED also buys Government debt with money printed on a printing press and charges U.S. taxpayers interest. Many Congressmen and Presidents say this is fraud (Reference 1, 2, 3, 5, 17).
