Listen here. How can a new generation of leftists learn from Chomsky’s practice as well as his theory? Our own conversation with Professor Chomsky on this week’s episode of Krystal Kyle & Friends reveals how important this question is to him. Chomsky hopes that his lifetime of work […]
I’m glad these YouTube programs are recording all of these final interviews with Chomsky before he passes, given that at 92 he will be gone very soon.
A reflection on the decline of Noam Chomsky.
This is just fucking sad. So Noam now agrees with Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson that Biden is some kind of revolutionary Marxist? After the Democrats have gone out of their way to marginalize any semi-radical elements in their party? Joe is so “progressive” he doesn’t even support […]
This is an excellent interview. Chomsky really puts the phenomenon of Trumpism in context in this interview. In recent years, Chomsky has at times gone off the deep end with hyperbolic comments but he doesn’t drop the ball in this one. It is good to hear Chomsky distinguishing […]
As crazy as Noam has gotten in his old age, he still stands up to the new clerisy. Kudos.
One thing I think the present uprising indicates is how far leftward US culture has moved in the past few decades. When the Rodney King/LA riots happened, they were mostly limited to the LA area and a few other places. This time the uprising was nationwide and spread […]
Two writers that have influenced my own thinking as much as any others are Noam Chomsky and Kevin Carson. Chomsky has probably influenced my thinking on international relations to a greater degree than any other writer on the topic, and Carson has probably influenced my thinking on economics […]
Todd Lewis and Nexus discuss issues that pertain to dissident intellectuals with a decentralized bent.
It’s good to see some of these more independently-minded progressives like Kyle Kulinski, Jimmy Dore, Krystal Ball, and Kim Iverson questioning the sanctity of voting. The argument that Chomsky presents for Biden is rooted in nothing other pathological right-wingophobia. Trump is a con man, glorified carnival barker, and […]
Kyle calls out Chomsky and totally nails it in this.
Glenn nails it down pretty well in this. He’s not quite where I am but he’s moving along.
Chomsky has a far more favorable assessment of Sanders than I do but I’m also more radical than Chomsky. The main thing Sanders has achieved is demonstrating that electoralism/reformism fails, which I guess counts for something.
Ron Paul sounds almost like a left-anarchist is this and Noam Chomsky sounds almost like an an-cap. It’s a shame the gap between an-coms and an-caps is so vast when we agree 90% of the time.
Scott Horton is interviewed by Tom Woods. Predictably, this is the best overview and discussion of Trump’s withdrawal from Syria so far, including a discussion of Rojava and Chomsky’s endorsement of US intervention on behalf of the Kurds. Listen here. ——————————————————————— Scott Horton joins me to discuss the […]
Chomsky on Trump.
Chomsky of all people should know that the US fucks up anything it touches. The US ambition in Syria is to replace Assad with a Saudi-like Sunni fundamentalist regime that will be subservient to the US-Israel-Saudi triangle and allied with Turkey. Like the US empire is going to […]
Noam can be a bit wacky a times (e.g., “April 15 should be a day of celebration” and “the Republicans are the most dangerous organization in history’). But when he’s right, he’s really right. Amusingly, since this interview came out, I’ve seen pro-antifa elements in the anarchist milieu, […]
By Chris Knight It is now fifty years since Noam Chomsky published his celebrated article, ‘The Responsibility of Intellectuals’. Few other writings had a greater impact on the turbulent political atmosphere on US campuses in the 1960s. The essay launched Chomsky’s political career as the world’s most intransigent […]
A very good summation of the present world order. It looks like Chomsky heard my recent speech at the National Policy Institute. 🙂 By Noam Chomsky The Guardian When we ask “who rules the world?” we commonly adopt the standard convention that the actors in world affairs are […]
